Hoho & Caldera Creations Pact for New Kids’ Series


Hoho Entertainment and Caldera Creations have inked a deal to co-develop a brand-new animated kids’ series, Seal Force 5.

Seal Force 5 tells the classic story of the battle of good versus evil as five arctic seals, mysteriously mutated into humanoid form, assemble as an elite special forces team to prevent a shadowy cabal from destroying the world. The Seal Force 5 team is all that stands between the Earth and catastrophe.

Originated by Paul and Rob Caldera, the action-packed, character-driven comedy adventures follow the exploits of a set of misfit heroes as they strive to thwart the mendacious meddling of the evil Order of Eden, which threatens to push the world to the edge of ecological collapse.

Oliver Ellis, joint managing director of Hoho Entertainment, said: “We’re thrilled to have sealed our partnership with Caldera Creations for this wonderfully energetic and funny new series. It introduces a whole new set of loveable heroes that we are sure will capture the hearts and imagination of young viewers all around the world.”

Paul Caldera of Caldera Creations said: “We were looking for an animal that is both adorable and funny yet also fit for action, but isn’t already a pop culture icon—and seals were the perfect choice. From there, the idea of using Seals as Navy SEALs seemed like a ready-made match for the action/comedy animation genre—and we’re delighted to have found another great match in Hoho to help us bring our ideas to fruition.”
