Silvergate and Tencent Bringing ‘The Creature Cases’ Animated Series to China

Animated by TeamTO and recently launched on Netflix, the animated action comedy is coming soon to families in the Middle Kingdom through Tencent Video.

Silvergate Media has partnered with Tencent Video to launch its CG animated kids’ series The Creature Cases in China. Animated by TeamTo, the show follows the adventures of a unique detective duo who specializes in solving animal mysteries. Already launched on Netflix in April, the animated action comedy will soon be released on Tencent Video, expanding its broadcast reach to families across China. The launch will be followed by a full consumer product roll-out beginning in 2023

In the series, Sam Snow and Kit Casey are the lead agents of CLADE: the Covert League of Animal Detective Experts, who solve animal mysteries by exploring the habitats and behaviors of fascinating, sometimes bizarre creatures. Armed with top-secret intel from their miniature contacts, the Mice Squad, these brilliant animal sleuths travel a world populated exclusively by animals, solving mind-boggling animal mysteries that mix real zoological facts with wild detective action.

The Creature Cases storylines have a vibrant, universal appeal and we’re excited that this new partnership with Tencent Video will bring the show to viewers in China,” commented Ron Allen, EVP Commercial. “Tencent Video shares our passion for bringing audiences innovative children’s content and we look forward to showcasing the series on China’s leading VOD platform and building a broad consumer products program.”

“We are delighted to get our paws on The Creature Cases and thrilled to be partnering with Silvergate Media on this dynamic new series,” added Selina She, Director of Kids’ IP Development and Programming Centre at Tencent Video. “We deduce that its exotic mix of real-life fascinating facts from the amazing animal kingdom along with side-splitting, super-sleuthing detective antics will have broad appeal in China. We are excited to be launching the series in the territory shortly, followed by the start of our consumer products program which will be full of animal wonder!”
