Our partners in this project have a fantastic record of creating and producing quality and award-winning programs that appeal to an international audience, so it was a natural step for us to join forces on such an endearing project.”

Chang Hwan Shin, CEO of Studio Gale, commented, “Tish Tash will introduce a fantastic and entertaining world through children’s imagination in everyday life which can only be expressed in animation. As one of the best creative studios’ in Korea, I am excited to collaborate with August Media, Synergy88 and Karrot Entertainment and guarantee that Tish Tash will fascinate children all over the world!”
