Legend of the Aubergines
Legend of the Aubergines is a series of 5 x 30 second animated shorts and paired ringtones/videotones. The Aubergines are in search of a long lost magical property that will put an end to their dispute with the opposing banana clan. They scour the world looking for it and everywhere they go they learn the appropriate ethnic dance to blend in with the locals… currently appearing in a Hawaiian style tropical island, the Australian outback, the Scottish Highlands, and in a hip-hop video. The musical style of each animation matches the scene setting. 3 episodes of The Aubergines were selected by Children’s BBC for their MyToons web site. One of the episodes was broadcast on CBBC in October 2010.
