CBBC pick up Monster Loving Maniacs
Toon2Tango announces another sale for the highly anticipated, original kids’ comedy animation Monster Loving Maniacs (52×11’). The show has been picked up by CBBC, the leading UK free-to-air television channel for children aged 6 to 12 and is set to air in time for Halloween.
Join Edith, Ernest and Bo, three siblings, who are being trained as monster hunters by their tough old grandfather. These kids are massive horror fans who love dangerous mythical creatures, which doesn’t quite match their grandfather’s old-school ideas. So, as soon as grandpa takes one of his many naps, they look for a way to save the monsters rather than hunt them.
Monster Loving Maniacs is an animated comedy for 6 to 10 year-olds. It is exciting, funny and unsurprisingly has lots of monsters while also touching wider themes such as families, relationships and coping with our fears.
The show is created and produced by Ja Film and co-produced with Mondo TV, Belvision and Ginger Pictures. The series is distributed by Toon2Tango and Mondo TV. It has already been commissioned by the Danish pubcaster DR, prestigious free-to-air broadcaster Super RTL of Germany and pre-sold to Scandinavian public broadcasters NRK and SVT. New deals with leading broadcasters around the world are due to be announced before MIPCOM 2022.
Broadcasters already on board have been attracted not just by the original themes and the show’s appeal to kids and family alike, but also by the show’s focus on values like inclusion, open-mindedness and tolerance – and, of course, the humour arising from the generational clash at the core of the show.
