Boomerang UK New Show Taffy Premieres Monday 7th January
On Monday (7th January) at 4.30pm, Boomerang UK will be premiering a brand new show called “Taffy”. The show follows the misadventures of a raccoon called Scraggs posing as a cat named “Taffy”. Scraggs is down on his luck and is very hungry, but one day he discovers a mansion that has just thrown a pile of perfectly good food away, then Scraggs’ future rival – a dog named Bentley tries to stops him which leads to a fight and Taffy runs away from the owner of the mansion – Mrs Muchmore who called him a fleabag raccoon. Scraggs soon discovers there’s another order of luxury food arriving and is so desperate to get into the mansion, he finds a bowtie collar with the word “Taffy” on it, which ironically came from the box of Taffy candy Bentley was rewarded because Mrs Muchmore thought he scared Scraggs away.
Taffy tries to get into mansion one more time and the plan worked, Mrs Muchmore thought it was a cat and not a raccoon, however Bentley can see though his (not so) clever disguise and from that point onwards, a Tom and Jerry slapstick style rivalry between Taffy and Bentley forms and Bentley will stop at nothing to expose Taffy for who he really is. The sooner Bentley gets rid of Taffy, the sooner he can go back to enjoying a quiet life of luxury.
Taffy is animated by French studio – Cyber Group Studios and is co-produced by Boomerang’s owners – Turner EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). Taffy was first premiered at the MIPCOM 2018 media convention in Cannes, France on 15th October and made its world television premiere on Cartoon Network Africa on 17th December.
On the Boomerang UK website, there’s a digital exclusive clip from the new show called “Hungry”, a new match-up game based on the new show and also a colouring-in activity featuring Taffy. New episodes of Taffy will air weekdays at 4.30pm from Monday 7th January.
