CAKE, Triggerfish Team Up for New Superhero Toon: Mama K’s Super 4


Kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE has recently teamed up with South African studio Triggerfish Animation Studios, in order to produce a new superhero action comedy series titled Mama K’s Super 4. This new series is targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11 years old, but given the near universal appeal of superheroes, might find an audience even among those who are older.

The story of Mama K’s Super 4 is set in Lusaka, where four teenage girls are recruited by the former secret agent known under the code name Mama K, in order to help protect the world from various evils. The four heroines of the series will be spending episodes fighting rich and powerful opponents, despite having limited resources of their own. As such, the show will impart lessons about being smart and resourceful, and will also show the importance of fulfilling responsibilities such as homework.

Created by Zambian writer Malenga Mulendema, Mama K’s Super 4 pays comic homage to the superhero genre and draws visual inspiration from retro ’90s R ’n’ B and Hip Hop girl groups.

CEO & Creative Director, Tom van Waveren from CAKE said, “We have been admiring Triggerfish’s work for some time now and are delighted to have been invited to join Mama K’s Super 4, a unique and entertaining project, which brings a fresh look and approach to a classic action cartoon format.”

“Mama K’s Super 4 stood out among hundreds of TV shows that we reviewed during a continent-wide call for animated projects,” says Triggerfish’s Anthony Silverston. “In her pitch, Malenga said that, growing up, she’d never seen herself reflected on screen in an animated show, and with CAKE, we’re glad to have found a bold partner who has embraced her vision for a show centered on four innovative African girls.”
