4Kids Latches on to BRB’s Suckers Series

4Kids Entertainment is the new licensing agent in North America, the United Kingdom and Ireland for Suckers, a new animated series from BRB Internacional.

The series consists of 104 two-minute episodes depicting the world as seen by toys attached to the rear windows of cars by suction cups. The comedy series, which is aimed at children ages 6-12 and has no dialoge, won the Kids Jury Award at MIP Junior in 2009.

Suckers has been airing on Disney XD in the United States since last February and in Spain starting in April, with the rest of the EMEA region to follow.

‘The show is very unusual, great fun and presents a significant opportunity in licensing terms,’ said Sandra Vauthier-Cellier, managing director of 4Kids Entertainment International.

4Kids Entertainment will be showing Suckers in booth 5649 at the Licensing International Expo, set for June 8-10 in Las Vegas.
