Monster Ramps Up MIPTV Slate


Monster Entertainment has new animated series on offer, including Storybud, an RTÉ commission from Dublin’s Kite Entertainment.

Storybud recently won the RTS Award for best children’s program. The 15×5-minute series of comedic short stories is based on well-loved fairytales and nursery rhymes for kids aged 8 and over.

Ollie, from Belgium’s Lunanime, Ireland’s Ink and Light and Norway’s Storyline, is a 52×4-minute non-verbal show for preschoolers. In the middle of a busy city, in a peaceful forgotten park, you will find Ollie and his friends: a small owl, little stork, young frog and five tiny birds who experience small stories about big issues like discovery, friendship, being alone and the importance of the little things in life.

From Denmark’s Toolbox Film, Tiny Toot is a 26×7-minute show for 2- to 5-year-olds. Tiny Toot is about 3 years old. She lives with her cat Gato, her brother and her mum and dad. And then there’s Pixie, her little magician elf who lives in a mouse hole in the wall. Every morning, Pixie invites Tiny Toot and Gato on a new adventure.

Monster will also be highlighting newly completed series, Fia’s Fairies, from Ireland’s Little Moon; Storytime with Ms B Booksy, from U.S.-based Driver Studios; Zizi and Hannibal, from South Africa’s Pixcomm; The Charlie Shepherd Show, from Brazil’s TV Pingium; Noodle and Bun, from South Africa’s Polycat; and Once Upon My Story, from Canada’s Maki Media.
