The Nation’s iconic statue sees some airtime in the animated world of Cartoon Network
The Merlion makes an appearance at the 1:04 mark
Did you know that We Bare Bears show’s creator Daniel Chong has Singaporean parents?
Neither did we.
Well, it seems his parents’ Singaporean genes run deep as Chong’s show is a big hit in Singapore, indicated by the multiple extravaganzas that were dedicated to these three fuzzy bears.
However, it is from the recent trip to Singapore that inspired the creator to put the mystical statue of the Merlion in the episode of Lil’ Squid.
Set to premiere on National day of 9 August, the episode follows the three baby bear brothers on an adventure as they build a submarine and explore the depths of an aquarium to reunite a lost squid with his family.
“Lil Squid” airs on the Cartoon Network channel via SingTel TV CH226, Starhub TV CH316, as well as on the Cartoon Network Watch and Play app.
