The deal comprises season 75 two-and-a-half minute episodes across series 1-3, an 81-minute movie and 25 two-and-a-half minute episodes of Cookie. The series targets 6-11-year-olds.
The title Spookiz comes from the word ‘spooky’ and ‘kids’. It is non-verbal slapstick comedy show which has amassed more than 4 million subscribers and 4 billion viewers on YouTube worldwide. The story is about the true friendship between humans and monsters who never actually meet!. There are five main characters: CULA (an elite vampire among monsters), KEBI (a passionate goblin), KONGKONG (a cute frozen corpse), ZIZI (a zombie girl) and FRANKIE (a gluttonous Frankenstein). They are all unique, with their own colours, powers, and personalities.
The movie was first theatrically released in Japan and is especially popular in the United States, possessing the highest number of viewers among all territories worldwide.

Monsters ‘coming out’ at night is a timeless concept that kids still really love.” He adds: “The show provides the sort of fun and escapism that is very important for young audiences right now. Giving them some intriguing ideas about what really happens after school! It also adds to our fantastic line-up of movies and specials”.
