Leading kids’ entertainment specialist, CAKE has been appointed as worldwide distributor for kids’ animation Tom & The Slice of Bread with Strawberry Jam & Honey. The 52 x 5’ series for children aged three-to-six years old will be taken to this year’s MIPTV market.
Tom & The Slice of Bread with Strawberry Jam & Honey is a Studio Film Bilder, SWR, BR and WDR co-production. The series, created by award-winning director Andreas Hykade (Love & Theft, The Bunjies, Ring of Fire, The Runt), takes place in a magical world where the everyday stands side-by-side with the extraordinary. The eponymous Tom only has one thing on his mind – a delicious slice of bread with strawberry jam and honey. On his quest to find this tasty treat, Tom is forever running into new characters and situations along the way; every time he has a good idea, he stumbles headfirst into a new adventure.
Already a huge success in Germany, Tom & The Slice of Bread with Strawberry Jam & Honey has been airing on KI.KA since December 2005 where it has enjoyed an average 66% market share of the daily prime-time target group.
Tom Van Waveren, CEO and Creative Director, CAKE said: “What sets Tom and the Slice of Bread with Strawberry Jam and Honey apart from the crowd is its striking visual style and its sense of humor. The way in which Andreas Hykade has applied his film making skills to this project gives it a very special look, tone and feel. It means that you sit through this series as through watching a collection of short films, which is a true joy. And, children love it as well!”
