Animated series Oswaldo’s TV rights sold to broadcasters globally
MUMBAI: Kid Glove has sold the broadcast rights of animated series Oswaldo to Cartoon Network in Italy, Israel, Turkey, the Middle East, and Africa, and to Disney in Southeast Asia. Both networks are scheduled to air the series from 2019.
Oswaldo is a co-production between Birdo Studios, Brazil and Symbiosys Entertainment, India. The animated series’ worldwide rights are managed by Jetpack Distribution and Kid Glove.
Aimed at kids 6-11, Oswaldo follows the misadventures of a young penguin who was adopted and raised by human parents, facing his biggest challenge – surviving school. Luckily, the quirky little guy can count on best friends Tobias and Leia to help him overcome strict art teachers, rabid packs of babies, role-playing games gone awry or the occasional rogue science fair project.
“We are pleased to have CN and Disney on board in these key territories and are looking forward to Oswaldo landing on more broadcasters in the months to come,” says Brenda Wooding at Kid Glove.
The series is the first original from creator Pedro Eboli (Cupcake and Dino: General Services, Monster Pack). The first 13 episodes premiered on Cartoon Network Brasil and TV Cultura last year, and ranked among the top five most-shows shows on CN Brasil for kids 4-11.
