Toronto, Canada – CiTV UK has renewed the hit animated children’s comedy series Almost Naked Animals (52 x 22’) for a third season. The series, produced and distributed by 9 Story Entertainment, was recently nominated for a BAFTA Kids’ Vote Award.
Chosen as one of People Magazine’s top children’s shows to watch, the series is seen in the U.S. on Cartoon Network and in Canada on YTV and VRAK, in addition to airing on leading international channels including ABC Australia, Disney Channel Italy, Disney Channel India, Disney Channel Latin America, Disney Channel Spain and Portugal, NPO’s children’s channel Z@pp/Zeppelin in the Netherlands, Super RTL Germany, Canal+ Family, Noga Isreal, RTE Ireland DR Denmark and TéléTOON+. Almost Naked Animals’ robust licensing program includes home entertainment, toys and apparel, an online super game, an e-commerce store in addition to social networking partnerships.
Almost Naked Animals is a joyously irreverent animated comedy series, featuring an oddly lovable assortment of free-spirited animals in their underwear, who run a beach-front hotel like kids at a summer camp – doing their best to make each day more fun than the last. Lead dog and hotel manager Howie, who has the attention span of an 11-year-old in a video arcade, heads the dysfunctional but extremely humorous ensemble cast.
