From the studio which produced Cartoon Network’s EMEA-produced hit series, The Amazing World of Gumball, comes the brand-new Cartoon Network original show The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe. Set in a world of swashbuckling heroes, royal rivalries, and magical fairy-tale creatures, Prince Ivandoe’s quest will take him far away from home and place him in the path of unimaginable dangers … and some rather spectacular nincompoops!
The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe shorts first premiered on Cartoon Network Africa in February 2018. It went on to rank as the #1 show across all kids’ channels in Africa during its time slot*. Following the success of the short-form series, the brand-new five-chapter show introduces new colourful kingdoms and characters and returns to some familiar characters such as Prince Ivandoe’s nemesis, the awful Prince Svan, Jezebel, the tricky Robber Princess, and who could forget the staggeringly odd Sassy Gnomes. In Chapter One, Prince Ivandoe bids farewell to ‘The Kingdom of the Mighty Stag’ and sets off on his quest through The Five Kingdoms, in five distinct chapters that will lead him ultimately to the mysterious Eagle Mountain and the legendary ‘Golden Feather’ – said to grant one’s true heart’s desire.
Created by Danish animators Christian Bøving-Andersen and Eva Lee Wallberg and produced by Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe in London, the new series will see the original’s three-minute shorts robustly expanded into 20 episodes that are each 11 minutes long, introducing viewers to even more intriguing characters, slapstick comedy and exciting adventures. True to Cartoon Network’s humour and wackiness, fans of all ages will find plenty of funny moments to make them laugh out loud.
Kids can also take up their own quest at Fourways Mall in Sandton, Johannesburg, from Wednesday, 31 May, to Sunday, 4 June. Fun challenges will await them in the giant maze in the mall’s centre court – with prizes up for grabs for the valiant princes and princesses who complete their quest!
Join Prince Ivandoe on his journey through Svanland and The Forest of Outlaws in the first two chapters of The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe on Cartoon Network Africa from Monday, 15 May, at 16:50 CAT and every weekday. QUEST ON!!!
