SUMMER CAMP ISLAND

by JULIA POTT

Hornet director Julia Pott created the Summer Camp Island series for Cartoon Network. The first season aired on July 7, 2018. Since then, it's been awarded two additional seasons. Set in a world of anthropomorphic animals, Summer Camp Island follows two childhood best friends Oscar Peltzer (an elephant) and Hedgehog (you guessed it, a hedgehog) who are dropped off at a magical summer camp where bizarre occurrences and supernatural characters coexist: camp counselors who are popular girl witches, horses that transform into unicorns, talking sharks, yetis, haunted cabins, post-it notes that lead to other dimensions, and nosey monsters that live under the bed. Be sure to check out the opening sequence of this charming, heartwarming, hilarious, and utterly original series.
