“Fuzzy Tales” heads to the U.S. as Bejuba! licenses the short-form series to Disney Junior.
Toronto, Canada -- Bejuba! Entertainment has licensed children’s short-form series Fuzzy Tales to Disney Junior in the US. The pre-school series featuring live-action animals re-enacting beloved fairy tales in a CGI-mixed world is produced by Brain Power Studios in Canada in association with the CBC. The series will begin airing on Disney Channel and Disney Junior in the US beginning April 5th of this year. Fuzzy Tales is also currently airing on Disney Australia.
"We’re delighted that Disney US has come on board. The series has immediately become a fan favourite on the CBC with its fresh storytelling, humour and cuddly animals” says Tatiana Kober of Bejuba! Entertainment.
The series is the first proprietary property launched by industry titan Beth Stevenson's media company Brain Power Studio Inc. She adds "We are overwhelmed with the audience’s reactions to Fuzzy Tales. We continue to receive an outpouring from kids and families that are connecting with the characters and the show. It really demonstrates the power of pets and what they bring to our lives."
The series takes place in Fuzzy Phil's Pet Shop. Every afternoon, after the customers have gone, these adorable pets in waiting gather together for their own special story-time. With Gertie the Guinea Pig as Narrator, the animals act out stories to make each other laugh and giggle.
