Elliott from Earth is a British-American science fiction comedy animated television series created by Guillaume Cassuto for Cartoon Network. Announced in 2018, from the team behind CN EMEA’s multi-award-winning global hit The Amazing World of Gumball, it would roll out globally, starting with premieres in the U.K. and Africa on March 6, 2021. It premiered on March 6, 2021 in the UK with an hour-long first episode and premiered on March 29, 2021 in the United States.
Elliott from Earth is an animated sci-fi comedy about a boy and his mom who find themselves suddenly transported somewhere across the universe surrounded by an amazing array of aliens from new and unknown corners of the galaxy. While trying to work out who brought them there and why, they make a new home for themselves and encounter new friends, including Mo, the only other being from Earth – a talking stegosaurus.
- Elliott (voiced by Samuel Faraci)
- Having grown up moving from place to place on Earth, he finally finds himself at home in space, on a floating city called the Centrium populated by strange aliens from every corner of the universe. Friendly, enthusiastic and always willing to try something new, Elliott often rushes into things without fully thinking them through. This means he frequently ends up in very strange situations like trying to care for a tentacled creature that won’t stop growing!
- Mo (voiced by Noah Bentley)
- Mo doesn’t know how he got to biosphere 1138, but soon gets some help from his new friends Elliott and Frankie! Before meeting Elliott and Frankie, he mostly smelled his way around, but with his new friends (and new pair of glasses), his world is about to get a whole lot bigger! Mo is sweet and a little shy but can’t hide his amazement at the diverse range of aliens he meets and loses no time in trying to get to know them all!
- Frankie (voiced by Naomi McDonald)
- It’s unlike anything she’s ever seen before as a geologist. The fact that no one believes her theory that the rock is of alien origin, just strengthens her resolve to search for more evidence all over the country, in the hope of finding answers. Frankie’s logical, scientific approach to things doesn’t mean she never acts impulsively and her love for Elliott means they’ll travel to the ends of the earth together, or further.
- Lord Kallous The Merciless (voiced by Stephen Greif)
- Lord Kallous the Merciless, or ‘Mr. K’ to his students, has put his past as an intergalactic tyrant behind him. After the destruction of his home world (it was only partially his fault), his new life on the Centrium means he often finds himself struggling with an enemy far greater than anything he has faced before: school kids and middle management!
- Nara (voiced by Mandeep Dhillon)
- Hive Director (voiced by Angelina Ispani)
- 105E (voiced by Diane Morgan)
- Earmouse (voiced by Tony Hull)
- Invisibill (Voiced by Ashton Frank)
- Kane (voiced by Rich Hall)
- Gym (voiced by Jessie Lawrence)
- Mrs. Argolis (voiced by Teresa Gallagher, Naomi McDonald and Jess McDonald)
