The show with the Elephant

TV-series, more than 100 spots

The Elephant and the pink Rabbit delight with their charm: they experience tricky situations or just play tricks. Small animated films for “The show with the Elephant”.

When “The show with the Elephant” went on air in 2007, the little blue Elephant needed a friend and companion. The TrickStudio developed the pink Rabbit for this purpose. Since then, the two have been inseparable. TrickStudio has already produced over 100 spots with the two: from the first idea to the finished film.

The music is composed by the Cologne musician Alex Flucht.

In addition to the short films, TrickStudio is also in charge of the website “The Elephant site”.
