Coolabi’s Clangers visit China

The Clangers underwent a reboot in 2015

UK kids’ entertainment firm Coolabi Group and China’s Fantawild Animation have struck a deal to bring preschool brand Clangers to the Chinese market.

The stop-motion animated show about a family of pink, mouse-like creatures who live on a Little Blue Planet and communicate in whistles, originally aired on BBC1 in the UK between 1969 and 1972, and was rebooted in 2015.

Fantawild is working to localise the show for Chinese broadcasters and develop new merchandise to adapt it for Chinese preschoolers.

Jeremy Banks, CEO of Coolabi Group, said: “I knew that we had to work with Fantawild in China on this property the first time I met with them and heard their vision for Clangers in China. They are very well-established and respected and we trust that Clangers is in the best of hands with them.”

Daisy Shang, executive president of Fantawild Group and president of Fantawild Animation, added: “We are very happy to be partnering with our friends at Coolabi. We believe that Clangers will instil something new into the Chinese preschool animation industry. The enlightening programme will stimulate children’s imaginations and become a unique presence in the Chinese market.”

Fantawild recently collaborated with Belgium’s Studio 100 Media on new animated series Doctor Space.
