In anticipation of the debut of Corner Gas Animated and the launch of the Dog River Walking Tour in Rouleau, SK, Comedy has released a first look at some of Dog River’s most iconic locales, re-imagined. From Emma and Oscar’s house, to Foo Mart and Dog River Hotel, fans can catch a sneak peek of their favourite fictional town… animated!
The 13-episode, half-hour animated version of the acclaimed, smash-hit comedy franchise Corner Gas from 335 Productions and Vérité Films is set to premiere on Comedy in 2018.
Brent (Brent Butt), Lacey (Gabrielle Miller), Oscar (Eric Peterson), Hank (Fred Ewanuick), Davis (Lorne Cardinal), Karen (Tara Spencer-Nairn), Wanda (Nancy Robertson), and Emma (Corrine Koslo) are all getting a cartoon makeover as the main cast returns to Dog River for Corner Gas.
Corner Gas ran for six seasons and was the winner of nine Canadian Comedy Awards and six Gemini Awards. Slated to debut on The Comedy Network in the 2017-18 season, the new animated series will feature all of the original cast voicing their original characters, except for Janet Wright who died in 2016.
