London-based Snipple Originals, the original content arm of producer Snipple Animation, has sold its new 2D animated comedy preschool musical show The Singalings to Sky Kids.
The Singalings is an edu-tainment series that features “music, comedy and unforgettable earworms for young audiences.” It comprises 26 x 1 ’45’ songs, 26 x 5’ episodes, 2 x song compilations and 5 x episode compilations.
Jetpack Distribution, has picked up the worldwide rights (outside of the UK); and will be presenting the show to buyers for pre-sale at Kidscreen next month.
The show – which kicks off each episode with a song – centres around three inquisitive and eager extra-terrestrials, MELODY, HARMONY and BOP, who are here to discover all they can about Earth! The excitable little Singalings can’t help but sing along as they explore Earth and all it has to offer! A sing-a-long visit to the zoo, the beach, a funfair and even a ride on the bus. The Singalings love to investigate.
Snipple Originals now has ten shows (and 220 half hours of content) in development across multiple genres including: comedy, action, adventure and edutainment. The division launched in 2020 alongside a £6m investment from BGF. It is spearheaded by producer Karina Stanford-Smith as Director of Snipple Originals.
Snipple Originals is part of Snipple Group, led by founders CEO Kaine Patel, Studio Director Jonathan Tinsay and Creative Director Romy Garcia. The company works with the world’s biggest networks including Disney, Dreamworks, Warner Media, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.
Its portfolio includes Animaniacs, Green Eggs and Ham, Ducktales, Be Cool Scooby Doo, Phineas and Ferb and The Proud Family
Karina Stanford Smith says: “The Singalings has a bold and eye-catching style. It’s a simple and hilarious animation with songs that are infectious; and guaranteed to get kids singing for days after, even after hearing just once! It’s a fun show with a modern pre-school audience in mind; and entertains as well as teaches.”
CEO Kaine Patel adds: “We’re building a sizable slate across multiple genres; taking brilliant ideas and turning them into content kids and families will love.”
Gillian Calvert Ridge, Global Distribution Director, Acquisitions and Development, Jetpack, says: “The Singalings is a fantastic addition to our Kidscreen line up and harnesses the power of music and songs for that age group. We’ve all been singing along!”
