KYIV, Ukraine, February 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today a US based animation company Mupotoon LLC announced the release of the first ever animated series for iPhone, which will bring the iPhone users a hilarious, sidesplitting tongue-in-cheek look at the world's biggest political news of the day. It's a short animated spoof on global leaders and events shown through the mix of music, politics and cartoons.
The first episode of Mupotoon, now available to iPhone users through iTunes Store, is dedicated to the controversy surrounding the list of tax-evading celebrities, handed over recently to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange by a former Swiss banker Rudolf Elmer. According to Mr. Elmer, whom the British newspaper the Guardian called the "most important and boldest whistle-blower in Swiss banking history, the list contains offshore account details of 2000 prominent people.
In the released episode Julian Assange releases the names of the famous tax-evading celebrities and dignitaries and puts Vladimir Putin, Silvio Berlusconi and Nicola Sarcozy on the verge of a mental breakdown.
"Any political news, no matter how serious, can, and I believe should be looked at from a humorous perspective", said Mupotoon LLC's Creative Director Yuriy Sak. "Mupotoon is a combination of music, politics and cartoons".
In 2009 Mupotoon LLC released its pilot animated film "Barack Obama. The Secret of Nobel Peace Prize" which premiered in Oslo, Norway, on the day when the US President and the main character of the cartoon Barack Obama received a much debated Nobel Prize for Peace. The cartoon, which humorously dispelled the myths surrounding the unexpected decision of the Nobel Prize Committee, was warmly received by the international press and European viewers.
"The main idea behind our latest brainchild - the animated political comedy on iPhone platform - is to deliver to iPhone users the most important news in the most entertaining format", said the applications' producer Gennadiy Kurochka. "We hope that our animated satirical take on the events that shape the world today will be popular due to Mupotoons' subtle and at the same time provocative sense of humour".
