Moonscoop has scored a raft of international sales for its unique preschool series AVA RIKO TEO (65x7). The animated paper cutout show is a co-production with Character Plan, France 5 and EBS.
Italy's Rai 3, Al Jazeera Children's Channel in the Middle East, Disney Australia, MTV3 Finland, Israel's HOP, Venevision and CEE channel JimJam have snapped up the show which is the second highest-rated on EBS in Korea and rates number one on France 5 out of all co-produced series.
Based on the works of French author and artist Mila Boutan, AVA RIKO TEO is created using a colourful onscreen assembling of all kinds of paper cutouts, which become the setting for young viewers to follow the fun, childlike adventures of three loveable friends: Teo, a soft and cuddly bear, Ava, a charming giraffe, and Riko, a rather hyper-active rabbit.
With the setting of the story in place, young viewers are then ready to follow the fun, childlike adventures of three loveable friends, each of whom set out on new adventures into an ever-changing world, again, made from paper cutouts.
The series is designed to encourage children to take action and be inspired creatively to make their own creations and stories. A dedicated website at www.avarikoteo.com continues the experience for viewers with a full range of art and craft activities for children. The online component has been co-produced by Moonscoop with EBS and France 5.
