Quibi has given the green light to Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland’s clay-based stop-motion animation series Gloop World. Creators Roiland, John Harvatine IV (Crossing Swords) and Eric Towner (Buddy Thunderstruck) team up with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios executive producers Seth Green, Harvatine, Matthew Senreich, Towner and Chris Waters on this zany project. The unique series follows the lives of anthropomorphic blobs Bob Roundy and Funzy. The two live as roommates in a fictional universe called Gloop World. Viewers will join Bob Roundy and Funzy navigating Gloop World while realizing they’re not so different from these abnormal blob creatures after all.
Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is a production studio that brings some of Hollywood’s most talented animation and live-action artists together. Stoopid Buddy has produced television hits like the Emmy Award-winning Robot Chicken and Emmy Award-nominated SuperMansion with Bryan Cranston. Along with Gloop World, Stoopid Buddy’s most recent project is Hulu’s Crossing Swords. The series is currently in production and set to air in 2020.
Quibi announced that it will buy Gloop World this week. Roiland has experience creating other obscure projects like Rick and Morty, The Most Extraordinary Space Investigations and 2 Girls, 1 Cup: The Show. He also currently has many balls in the air with Ricky and Morty recently releasing season 4, Solar Opposites in pre-production and now Gloop World freshly greenlit. However, Roiland has expressed that Gloop World is his dream project and has been yearning to create it for the past seven years.
“Gloop World has been a dream of mine to make for almost seven years. A tactile clay animation show with a mysterious, weird, and expansive world and really fun characters, fingerprints and all. I couldn’t have done this without the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios who understood exactly what I meant when I wanted the clay animation to have an imperfect approach, where you can see the animators in the work. I want the Gloop characters to feel like you can reach into your phone and grab them yourself. Can’t wait to share this weird silly show with the world!”
Gloop World has potential to be the next hit animated comedy. If Gloop World is anything like Rick and Morty, viewers can look forward to a fascinating universe that bends the confines of the imagination along with an accurate and in-depth study of relationships. Gloop World has found the right home with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and Quibi, where it can go its full distance of zaniness without being held back by a more traditional network.
Although Quibi has a very innovative premise, is it enough to stand out among the several other streaming platforms being released in 2020. NBC’s streaming service Peacock is also set to launch in April 2020 followed by HBO Max in May 2020. Only time will tell if its mobile-friendly edge will place it ahead of the rest.
