Animation and media company FuturumKids, whose new CGI show for four-to-seven-year-olds, “Paddles,” is about to launch in a number of markets, has announced that brand management company Monster Entertainment has signed a global distribution deal for “Paddles.”

Monster Entertainment will focus on bringing “Paddles” to all territories except Korea, which will be managed by local company Neon.

“With its strong reputation, diverse range and especially its highly successful focus on children’s animation, Monster Entertainment is the ideal partner to develop our strategy for bringing Paddles to the wide broadcast and merchandising audience it deserves,” says Brendan Kelly, sales head, FuturumKids. “We are looking forward enormously to working with the Monster Entertainment team.”

This appointment is the latest stage in the broadcast and merchandising development of “Paddles,” whose makers include members of the team behind the children’s series Jakers! Paddles has already been sold to Cartoonito U.K. with more major broadcast deals imminent. As well as distribution deals with Monster and Neon, an e-commerce venture for plush is in the works.
