China enters into cartoon biz.

A new cartoon channel is broadcasting in Shanghai from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight. The net, aimed at people of all ages, is part of an effort set forth by China to improve its cartoon production, something often associated with its neighbor, Japan. The programs featured will be domestically produced and many will debut on the channel. Six media groups in Shanghai have invested a total of 150 million yuan (U.S.$18 million) into the new station.

In Shanghai, about a dozen cartoon societies have emerged in universities, and students at Shanghai Jiaotong University are offered a course in cartoon making. New cartoon channels were recently launched in the Beijing and Hunan provinces as well.
