London-based CAKE has signed on as distributor for new animated preschool series Tolibob, produced by Beakus in association with Cloth Cat for CBeebies (UK) and ABC (Australia). CAKE will handle rights for the 52 x 5 series worldwide, excluding Japan.
The series follows a group of creative creatures called Tolibobs — Tib, Lalloo and Bobble live in a big forest where they play, explore and solve everyday problems. In each episode, they work together combining shapes, colors and patterns to create a new character to join in their fun.
Tolibob is created and developed by director-producer Steve Smith of Beakus and author-illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson.
“Tolibob is a fun, unique concept that shows children how to create characters using shapes, patterns and their imagination,” said Ed Galton, Chief Commercial Officer and MD at CAKE. “With a terrific award-winning team behind it, we are sure it will be warmly received at MIPCOM.”
