Paris, 15 September 2011 – Moonscoop, the worldwide brand management and entertainment company representing properties from some of the leading animation producers across the globe, has signed a raft of pre-sales in advance of MIPCOM for the brand new CGI-animated second season of Casper’s Scare School (52x11’ or 26x22’).
Italy’s Mediaset; Disney Channel France; DR in Denmark, and Canada’s Telequebec join TF1, Disney Channel Spain and Portugal on the growing list of channels on board to air the new season.
Lionel Marty, President, Worldwide Sales at Moonscoop said: “We’ve advanced the animation for the second season with new elements that will add to the existing look and feel of the first series. We’re introducing some new CGI character guests for example, plus deeper expressions on the faces of all main characters - all of which we believe will deliver an even bigger and better show for Casper fans.”
The series is a Moonscoop production with Classic Media and DQE. Moonscoop handles worldwide distribution with the exception of North and Latin America, the UK which is handled by Classic Media, and the Middle East, Oceania and Asia which is managed by DQE. Delivery is set for June 2012.
CGI-animated Casper’s Scare School continues the adventures of everyone’s friendly ghost Casper, who would rather make friends than frighten. Founded over 10,000 years ago to educate and prepare the creature youth of today for the difficult challenges they’ll face tomorrow, Scare School’s purpose is to turn its pupils into lean, mean, scaring machines! All the students but one that is… Casper doesn’t want to disappoint his teachers, but scaring just isn’t his thing. No matter how hard he works at being scary, Casper can’t help but be friendly.
