More European & Middle Eastern Sales for Floogals


LONDON: Zodiak Kids has lined up additional sales in the Middle East and Europe for the animated series Floogals and has also appointed a U.S. consumer products agent for the show.

The 52×11-minute series has been picked up by YLE in Finland, Canal Panda in Portugal and MBC in the Middle East. Additionally, Zodiak Kids has named Brand Activation Consulting, led by Bob Traub and Michelle McLaughlin, as the consumer products agent for Floogals in the U.S. Discovery Kids, meanwhile, will represent the consumer products rights for the series in Latin America.

The show, which launched in the U.S. on the preschool channel Sprout last month, has also been sold to Discovery Kids for Latin America, TVO and Knowledge Network in Canada, Hop! in Israel and Spectrum Film in Indonesia. Floogals combines photo-real CGI and live action to bring to life three pocket-sized aliens—Fleeker, Flo and Boomer—who are on a mission to observe the peculiarities of “hooman” life on Earth.

From the mind of Dan Good, creator of the preschool series Wissper, Floogals is developed by Zodiak Kids Studios’s U.K. production company The Foundation, in conjunction with U.K. special-effects studio Jellyfish Pictures and Nevision, which serves as the strategic investment partner for the series. Zodiak Kids owns worldwide distribution and licensing rights for Floogals.
