About

Abo & Karo: The Mini-Movie!

In a world...where being famous is king!

One lone squire will go on an epic adventure to become the world's greatest viral video hero! He will stand against the forces of his family: The pessimistic brother, the cheapskate father and the overbearing mother! Though his journey will be one filled with perils!

He will triumph and in the end...you will believe in Abo's Dream!

What's What...

Abo & Karo is an animated web series created by Hayk Manukyan about an Armenian family living in America! Think Kardashians minus...the naughty tape, reality show, fame, model contracts, basketball husbands, fortune, Kanye West, crazy weddings, too many siblings to count on one hand, big butts, and a transgender Olympic gold medal winner parent and you have Abo & Karo's family!

How it all started...

In 2007, Hayk Manukyan started animating shorts about two Armenian brothers, Abo and Karo and their family. Over the course of eight years he has created 50+ shorts, gained nearly 15,000 subscribers, and 8 million+ video views for his YouTube Channel. Now, it's time to take things to the NEXT level!

We want to make these two brothers, Abo & Karo, more famous than pita bread and hummus and to do that...WE NEED YOU!

Our goal of $75,000 will allow us to make an 11 minute mini-movie and release it on August 1st, 2016...FREE FOR EVERYONE!

Did you say free for everyone?

Yes we did, because we want everyone to enjoy what we love doing...making funny cartoons about this wonderful family.

However, we also want to give our Backers something more then just a free movie. We have created our incentives around the idea of celebrating their support with recognition, exclusives, and personalized rewards so we hope you like 'em!

Meet the stars of our series...

Abo - the lovable, simple, jobless, Facebook obsessed brother with a dog named Smeagol.

Risks and challenges

Hayk Manukyan has created 50+ Abo & Karo shorts over the span of 8 years - whoohoo! There is little, to no risk, this mini-movie will get made if the funding goal is reached. Hayk Manukyan has partnered with Shawn Toshikian, who has 15 years experience as an Animation Supervisor on such shows as Cartoon Network's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and HBO's Ricky Gervais Show and Brent Tanner, who is currently the Producer for Cartoon Network's online series Mighty Magiswords. At this budget level, Backers should feel confident we will hit our estimated release date for the mini-movie on August 1st, 2016. All rewards will be honored on or before the release of the mini-movie.
