Aliens Love Underpants AND… Set for Disney Junior in U.S.


Endemol Shine Group has licensed the short-form series Aliens Love Underpants AND… to Disney Junior in the U.S. for its linear channels and the DisneyNOW app.

Aliens Love Underpants AND… is based on the award-winning book series of the same name. The 12×2-minute shorts feature five alien heroes who sing and dance to silly songs. It is available on the DisneyNOW app and will subsequently air on Disney Junior linear channels in the U.S.

The series, originally commissioned by Sky Kids in the U.K. and Ireland, is distributed by Endemol Shine International, with licensing through Endemol Shine Group. It is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions.

The short-form series is available on-demand on all Sky Kids VOD platforms and the Now TV Kids Pass. In addition, Sky commissioned an Aliens Love Underpants AND… game that is available to Sky customers via the Sky Kids app. The game, called Aliens Love Underpants AND the Space Catapult, is produced by digital agency Jollywise, which worked with Sky and Tiger Aspect Productions on the product.

Tom Beattie, Tiger Aspect’s head of kids and animation, said, “I’m so pleased that our underpants-loving aliens are heading to the U.S., and Disney Junior is the perfect home. The mobile game is great fun and the kids will love engaging with the characters.”
