Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Naomi Iwata, the half-hour 3-D CGI animated series Pecola boasted a production design that Pablo Picasso might have envied. The title character was a lovable little penguin who lived in Cube City, where everything was on the square -- literally, since everyone had square heads and square bodies, living in square houses on square streets beneath a square sky. Despite this seeming conformity, Pecola waddled to a different beat from his animal friends, and therein lay the series' hilarity. A Cinar release, Pecola made its U.S. debut over the Cartoon Network on May 6, 2003.
