One Animation has secured a slew of new broadcast and streaming partners for its newest animated show Antiks, as well as picking up a number of new partners for fan-favourite Oddbods.

Antiks is a minimal-dialogue, slapstick comedy featuring a pair of sibling ants with an insatiable curiosity and love for all things shiny, sticky and sweet! The show will be marching its way onto ITVBe’s preschool slot LittleBe and Kidoodle, the global kidSAFE, COPPA compliant streaming service. One Animation’s existing VOD partner Toon Goggles is also adding Antiks to its slate while renewing Oddbods for a second year after seeing great audience figures for the first season.

Meanwhile, Oddbods and Rob the Robot are among the One Animation titles launching on both HOOQ and iflix, Asia-based OTT media services, along with Kidoodle, taking both titles to 140 countries across the globe. Oddbods has also bounced onto US-based Zoneify TV, a multi-channel video service which uses AI technology for content curation.

The new distribution deals build on Oddbods’ current, impressive, broadcast portfolio which covers over 180 countries, including existing VOD partners, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

Michele Schofield, SVP Content Distribution, One Animation, says: “Not only is twice Emmy-nominated Oddbods on fire and reaching a broad range of new audiences around the world, but our new show, Antiks, is making great strides right out of the gate and we can’t wait to see these loveable ants entertain millions more! One Animation will continue to work relentlessly to deliver fun and relevant stories, full of heart.
