Kidstream, Kids Street pick up animated series from Monster Entertainment

Fia’s Fairies is produced by Ireland’s Little Moon

US children’s streaming platform Kidstream and Condista’s pay TV channel Kids Street have both acquired animated series from Ireland-based distributor Monster Entertainment ahead of their debut at Mip Junior in October.

Kidstream has picked up The Charlie Shepherd Show, while Kids Street has bought Fia’s Fairies, Storytime with Ms Booksy, Zizi & Hannibal and Once Upon My Story.

From Brazil’s TV Pinguim, The Charlie Shepherd Show (26×11’) is an animated talkshow for 4-7s hosted by a funny and clumsy sheep who interviews all sorts of everyday objects.

Fia’s Fairies (26×5’), from Ireland’s Little Moon, is aimed at 3-7s and follows the titular character and her best friend as they journey to Fairy World, where they learn an enchanting second language through exciting adventures with the fairies and all their magical friends. Ireland’s RTÉ Junior is providing funding for the series.

Ms Booksy, meanwhile, is a 30×7’ series for 4-8s about a magical and whimsical storyteller who literally jumps into classic fairytales, bringing the well-known stories and characters to life with her own unique twist. From US entertainment company Drive Studios, the show is a spin-off to the hit YouTube series.

Zizi & Hannibal (26×11’) is also for 4-8s and is produced by Pixcomm South Africa. The series follows Zizi, a clever and curious little girl, and her best friend, a happy-go-lucky hippo called Hannibal. In each episode Zizi uses her imagination to enter a magical world, where she learns all about the wonderful animals of Africa.

Finally, Once Upon My Story (30×2.5’) is aimed at 3-6s and is produced by Canada’s Maki Media for Canadian broadcasters TFO and Unis. The series features animated stories made up by a group of six-year-olds.
