Cottonwood Media has inked a new licensing partnership with South Korea’s Asiana Licensing Inc. for the hit pre-school animation series The Ollie & Moon Show.

Asiana’s deal covers publishing, toys, apparel, collectables and promotions in the region, with a focus on high-end collections targeted at pre-school through to tweens.

The partnership, brokered by Ana Micoud, who spearheads Cottonwood’s licensing business through her company The Wizards. is following the successful debut of The Ollie & Moon Show TV series on EBS, one of South Korea’s leading TV channels.

“Asiana Licensing is a perfect partner to extend this brand into the L&M arena as they have an unparalleled understanding of what the Korean audience wants when it comes to buying licensed merchandise, as well as an impressive track record for building promotional partnerships,” says Ana.

Now into its second season, The Ollie & Moon Show is produced by Cottonwood Media and distributed worldwide by parent company Federation Kids & Family. It has already sold into more than 150 territories worldwide, airing on major platforms such as Tiny Pop, Netflix, TVO, Radio Canada, YLE, France TV, RTP, Canal Panda, Tencent Video, Discovery (multi-territory).

Hangyung Kim, Brand Manager, Asiana Licensing, says: “We are delighted to be representing the L&M rights for The Ollie & Moon Show. The TV series was extremely well received by viewers when it aired on EBS, captivating young audiences with its globetrotting storylines and educational/entertaining details which feature cultural experiences in various countries.

“As such, this is perfect timing to bring the adorable heroes of the show into the daily lives of children and their parents in Korea.”
