Larva was launched by TUBA Entertainment in 2011, with adult viewers in mind. The producers aimed to create a cartoon that could appeal to an audience of a wide age scale. It debuted on the national channel, KBS and on cable television with short, 90-second episodes. The series quickly became popular, and as of September 2015 was sold to more than 40 countries, including Canal Plus in France, as well as merchandising contracts taking place in Taiwan, Germany, Turkey and Chile, among others. The creators earned 1 million dollars in royalties in the first three months of launching related merchandise, including toys and stationery products.
This cartoon shows two larvae as its main characters. There's no dialogue in the show: characters either do not speak, except Chuck, Grace and other human characters.
Red and Yellow, two strange Larva who live underneath a storm drain, encounter many surprises which fall from the outside world to their underground universe. For these two wriggly friends, anything is a good excuse for fun.
See the world from Red and Yellow’s point of view, and experience what a dangerous and exciting place the world can be for such small friends.
