Usop Sontorian is Malaysia's first locally-made half-hour-episode animated cartoon series. It aired on TV1 from 1996 to 1998. It was created by Ujang and Kamn Ismail of Kharisma Pictures (now MOY Publications). Currently Kamn Ismail is the managing director of Quest Animations. Ujang, the creator of the Usop Sontorian characters, has been forbidden to draw any cartoon characters similar in likeness to Usop Sontorian, after a failed legal battle to acquire rights to the character.

The Story[edit]

Usop Sontorian tells the story of the village life of Malaysian boy Usop b Mat and his friends Abu, Dol, Ah Kim, Vellu, and Singh. Usop is the third child in his family. He has two elder siblings: a sister, Kak Kiah, and a jobless brother named Abang Budin. The story is set in Kampung Parit Sonto, not far from the town of Ayer Hitam, Johor; hence the name '"Sontorian". The theme of the series was to promote unity and harmonious relationships between all races in Malaysia.
