The Cartoon Surprises also includes an exclusive exhibition which highlights a wide variety of collector edition comic books. The World of Cartoons Exhibition offers current issues of Loony Tunes, Marvel, 2000 AD and Tin Tin. It also features publications going back 20 years which will be of interest to fans of all ages. The exhibition also explores the development of cartoon and the history of comic books. Guides will be available to take children on tour.

In addition, the Cartoon Interactive Workshop has introduced the basic elements of cartoon drawing and figure drawing with materials used by professional cartoonists. Children and other participants are able to learn how to develop story lines. Competitions are also held daily. Participants are judged on their creativity rather than their technique and could win exciting Modhesh boxes filled with great prizes.

Salem Al Ghurair, CEO of Al Ghurair City, said, “Al Ghurair City is proud to introduce the Cartoon Surprises to visitors during DSS 2007. The event will introduce the history of all time favourite cartoon characters and will give children the opportunity to be creative. We are confident the Cartoon Surprises will prove to be popular with children and adults alike.”
