Entertainment One (eOne) has announced that WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks channel, Cartoon Network and Boomerang, has acquired the exclusive pay-TV broadcast rights to series one (52 x 11-minute episodes) of the animated children’s comedy series Cupcake & Dino: General Services in Australia and New Zealand. Episodes are due to begin airing from July 2020.
Speaking of the announcement, eOne’s Monica Candiani, EVP Content Sales, Family & Brands said: “We’re delighted to be adding world-class channel partners, Cartoon Network and Boomerang, to our growing list of broadcasters for Cupcake & Dino around the world. It’s big on heart and packed full of character and humour, so we can’t wait to share the hilarious adventures of this comedy duo with new audiences in Australia and New Zealand in the coming months.”
Created by Brazilian director Pedro Eboli, Cupcake & Dino: General Services is a co-production between eOne and Brazil’s award-winning animation studio Birdo Studios. The series follows the hilarious exploits of a tiny Cupcake with big ideas and his giant spunky brother Dino as they strive to make a name for themselves in the super-competitive general services industry. Aimed at boys and girls aged six to 11 years, while also ticking that ‘kidult’ box too, this is a laugh-out-loud cartoon sitcom about two larger-than-life bros.
Series one and two of eOne’s Cupcake & Dino are currently available on Netflix globally, Pop! in the UK, Dea Kids in Italy, Canada’s Teletoon, Bravokids in Korea and Disney channels in Latin America and South East Asia.
