Crazy Frog (lost planned film and series of shorts based on ringtone character; 2007-2008)
The Crazy Frog Movie was a planned film based on the popular ringtone character Crazy Frog, also known as The Annoying Thing. It was to be released in late 2008 but was dropped sometime in 2007 or 2008. Alongside the film's production, 52 one-minute shorts were planned to be released via the internet and television to promote the film. The animation might have been done by Swedish animation company Kaktus Film, who also animated the Crazy Frog music videos from 2005 to 2009.
The only evidence of its existence is a small paragraph from the article "Cartoon Movie 2007: Sneak Peeks European Animated Features" published by Bob Swain on March 14th, 2007. It was also mentioned in a 2005 Adland article. In August 2005, within a forum thread of the best movie in the year so far, a user named Erwin mentions they'd love to see a Crazy Frog movie. In their profile, they have a HotMail address in their "About Section".
There is no known information on the plot or who the cast is, and no concept art is known to exist.
