The company has been appointed as UK licensing agent for the new children’s property
Kazoops is the animated series which follows the adventures of six-year-old Monty and his pet pig, Jimmy Jones. A unique element of the show is its use of music, with each episode having its own individual two-minute song. The new TV show is set to air on CBeebies in June.
Art and Science has been appointed to create a UK merchandising programme across multiple sectors, with the first partners soon to be announced.
Patrick Egerton, executive producer at Cheeky Little Media, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with the team from Art and Science in creating a full licensing programme for Kazoops. This is a very special property and we aim to recreate the magic that comes with every episode, as Monty and Jimmy Jones explore the world around them and challenge rules and preconceptions of everyday life through the power of Monty’s imagination.”
Nicola Webster, Art and Science’s licensing director, added: “This property has a unique musical element and whimsical imaginative content that children of this age will identify with. To go with it is beautiful CGI imagery that pays homage to traditional clay animation and really brings the modern day heroes of Monty and Jimmy Jones to life. We look forward to introducing this delightful property to our licence partners in coming weeks and months.”
Cheeky Little Media has also appointed Evolution PR to manage activity leading up to the UK launch of the TV show on CBeebies and maximise ongoing awareness for the brand.
