The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handed out its third International Emmy Kids Awards at the ceremony hosted in New York, February 20, where Mike the Knight beat off competition in the pre-school programme category.
Edward Catchpole, SVP HIT Entertainment, commented “This external recognition of our industry leading storytelling and animation is a fantastic accolade and I am delighted for everyone involved.
