Jetpack bolsters its catalog with two new animated shows

The animated 2d series "Alice’s Diary" and "Wussywat" will be presented to global buyers at MIPTV 2022.


"Alice’s Diary"


Jetpack Distribution has acquired the world-wide rights for upper preschool age 2D animated show "Alice’s Diary", a co-production between Portugal-based Sardinha Em Lata, Spain’s Alice AIE and Brazil’s Geppetto Films. And preschool 2D animated show "Wussywat the Clumsy Cat", a co-production between BAFTA award-winning combination Baby Cow Animation, Bigfatstudio and Smiley Guy Studios, Toronto.

The deal for "Alice’s Diary" comprises 52 x four-minute episodes centred around a little girl – Alice - who tries to understand the world through her own art. The show, currently in production, targets upper pre-school boys and girls. It is set to air on Portuguese public service broadcaster, Radio e Televisão Portuguesa (RTP), Spain’s national broadcaster RTVE and Disney Junior in Latin America. "Alice’s Diary" offers a magical insight into the individual thoughts of Alice, the adorable, quirky, and highly imaginative 6-year-old lead, as she invites viewers into her beautifully illustrated diary.

The deal for "Wussywat" comprises 52 x five-minute episodes. The hit show was originally commissioned by CBeebies and has aired in multiple territories on broadcasters including CBeebies, JIMJAM, WeKids, SVT, Mediacorp and RTVE. The show offers a stellar cast of comedy characters for two to four-year-olds and follows the slapstick antics of a curious, clumsy cat always on the lookout for fun new things to learn.

Jetpack Distribution CEO, Dominic Gardiner, says: “Alice’s unconventional and off the wall understanding of the world around her is delightfully relatable for children everywhere. This show is a funny, warm, and unique addition to our catalogue. The curiosity in Alice is both amusing and engaging for kids and parents.” He adds: “With a proven track record, 'Wussywat' is a cherished and established show that we are equally as happy to bring to new audiences. The feline hero’s clumsiness is loveable and funny, and the show expresses some great values. We’re excited to present both to buyers at MIPTV.”

Simon Quinn, "Wussycat" co-creator, adds: “'We are very excited to be working with the Kidscreen’s number one distribution team at Jetpack and are really looking forward to seeing 'Wussywat' finding more fans in new territories!’
