Pukeko’s Kiddets Lands on ABC Australia, TVNZ


Pukeko Pictures’ Kiddets, a spin-off of The WotWots, has been sold to ABC in Australia and TVNZ in New Zealand for broadcast later this year.

Kiddets introduces five new characters who are training at a play school space academy on planet WotWot. The 52×11-minute animated show is meant to have a broader audience appeal, including older preschoolers.

Kiddets is co-produced by Pukeko Pictures and Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Company. It is distributed by CAKE outside of Australia, New Zealand and Greater China.

Martin Baynton, creator of The WotWots and Kiddets, stated: “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.”
