loopers

Synopsis

Loopers Hammies are a group of super-fast hamsters who perform awesome looping tricks. The Loopers compete in exciting and challenging circuit races in order to win the prized Super Cheese. However, they won’t have it easy: in addition to overcoming the obstacles on the tracks, they will have to dodge the attacks of Dante, a ruthless cat who will do everything he can to hinder them in their races by setting traps of all kinds.

Did you know that…

When designing Dante’s traps, the team was inspired by the adventures of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, the protagonists of the legendary Warner Brothers TV series, which premiered in 1949.

Loopers Hammies

Speedy, Brave, Ginger, Smarty, Trixie, Turbo and Cookie. They are the Loopers Hammies, a group of hamsters who enjoy running on amazing tracks. They run in all directions, go up and down, and even loop upside down!

Dante

The baddest bad guy. Dante is a ruthless cat who keeps setting traps and obstacles all over the track. In each episode, his inventions to catch the Loopers Hammies are the most clever… even if they never quite work.
