Vietnamese comic brand Tho Bay Mau (Seven-Colored Rabbit) has successfully raised VND1.3 billion (US$54,800) for the production of its animated series.
Tho Bay Mau on Tuesday reached its crowdfunding goal for the Con Tho (The Rabbit) animated series project.
The project has so far received more than VND1.3 billion ($54,800), exceeding its original target of VND1.2 billion ($50,600), while there is still one day left before the fundraising period ends.
The proceeds will be used to finance the production of the first three episodes of the Con Tho animated series.
The series is expected to have 10 episodes lasting a total of 120 minutes.
This is the first time in Vietnam that a cartoon has been successfully crowdfunded.
Tho Bay Mau was founded in 2014 as a funny comic brand.
In 2021, Tho Bay Mau released its YouTube channel to reach a wider audience.
Some of the episodes on YouTube garnered up to tens of millions of views, while the channel currently has more than 1.6 million subscribers.

“We have always dreamed of creating a Vietnamese animated series, but the cost to produce a single episode is very high, let alone an entire series,” the production team of Tho Bay Mau stated.
“The successful fundraising campaign proved that the Vietnamese audience has faith in Tho Bay Mau and the people behind it.”
The animation production will be undertaken by Sun Wolf Animation Studio.
