Toon2Tango & ZDF Studios Launch Dino Mite


Toon2Tango has entered into a partnership with ZDF Studios to jointly distribute the new animated series Dino Mite.

The 39×11-minute animated show is based on the children’s books Minus Drei, written by Ute Krause and published by Random House. It is set in an alternative prehistoric world in which dinosaurs are the superior species.

TRIKK17 and M.A.R.K.13, together with Fabriques d’Images, are co-producing. The show has already been picked up by German broadcaster ZDF.

Toon2Tango Co-Founder Ulli Stoef said: “The visuals and comic potential of the wonderful stories from Ute Krause makes them ideal for animation and perfect for a global audience. It’s no surprise to us that two innovative and admired production companies are already on board for Dino Mite and that the show has attracted such strong interest from a major broadcaster. We’re delighted to be joining them as distributor of this funny and original new show.”

Marei Bruckmann, Director Junior, ZDF Studios, added: ”Dinosaurs are always a guarantee for success in children’s programs. This perennial theme, together with a successful mix of humor and stories of friendship and the great execution of the creative team, are sure to make the series a worldwide success. We are elated to be working again with some of our key partners in children’s animation.”
