The Mothers concept was developed for Molinos at Madre, the Buenos Aires arm of Mother London.

Madre had the task of rebooting the Mamá Lucchetti brand, shaking the advertising out of its mostly conservative reputation. The creative team came up with the concept of cute-looking characters acting out bizarre scripts that most kids and their family members could relate to, tied together by the Mahna Mahna song made famous by Sesame Street and The Muppets.

Animation was developed at PepperMelon, Buenos Aires, by executive producer Fernando Sarmiento, character designers and art directors Tomas García and Juan Molinet, project manager/senior animator Martin Dasnoy, animator Leandro Feuz, backgrounds, lighting and rendering by Guillermo Kelly, technical effects director and animator Ignacio Godoy (3D modeling and character rigging), editor J. F. Mackeprang, assistants Diego Rozek, Leandro Muchenik, ad Diego Collell (3D modeling, rigging and animation), compositor Fernando Sarmiento, production assistant Lucía Ferrari, sound designer Andrés Cáceres.

Mahna Mahna

“Mahna Mahna”, originally titled “Mah-Na Mah-Na,” was written by Italian composer Piero Umiliani for an Italian documentary about life in Sweden, titled Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso. It entered popular culture via a puppet skit on Sesame Street and the Ed Sullivan Show in 1969, followed up by appearances by Mahna Mahna and the Snowths (Do doo do doo doo) in 1977.
