The Knock Knock App for iOS lets users interact with a wide variety of characters through a series of voice-activated knock knock jokes, featuring fully animated punch lines. The app is perfect for road trips, family vacations, and even for lazy afternoons as children will love interacting with the cute cartoon characters that respond to their voices.
Dan Lund’s past credits include classic Disney features such as Aladdin, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Winnie the Pooh, and Princess and the Frog. Lund will also be part of the upcoming feature Frozen. Lund admits that his inspiration for the Knock Knock app originated from a Christmas visit with his niece and nephew, who kept him busy with jokes for the entire trip. Lund realized that they we able to tell jokes for hours on end since it’s some sort of rite of passage that every kid experiences. He then set out to celebrate this milestone in the growing up process by creating the best iOS app he can dream off.
Each set of jokes is hosted by the character “Knock Knock” and his friends, the Who’s There Doors. The app contains 60 interactive jokes that are fully animated and voiced by top artists from the world of family entertainment.
“I treated this app idea the way any Disney film is treated,” says Lund. “We are creating a world that folks want to be part of with characters that are taken to heart and enjoyed over and over again”.
