Animaccord & Herotainment Align for Smighties


Animaccord has partnered with Herotainment to coordinate the media activity for the children’s animated series Smighties across traditional and new-media platforms.

Through the agreement, Animaccord has acquired the exclusive media rights to distribute 39 episodes of Smighties in Russia, CIS, Eastern Europe and Turkey. The company will also coordinate the official Smighties channels on YouTube in Russian, Ukrainian, Arabic and Turkish. The U.S.-produced series aimed at kids ages 4 to 7 follows the fantastical adventures of the small and mighty heroes from a magical land.
