If you grew up in the 2000s in Malaysia, you’d definitely be familiar with the comic book series titled Lawak Kampus, birthed from the imagination of Keith Chong.
Their iconic comedic characters like Vaness, Froggy, Aditas and Bepop will forever be a part of our childhood and soon, it’ll be a part of our adulthood with a brand new animated TV series!
According to a joint announcement earlier today, local studio Lil Critter Workshop will be responsible for bringing the comic series to life.
The upcoming Lawak Kampus animated TV series will be a Malaysian-made production but, it will be developed to cater to audiences throughout the Asia Pacific region especially kids and families.
“The series aims to explore the themes of relationships, inclusion, self-acceptance during one’s school years,” it wrote.

The announcement also revealed that each episode within the series will be 10 minutes long although there was no mention of an estimated release date as well as the broadcaster.
Since the comic’s inception in 2003, Lawak Kampus has sold over 6.5 million copies in Malaysia alone and has readers from across the Southeast Asian region in Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and China.
Back in 2017, Lil Critter Workshop made it into the limelight by being the first homegrown production company to be featured in Netflix through its creation, Hogie The Globetrotter.
Although the series won’t be the Malaysian equivalent to Adult-swim, Lawak Kampus seems to be in good hands and we can’t wait to see how this goes!
