Pukeko Pictures’ Kiddets Sold to Australia’s ABC and NZ’s TVNZ
Pukeko Pictures has confirmed the sale of Kiddets, its sister series to hit animated preschool show ,The WotWots, to Australia’s ABC and New Zealand’s TVNZ.
Slated to air on both broadcasters later this year, Kiddets expands upon The WotWots franchise with 52 x 11 brand new adventures and sees the introduction of five new WotWot characters, Patches, Dapper, Bounce, Stripes and Luna – young space cadets in training at a play school space academy on planet WotWot. Under the watchful eye of SpottyWot and DottyWot who are based on planet Earth, Patches, Dapper, Bounce, Stripes and Luna learn all the skills they need to embark on a mission to a new world.
Aimed at new and existing fans of The WotWots, Kiddets will enjoy a broader audience appeal including older preschool children with each episode demonstrating the positive values of teamwork and the building blocks of true and enduring friendship.
The series is co-produced by Pukeko Pictures and Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company and is the first official children’s television co-production between New Zealand and China. Kiddets has been created by The WotWots’ Creator, Martin Baynton and will be Executive Produced by Richard Taylor.
The series is distributed by CAKE, handling worldwide distribution rights excluding Australia, New Zealand and Greater China. The recently announced agreement extends to North American and European rights (for series 2) of the original Pukeko Pictures show The WotWots, a global hit series that has aired in over a hundred countries and which included an extensive licensing programme.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the next instalment of The WotWots in the form of Kiddets to Australian and New Zealand audiences. Both ABC KIDS and TVNZ have been great supporters of The WotWots brand and it has performed well for both so we look forward to Kiddets enjoying the same success. We are incredibly fortunate to work with our international partners Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company and CAKE on the series and can’t wait to see little ones enjoying the adventures of Patches, Dapper, Bounce, Stripes and Luna,” said Creator, Martin Baynton.
