LINCOLN BUTTERFIELD TO OFFER TRIO OF NEW TITLES
AT MIPCOM 2009

When Whinn Situation, Loving Mustard and Big Buff Tuff Dudes
Series Concepts Available for Animation and/or Live Action

Burbank, CA – September 21, 2009 – Building on its catalogue of animated television series concepts, Lincoln Butterfield Animation will unveil three new titles at MIPJUNIOR and MIPCOM 2009. When Whinn Situation, Loving Mustard and Big Buff Tuff Dudes all target kids and ‘tweens, but each has a completely different approach in terms of artwork, storyline and sensibility. Two of these latest series concepts from the independent, Burbank-based studio are also available for live-action production.

Series Concept Highlights:

• When Whinn Situation (Comedy, ‘Tweens) – In this modern-day Freaky Friday, the life of 12-year-old Windsor Whinn turns upside-down after one of his grandpa’s science experiments goes horribly wrong, forcing him to share his body with his two VERY DIFFERENT siblings: 17-year-old super-jock, Simon, and precocious sevenyear-old Stephanie. Which Whinn will win this ultimate identity crisis? Available for animation or live-action production, When Whinn Situation was created by Robert Hughes (Phineas and Ferb) and developed by Mitch Schauer (The Angry Beavers).

• Loving Mustard (Comedy, Kids) – For two sisters who couldn’t be more different, a furry, floppy friend named Mustard provides the only halt to their constant battling—no small feat for an inanimate plush toy. See, while Mustard can speak, only viewers can hear his honest, funny and often sarcastic quips about the girls’ antics. Available for animation or live action production, Loving Mustard was created and developed by Mitch Schauer.

• Big Buff Tuff Dudes (Action-Adventure, ‘Tweens) – Digging a grave for his pet parrot, Christian Santee unearths the secret, subterranean headquarters of four, laser-powered superheroes who enlist him as their control-room cadet to aid in their intergalactic adventures. A truly interactive 24/7 experience, viewers can register online to become cadets and further explore the series’ techno-futuristic world. Available for animation production, Big Buff Tuff Dudes was created and developed by Mitch Schauer.

“Robert Hughes and Mitch Schauer have developed some incredibly fun stuff with these titles—three wildly different stories all with their own unique appeal, and all equally entertaining,” said Joseph Walker, Lincoln Butterfield Co-Founder. “I look forward to sharing these fun, diverse concepts with MIPCOM attendees this October.” When Whinn Situation, Big Buff Tuff Dudes and Loving Mustard join Lincoln Butterfield’s growing catalogue of projects in development, including the ‘tween properties RIP M.D., TAN (distributed by PorchLight Entertainment) and N.I.T.: Neighborhood Investigation Team; and mature titles Venture Probe and When in Rome. Each of the company’s properties offers the potential for multiplatform extensions, such as publishing (comics and children's books), broadband, mobile and feature films.
