Dutch illustrator Fiep Westendorp and writer Mies Bouhuys created the adventures of the cats Pim and Pom for the Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool in 1957. In 2008 director Gioia Smid started with the production of a 2D animated childeren’s TV series called ‘The Adventures of Pim & Pom’, based on the illustrations and characters by Fiep Westendorp and Mies Bouhuys. The artwork for the animation series remained as true to the original drawings as possible. The TV series became an instant success, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Smid and a team of animators are working on a feature film about Pim and Pom, that will be premiered in Dutch cinemas in 2014.
