TELETOON today launched a new online contest that will see one lucky Canadian viewer win a spot as a contestant on the English-language version of its hit Hollywood Squares-inspired animation and live-action show, Skatoony, a TELETOON original production.
Starting today and running until Sunday, March 20, 2011 at teletoon.com, eligible kids can enter to appear alongside an assortment of well-known animated characters from TELETOONâ€™s original productions. Hosted by the animated duo of Chudd Chudders and his sidekick announcer, The Earl, Skatoony features real-life and animated contestants competing in four side-splitting trivia-based rounds to win bragging rights as well as a terrific prize. The contest winner will receive a trip to Toronto for the filming and $1,000 spending money.
TELETOON is also running the contest for the French-language version of the series from Monday, February 28 to Thursday, March 31, 2011. Full contest rules and regulations for the English and French-language contests are available online at teletoon.com.
In anticipation of their potential rise to stardom, kids can play the new Skatoony game online at teletoon.com where they can play live against their friends. Kids can register and create their very own avatar then customize its appearance in the online â€œstoreâ€ using Skatoony bucks earned by playing the game.
Skatoony airs every Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT on TELETOON.
Skatoony was produced by marblemedia for TELETOON Canada inc. and is based on the Cartoon Network U.K. format. The series premiered on TELETOON in November 2010 and the second season is currently in production.
