MIAM! distribution Brings Yeti Tales Season Six to Market


MIAM! distribution has begun sales for season six of Yeti Tales, which is slated to bow on France Télévisions on April 12.

The new season of the preschool puppet series, produced by Darjeeling and Moving Puppet, has already been picked up by RTS, BEIN and TV5 Unis. It will continue to follow the little mice Nina and Leon as they live inside a local bookshop and are joined by Yetili, the plush mascot of the store.

The new season includes books such as Stephanie Blake’s I Don’t Want to Go to the Pool, Joe Todd-Stanton’s The Comet and Gabrielle Vincent’s Ernest and Celestine.

Yeti Tales was created and written by Séverine Lebrun of Darjeeling. It is directed by Emeric Montagnese, Antoine Colomb, Martin Day, Anne Pejean, Noam Roubah and Dalila Hamdad.

Now, Yeti Tales features a total of 280 8-minute episodes, along with a miniseries of 40 short episodes and two special episodes of 26 minutes each.

“For this new season, as for previous ones, we’ve organized readings in classrooms”, noted Lebrun. “We wanted to closely mirror the reactions and emotions of children to transcribe them into Nina and Leon’s dialogues. This is why these episodes are so authentic and relatable.”

“We are delighted to bring the latest adventures of Yeti Tales to our audience,” said Mélanie Errea, head of sales and acquisitions at MIAM! distribution. The series not only sparks a love for reading among children but also demonstrates that reading can be a fun and enjoyable activity shared with the whole family. With its engaging storytelling and relatable characters, the series creates a special rendezvous, bringing families together in the joy of reading books. Yeti Tales rights are now available for licensing and distribution, offering broadcasters and streaming platforms the opportunity to offer to their audience a full package.”
