The ACTF Swings Into Action With Three New Series At MIP JR And MIPCOM
The ACTF will be launching three exciting new series at MIP Junior and MIPCOM next month including the delightful animated pre-school series Balloon Barnyard. The 26 x 7 minute series follows the adventures of Pip and Streak, a pair of everyday donkeys with superhero ambitions who will do anything to help out their farmyard friends.
