Entertainment One (eOne) announced that The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia and Bravokids have both acquired the exclusive pay TV broadcast rights to season 1 (52 x 11’) of the animated children’s comedy series Cupcake & Dino: General Services in South East Asia and Korea.
Episodes are due to start airing from spring 2020 across multiple territories on the Disney Channel including Brunei, Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Republic of Palau, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam as well as on Bravokids in Korea.
“This latest deal for Cupcake & Dino highlights the growing global appeal of Pedro Eboli’s hilarious show and we look forward to bringing the duo’s madcap adventures to new audiences across Asia,” said Monica Candiani, EVP Content Sales, Family & Brands, eOne.
Created by Brazilian director Pedro Eboli and a co-production between eOne and Brazil’s award-winning animation studio Birdo Studios, Cupcake & Dino: General Services follows the hilarious exploits of a tiny Cupcake with big ideas and his giant spunky brother Dino as they strive to make a name for themselves in the super competitive General Services industry. Aimed at boys and girls aged 6-11 years, whilst also ticking that “kidult” box, this is a laugh-out-loud cartoon sitcom about two larger-than-life bros packed with big-time heart.
Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on Netflix, Teletoon in Canada and Disney channels in Latin America.
