Christmas Special to be accompanied by a series of shorts starring Oliver, his family and friends.
"Where Oliver Fits: A Christmas Eve Tale"
Portfolio Entertainment, in partnership with the CMF/SRF Digital Animated Series Program and Corus Entertainment’s Treehouse TV, has produced a brand-new family Christmas Special, "Where Oliver Fits: A Christmas Eve Tale", and an accompanying series of 9 x 2.5’ shorts based on the hit Canadian children’s book "Where Oliver Fits by Cale Atkinson".
The heartfelt animated comedy special and series explore the challenges of not knowing where the young audiences fit in with their friends, and how to be themself. Portfolio Entertainment holds global distribution rights to both the special and the series that will be available for distribution in Spring 2021.
“As we move toward the world reopening and people around the world reuniting with friends and family, this is the perfect time to launch this hopeful new Holiday special about the joy of finding your place in a world filled with others who have their own unique tastes, interests, and talents,“ said Donnie MacIntyre, Portfolio’s VP of Sales & Business Development. “Oliver’s adventurous spirit and can-do attitude are just what kids will be looking for this holiday season.”
The series will also be accompanied by an online game titled “The Where Oliver Fits Puzzle Party”. Parents and teachers will be able to find a downloadable activity booklet on the Treehouse.com website. Along with a variety of activities and coloring pages, this booklet will be an excellent resource for parents to help guide discussions with their children about how to find your fit; just like Oliver!
