The agreement, which includes the two companies investing between $10 million and $15 million to create the videos, is part of a larger plan by YouTube to bring more professional content to the site.
The storyline of Where’s My Water is told in a text-free series of images in the game. Basically, an alligator named Swampy wants to take a shower, but other alligators, including one named Cranky, want to stop him. It would seem that they’ll have to expand the universe of the game to turn that concept into a cartoon, but if anyone can pull that off, it’s Disney.
The companies haven’t announced when the videos will debut, but we’re looking forward to seeing what becomes of Swampy and co. Will Where’s My Water become as big a hit as Angry Birds?
