Hoho Rights to manage Abadas TV show

Published on: 12th June 2012

Hoho Rights, the commercial arm of Hoho Entertainment, has been appointed by Dinamo Productions to manage the international TV and Licensing rights to its pre-school show, Abadas.

Oliver Ellis and Helen Howells, joint managing directors at Hoho Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to be working with Dinamo on this lovely series. Early feedback shows that children love to sing and dance along with the characters while also joining in the fun finding out what the word of the day is.”

Siwan Jobbins, senior producer at Dinamo, added: “Abadas is the first production that CBeebies, S4C and RTÉ have worked on together, and Dinamo are delighted to have brought these partners together. As well as positive feedback from our broadcasters, we’ve been overwhelmed by the wonderful comments about the series that we’ve had from both parents and children. We are now looking forward to partnering with the very talented team at Hoho, who love the show as much as we do!”

Jackie Edwards, programme executive for CBeebies, commented: “Abadas has become a firm favourite on CBeebies. It has all the ingredients for success: lovely characters in a gorgeous setting, with some truly wonderful songs that are hard to get out of your head! All this makes it a very fun way to learn new words! Abadas is a delight.”
