Zodiak Kids & Gigglebug Team Up for New Comedy Series


Zodiak Kids Studio France, part of Banijay, and Gigglebug Entertainment in the Nordics have partnered to co-produce The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti.

An original animated comedy series for kids aged 6 and up and their families, The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti is an off-beat comedy series set in a town above the Arctic Circle where it’s winter all-year-round and monsters are forbidden. The series follows the adventures of an unlikely trio of friends—surfer Osmo, his no-nonsense cousin Rita and the titular yeti.

Production on The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti began over the summer, with the series set to launch in 2022. It has been co-commissioned by Disney Channel Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Nordic broadcasters YLE, DR, NRK and SVT. Zodiak Kids holds international distribution rights to the series.

Benoit di Sabatino, CEO of Zodiak Kids, said: “The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti is a top comedy IP we have been successfully developing with Gigglebug and Disney EMEA for a couple of years. We are so proud to greenlight the production and give birth to this series with such quality partners all over the world.”

Anttu Harlin, CEO and co-founder of Gigglebug Entertainment, said: “At Gigglebug we aim to positively impact the lives of children around the world by spreading joy through our work, and no character is more outrageously delightful than the Yellow Yeti himself! The coming together of Zodiak, Disney, YLE and our creative team at Gigglebug has been great fun and together we look forward to sharing with kids everywhere our exuberant fish-out-of-water comedy about the power of friendship and belonging.”
