Going Mad for Madballs

Mar 2, 2017 | Latest |

Do you remember Madballs? Originally introduced in 1986 by AmToy, a subsidiary of American Greetings, Madballs was an instant hit and quickly expanded into other product categories including comics, home video and video games.

We were thrilled to be asked by American Greetings Entertainment to launch their new YouTube channel featuring all-new animated shorts produced by Oddbot Studios, American Greetings and Just Play.  The shorts star the six core characters of Skull Face, Oculus, Screamin’ Meemie, Dust Brain, Horn Head and Slobulus. Additional new content will be produced by WildBrain productions, including live action, stop motion and traditional animation.  The new YouTube channel and content coincides with a launch of new toys at all mass retailers via master toy partner Just Play.  More than 30 new-to-the-world Madballs characters in various styles will be introduced throughout 2017 with the plan that these also become characters within future animated content.

Head to the channel for gross gags, how-tos and sneak peeks of the upcoming additions to the line of Madballs toys, available now at all major retailers.
