Following the recent news of the June 5 premiere of Kartoon Channel’s “Shaq’s Garage,” starring and executive produced by Shaquille O’Neal, on Pluto TV, Genius Brands International and Andamiro have announced the summer release of an exclusive basketball-themed arcade game, “Tic Shaq Toe.”
“Shaquille O’Neal, Rob Gronkowski, cars, action, adventure and comedy, along with delivering positivity and life lessons … are many of the key elements that we believe will make this brand a huge success,” says Drew Maniscalco, president, Andamiro. “From the early stages of development, we knew we wanted to be involved and are thrilled with the result of our ‘Tic SHAQ Toe’ arcade game.”
Inspired by the upcoming animated action-adventure and comedy series for children, the new attraction will begin rolling out nationwide in late June at arcades, family entertainment centers and amusement parks, among other entertainment venues.
“‘Shaq’s Garage’ is a unique brand that was inspired by Shaquille O’Neal’s real-life love of cars, with a mission to engage and inspire kids of all ages around the world,” says Lloyd Mintz, senior vice president, global consumer products, Genius Brands. “As we prepare for the global consumer products program this year, our focus is to develop strategic partner collaborations that offer kids and families ways to engage with the brand beyond the traditional categories. Andamiro understood our mission and created a fun and engaging arcade game that will no doubt be a hit with kids.”
