“It’s a very exciting time to be joining One Animation,” says Ochoa. “In the last 12 months, ‘Oddbods’ has garnered an astonishing 2 billion views on YouTube. Pair this with ‘Oddbods’ now being aired throughout EMEA and the U.S. across leading free-to-air, subscription and SVOD channels, and it is clear we are in a very strong position to keep developing out licensing programs to satisfy this huge demand for the series.
“Our aim now is to continue signing key international partnerships, such as our Ferrero range, which launched this summer, and to continue to build on the already excellent licensee portfolios we have in place,” continues Ochoa. “We also have a number of fantastic new animated properties in development, which we are looking forward to announcing and securing licensing partners for in the coming months.”
