Ahead of their launch at MIPCOM, Monster has concluded a number of sales for its new acquisitions.

Urban Tails, 52 x 2 mins, for 4-6-year-olds has been sold to Azoomee, Fauna and HMH’s Curious World.

Cocoland, 26 x 5 mins, for 3-6-year-olds, has been sold to HMH’s Curious World and Kidoodle. From Costa Rica’s Rocket Cartoons, the series is set in a beautiful town in the Caribbean where our group of friends learn soft skills such as empathy

Wow! Wow! Rolling Friends, 26 x 11 mins for 3-6-year-olds is from Korea’s Flying Pig, the series is set in a magical world where everything is made out of bricks.  Everyday problems are solved by creativity and constructing something which helps solve the problem.  The first 2 sales agreements for this series are currently being concluded.

Wackyland Monsterland, 26 x 11 mins, for 6-11-year-olds, was commissioned by Nickelodeon Latin America.  Produced by Brazil’s 44 Toons, the series main character, Otto, must try to find a way of living a normal-ish life in Wackyland, which can change randomly into Monsterland, and vice versa.

Monster will also be searching for pre-sales to close out the financing for Farmer Mo, 26 x 7 mins for 3-6-year-olds, which has already been pre-sold to YLE and SVT.  This is the next series from Ireland’s Wiggleywoo, the producers of The Day Henry Met…, which Monster has sold in 178 countries.
