Created by Ben Bocquelet and directed by Mic Graves, The Amazing World of Gumball is the first full-length animated series out of Cartoon Network Studio Europe. The series about an amusing Blue cat named Gumball and his best buddy Darwin, a pet goldfish, combines 2D and 3D animation in a live-action setting. Season three of The Amazing World of Gumball is slated to premiere Thursday, June 5 at 6:30 p.m. on Cartoon Network U.S.

This five time BAFTA award-winning series has garnered numerous awards around the world including honors from The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (International Emmy® Awards), Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Market (MIFA) and ASIFA-Hollywood (Annie Awards) and is produced at Cartoon Network's EMEA studio, Great Marlborough Productions, in Shoreditch, London.

The Amazing World of Gumball tells the story of an extra-ordinary suburban family who just happen to live in an ordinary town.
