Sky Kids Orders Aliens Love Underpants Holiday Special


Sky Kids has commissioned Endemol Shine’s Tiger Aspect to produce an Aliens Love Underpants AND… Christmas special titled Aliens Love Panta Claus.

Aliens Love Panta Claus is based on Simon and Schuster’s picture book of the same name by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. The 30-minute episode sees the aliens help Santa deliver all of his gifts by spaceship after they realize they have a famous pair of underpants that could ruin Christmas. It is due to debut on Sky One this year as well as via Sky’s on-demand platforms.

The Aliens Love Underpants AND… series is distributed by Endemol Shine International, with licensing handled by Endemol Shine Group.

Tom Beattie, the head of animation and kids at Tiger Aspect, remarked: “With Santa Claus, spaceships, aliens and underpants, what more could you want from a Christmas special? It’s great news that we are able to bring such a fun story to life on Sky.”

Lucy Murphy, the head of Sky Kids, added: “We pride ourselves on bringing viewers more of the content they love and having seen the success of the Aliens Love Underpants AND… song shorts, it was a natural fit for us to commission a Christmas special with both our animated friends and the team at Tiger Aspect. This is a joyously silly story with such lovable characters and we know the whole family will love it—and won’t be able to stop singing along.”
