Tulipop Shorts Land on RUV in Iceland


RUV, Iceland’s public broadcaster, has picked up the original ten episodes of the animated Tulipop short, bringing the brand from YouTube to linear television.

The episodes, which were available originally on the Tulipop YouTube channel, have been dubbed in Icelandic. Additionally, ten new episodes will be co-produced for the YouTube channel by WildBrain, with Tobi Wilson and Brydie Lee-Kennedy as scriptwriters.

Four months after its launch, the Tulipop YouTube channel has reached 1 million views. A 52×11-minute series is currently in development. Tulipop was created by Icelandic illustrator Signy Kolbeinsdottir and marketing expert Helga Arnadottir in 2010.

Arnadottir, co-founder of Tulipop, said, “It was always our ambition to extend the world of Tulipop into animation so we are thrilled that so many people around the globe have taken our beloved creations to their hearts. We can’t wait to release more Tulipop animated stories featuring our strange but lovable characters!”
