CAKE Acquires Fleabag Monkeyface
Press release from CAKE:
Leading kids’ entertainment specialist CAKE has been appointed as the worldwide distributor for hit animation Fleabag Monkeyface. The 52x11’ series, aimed at children aged seven-to-twelve years old, will be available at this year’s MIPTV market.
Fleabag Monkeyface is a Sparky Animation, Impossible Kids, Editude Pictures and Walker Productions co-production and is based on the characters created by award-winning British writing duo Knife and Packer.
The fast-paced and fearsomely funny series follows the adventures of Fleabag Monkeyface -– a man-made half-monkey, half-boy -– and his two creators Gene and Gerald. Each episode sees the trio present an edition of their hit TV series, "Gross Out TV," in which they reveal their latest discoveries of the grossest, smelliest and most disgusting places and things. All the while, the villainous Dr. Dirk Spamflex, along with his sidekick Deathbeak, plot all sorts of fiendish things in order to reclaim the TV show that was taken from them.
Since its launch in December 2011, the series has been one of the top performers for parent channel CITV.
Tom van Waveren, CEO and Creative Director, CAKE said: “We’re excited to add Sparky Animation, Impossible Kids, Editude Pictures and Walker Productions to the group of producers we work with. The show looks great and puts a smile on your face – and we know the market will respond to that.”
CAKE will be distributing the title at this year’s MIPTV festival at their new stand R30.18. Other titles in the company’s catalogue include Let’s Go Pocoyo, Plankton Invasion and Total Drama: Revenge of the Island.
