London-based kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE, France’s La Cabane and Belgium’s Thuristar have announced the launch of Mush-Mush & the Mushables. The CGI comedy adventure series will make its market debut with two new episodes at MIPCOM (Oct. 15-18).
“We are delighted to be introducing Mush-Mush & the Mushables to the international market – a fun, warm-hearted comedy series about the forest adventures of a charming community of loveable Mushables that children everywhere will enjoy,” said Ed Galton, CCO & Managing Director at CAKE.
Perrine Gauthier, Founder and producer at La Cabane and Thuristar, commented, “We cannot wait to share the comedy adventures, unique characters and beautiful world of Mush-Mush & the Mushables with kids around the world, and we’re very excited to be launching the series at MIPCOM together with CAKE.”
Mush-Mush & the Mushables (48 x 11’ & 2 x 22’ specials) follows the comedy adventures of the Mushable community as together they put the fun back into fungi! As pocket-sized Guardians of the Forest, each Mushable has a special gift. While Mush-Mush can communicate with nature, Lilit shines bright like a light and Chep has an impressive memory. As they get to know their talents and their limits, the Mushables find there is still a lot to discover about growing up. Mush-Mush & the Mushables is a fun journey of self-discovery, exciting outdoor adventure and mush, mush more!
The forest floor adventures of the Mushables will arrive on air in 2020, launching internationally on Boomerang (in addition to Turner Kids channels Cartoon Network, Boing and POGO in select markets), in France on Canal+ Family and Piwi+, in Belgium on VRT-Ketnet and RTBF, in Switzerland on RTS and in the Netherlands on RTL Telekids.
Copyrights Group, brand owner and licensing agent for Paddington, have been appointed as the global licensing agent and will launch the IP at Brand Licensing Europe 2019.
With original drawings by Elfriede de Rooster, the series is directed by Joeri Christiaen (My Knight and Me) and produced by La Cabane and Thuristar in coproduction with CAKE who are distributing the series worldwide.
