TINY PLANETS, co-produced by Peppers Ghost Productions (PGP) and Sesame Workshop, will be returning to MIPCOM along with the newly formatted tween series BUS STOP. Nominated as "best new property" by License! Magazine at this years New York Licensing Show, TINY PLANETS has already been sold to 73 countries and Peppers Ghost Productions is seeking sales in Spain, Benelux and Scandinavia. TV broadcast rights are also still available in France and are being handled by Euro TV. Peppers Ghost will also be bringing the series BUS STOP to MIPCOM. The show has been extended from 52 x 1-minute interstitials to 52 x 11-minute episodes. BUS STOP, which is animated in a combination of 2D and 3D, addresses the trials and tribulations of tween life through a variety of wacky characters that hang out at a bus stop.
In his review, Jerry Beck finds that TINY PLANETS teaches big concepts to pre-schoolers in a completely charming way.
