New show aims for a broader audience while building on the worldwide success of Pukeko Pictures’ original series.

CAKE is teaming with Pukeko Pictures to launch ‘Kiddets,’ a spinoff from Pukeko’s ‘WotWots’ co-produced with China’s Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Co.

LONDON -- CAKE has announced its partnership with New Zealand-based Pukeko Pictures to launch Kiddets, a sister series to hit animated preschool show, The WotWots.

Expanding The WotWots franchise with 52 brand new adventures, Kiddets will introduce five new WotWot characters, young space cadets in training, at a play school space academy on planet WotWot.

Appealing to fans of the original series, Kiddets aims for broader audience appeal, including older preschool children, with each 11-minute episode demonstrating the positive values of teamwork and the building blocks of true and enduring friendship.

Under the agreement, CAKE will have worldwide distribution rights excluding Australia, New Zealand and Greater China to Kiddets. The agreement also extends to North American and European rights (for series 2) of the original Pukeko Pictures show The WotWots (78 x 11’), a global hit series that has aired in over a hundred countries and which included an extensive licensing program.

Kiddets is co-produced by Pukeko Pictures and Guangdong Huawen Century Animation Co. and is the first official children’s television co-production between New Zealand and China.
