The Amazing World of Gumball is an IrishBritish-American animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network. It was produced by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe. It first aired on May 3, 2011.[2]

The series is about the life of Gumball Watterson, a 13-year-old cat who graduates middle (junior high) school he hates because everyone's too crazy here and attends new school (senior high school) in the fictional city of Elmore. Along with his adoptive goldfish brother and best friend Darwin, he always finds himself in trouble around the city, during which he interacts with his other family members—sister Anais and parents Nicole and Richard—and an extended supporting cast of characters.

He pitched The Amazing World of Gumball to the network and Turner Broadcasting executive Daniel Lennard subsequently greenlit production of the series. It is the first series to be produced by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe, and is currently co-produced with Studio SOI and Great Marlborough Productions.

On June 2, 2014, Cartoon Network announced that they'd picked up the series for an additional fourth and fifth season.[3]
