The Jim Henson Company’s Parents’ Choice Gold Award-winning Doozers has arrived on Germany’s KiKa, coinciding with the signing of additional new media partners for the CG preschool series based on the classic Fraggle Rock. KiKa is a joint venture of ARD and ZDF and is available across Germany.
Doozers follows the adventures of The Pod Squad: Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex and Daisy Wheel — four Doozer kids who live at the edge of our world and right under our noses in the fantastical, modern and eco-friendly Doozer Creek. The show celebrates the spirit of innovation and inspires young viewers to have an “I can do it” attitude. Doozers features a design thinking curriculum, part of an overall STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) initiative.
Additional new media partners include Video On Demand 365 (U.K. SVOD rights) and Letson Corporation (Russia AVOD rights). Earlier announced partners include broadcasters France Televisions, RTVE for Clan (Spain), Dreamia (Portugal), AMC Networks International for Canal Panda (Spain), TV New Zealand, Mediacorp’s Okto (Malaysia and Singapore), HOP! (Israel), Radio Television Brunei and E-Junior (U.A.E.); and home video distributor Polyband (German-language markets).
