BOULDER, CO. – Mighty Fudge Studios recently completed animating their first iPad app for children, “Under the Bed” which is now available for download in the iTunes store for $2.99. The interactive app targeted to 5-12 year olds is based off of the award winning short film, “Under the Bed,” which stars the vocal talents of Maggie \”Maude Flanders\” Roswell (The Simpsons) and Hal \”The Predator\” Rayle. The “Under the Bed” short film has already taken home two awards; “Best Achievement in Humor” from the 2011 Animazing Spotlight in Burbank and “Best Animation” at the Detroit Windsor International Film Festival.
This is the studio\’s first foray into the wild world of Apps. \”We feel our content is perfect for the medium,\” said studio chief Patrick Mallek, \”Our extensive background in Saturday Morning style cartoons mixed with interactive online gaming made it an easy transition. This is finally a chance to bring our proprietary creative to the public without the B.S. of L.A. Apps and iPads are going to do to TV, Movies and Games what MP3s did to the music industry.
Mighty Fudge Studios plans to release several more Apps in 2012. Some based on existing creative properties and a few brand new ideas. “We see this as the next five years. We integrated iPads into our workflow last summer. All the storyboards for Under the Bed were done on an iPad, so it\’s only fitting that this was our first App.\”
“Under the Bed” was written and directed by Patrick Mallek and produced by Kimberly Mallek of Mighty Fudge Studios. “When you\’re young, there\’s a fine line between fantasy and reality, especially at bedtime on a dark and stormy night. For these three kids, with the willing help of some wily parents, that line is about to get very fuzzy.”
