The Weird World of Nox and Harper



Local animation boutique, Toon53, released this pilot yesterday for their animated series, “The Weird World of Nox and Harper.” The cartoon sees Dr Mixum’s creations – a gang of friendly, trans-specied animals – take on a mean-spirited zoo keeper.


Here’s the synopsis:


How long is an ostrich-giraffe’s neck? Are wolf-sheep vegetarian? Why did the chicken-gorilla cross the road? If your answer to all of these questions is SAY WHAAAT!? It’s obviously your first visit to The Weird World of Nox ‘n Harper. Join Nox, a cheery tortoise-fox, and Harper, a neurotic Deer-squirrel as they take you into Dr Mixum’s Zoo – a place where anything is possible, adventure lurks in every cage and feeding the croco-sharks is strictly forbidden. From yodeling elephant-goats to a moose-owl psychologist, walking the plank to Wild West showdowns, there’s enough crazy adventure to keep you coming back again and again.
