Paris: Emmy Award-winning French animation production and distribution company Dandelooo has struck a deal with French animation production company JPL Films and cinema & video production company Videolotion, based in Portugal for the new preschool series Cubs (26 x 2’).
The deal gives Dandelooo exclusive worldwide distribution rights for the new original collection of non-dialogue, animated episodes for preschoolers about how baby animals go to sleep in their own very special way.
Co-produced by JPL Films and Videolotion each episode directed by a different creator and with its own animation look and technique tells the bedtime story of some of the most adorable and mysterious species in the animal world, from elephants, hedgehogs to flamingoes, whales, snakes, and bees. Each episode reveals the renewed pleasure of discovering a new species in a different and original aesthetic.
Joint founders of Dandelooo, Jean Baptiste Wéry and Emmanuèle Petry commented, “We are delighted to pick up a show such as Cubs and look forward to introducing it to buyers on the international market. The wonderful topic of how baby animals go to sleep and the fact that different creators are using their own animation technique will stand out and will be enjoyed by pre-schoolers everywhere.”
