Warner Bros. Consumer Products is set to expand the PUCCA animated series' merchandise to the U.S., Canada and Mexico, reports VARIETY. The South Korean series originated on the internet and has a successful consumer products industry in Brazil.
Vooz Co. launched PUCCA on the internet in 2000 as a short Flash series about the young daughter of a Chinese restaurant owner who falls in love with a 12-year-old ninja. The series then got a place on Disney XD.
Planned merchandise includes apparel, accessories, school supplies, bedding and home goods. WBCP will put special focus on Latin America and Mexico.
