Monster’s New Series ‘Harry & Bip’ Picked Up By Disney
15 Feb 2017 : Laura Brennan
‘Harry & Bip’ the children's animated series picks up new distribution deal
Monster Entertainment has picked up distribution of the newly completed animation series ‘Harry & Bip’, and has already sold it to Disney for all of Central Europe, Middle East and Africa and to SRC for French-speaking Canada.

‘Harry & Bip’ is a new non-verbal CGI comedy series about two energetic young penguins who are all about the three ‘F’s… Fun, Fish and Friends!

The 15x2minute series is directed by Leevi Lemmetty and produced by Tamsin Lyons of Ink and Light and Muste ja Valo Oy in association with RTÉ, YLE, Finnish Film Foundation and the Irish Film Board. Additional support comes from the Section 481 incentive in Ireland. Further episodes are in development.

Voices are provided by Antti Pääkkönen (‘Angry Birds Toons’) and music by Mark Thomas (‘Shaun the Sheep’, ‘The Magic Roundabout’). Additional writing by Dave Rudden, children’s author - 2016 Irish Book Awards winner ‘Knights of the Borrowed Dark’).  

The series follows Harry and Bip, who live in a vast icy expanse which they can’t wait to explore. They navigate their friendship, and the world around them with physical humour, slapstick comedy and a lot of heart. They’re competitive and love to play pranks, but would do anything for each other if needed.

The pair bump into other local residents from time to time. A sleepy walrus or two, a horde of seagull tourists and delicious fish all encounter the boisterous heroes during their exploits.
