DANDELOOO BAGS WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS TO COMEDY SERIES “OUR PIGGY”
Emmy Award-winning French animation production and distribution company Dandelooo has struck a deal with Emmy Award-winning Czech film and television production company Bionaut for the new adorable comedy series Our Piggy.
The deal gives Dandelooo exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the 2-D animated series targeted at 2 – 4-year-olds produced by Bionaut, producers of the highly successful Hungry Bear Tales series.
Created and based on the book by Jaromir Plachy, nominated for the Golden Pinwheel, Young Illustrators Competition Award 2021, Our Piggy (52 x 2’) discovers the magic of ordinary objects and invites children into his extraordinary world through inquisitiveness and play!
Commenting on the deal, Emmanuèle Pétry Sirvin, Co-Founder of Dandelooo, said, “This new series is based on the Director’s observation of his own child, which explains the charm of this delightful character. I fell in love immediately with this series which illustrates the well known quote “keep it simple”. Bionaut is one of the most talented studios in Central Europe and we are proud to distribute their programs internationally”.
Small, naive, curious, and playful. Just like the youngest children Our Piggy is discovering and learning about the things around him. It is the most interesting in the everyday things that turn into what they are in his imagination. A box becomes a tractor, a pillow becomes a bee – or is it the other way around?
Is a washing machine more fun than a TV? Best toy? Well, a piece of hose for Our Piggy, and what’s the best thing about getting a present? The box of course! Our Piggy discovers the world one step at a time, joining in is fun!
