Gloop World is a clay-based stop-motion series that chronicles the absurd but strangely related life of anthropomorphic bubbles, roommates Bob Roundy and Funzy. Follow the couple as they navigate a malleable, clay-covered suburb on the outskirts of Gloop World.
"Gloop World has been a dream of mine for almost seven years," said Roiland. “A tactile clay animation show with a mysterious, strange and expansive world and fun characters, fingerprints and all. I couldn't have done it without the folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios who understood exactly what I meant when I wanted clay animation to take a flawed approach where you can see animators at work. I want Gloop characters to feel that you can access your phone and pick them up yourself. Can't wait to share this weird silly show with the world! "
"Since I first saw Gumby, I've been fascinated with clay as a medium," added Harvatine. "Gloop World is funny and innovative, and Kibi is the perfect home for this show."
Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, Seth Green, Harvatine, Matthew Senreich, Towner and Chris Waters will be the executive producers of the project.
