The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-American animated comedy television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network. Since its debut on May 3, 2011,[1] 76 episodes of the series have been broadcast; its second season premiered on August 7, 2012. The Amazing World of Gumball revolves around the life of a 12-year-old cat named Gumball Watterson (Logan Grove, seasons 1–2; Jacob Hopkins, season 3 onward) and his frequent shenanigans in the fictional American city of Elmore. Throughout the series, he interacts with characters such as his adoptive brother and best friend Darwin (Kwesi Boakye, season 1-2; Terrell Ransom, Jr., season 3 onward), sister Anais (Kyla Rae Kowalewski), and parents Nicole and Richard (Teresa Gallagher and Dan Russell).

Bocquelet conceived The Amazing World of Gumball in 2007 while working as a development artist for Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe.[2][3] Having been asked by the network to pitch an idea for a new series, he took sketches of several unused characters he had created for commercials and started developing a concept for a new series based on them.[4] As Cartoon Network was heavily interested in "family shows and school shows" at the time, Bocquelet decided to make The Amazing World of Gumball a combination of both.[3][4] He pitched the series to Daniel Lennard, vice president of Original Series and Development at Turner Broadcasting, who was impressed by the series' premise and ultimately greenlit its production.[5] The first series to be greenlit by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe,[6] The Amazing World of Gumball premiered on May 3, 2011 with the episode "The DVD", which was watched by 2.120 million viewers in the United States.[7]
