Madrid-based Ánima Kitchent announces that Spanish broadcaster RTVE has acquired its animated preschool series Cleo & Cuquin (52 x 7 min.). New TV show and transmedia brand is co-produced with Televisa, MAI and Selecta Visión, based on the iconic Familia Telerín cartoon created by José Luís and Santiago Moro in the late 1970s.
The series shows little kids tackling big adventures as young Cuquín’s curiosity leads to mishaps and mix-ups, and big sister Cleo (with the other siblings) dig Cuquín out of trouble the only way kids know how: by playing! They pretend to be astronauts, gardeners, detectives, monsters or whatever they need to be to complete their mission.
Familia Telerin was a very popular cartoon aired by TVE in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and featured the song “Vamos a la cama” (Time for bed), which became part of the bedtime routine for a generation of children in Spain and in Latin America.
Víctor M. López, CEO of Ánima Kitchent, said: “TVE was always the Familia Telerín’s home, so we never doubted for a second that Cleo & Cuquín would be aired on Clan, in addition to the fact that the channel is clearly the number one choice for this kind of content.”
Cleo & Cuquin originally launched on the Familia Telerin YouTube channel, totting up over 400 million views and a million subscribers in just a year and a half. In addition to the updated and meticulously designed new TV show, the brand comprises The Bedder app, online content, and music video clips.
