Snipple Originals announces a brand new 2D animated comedy "The Woohoos!" (52x7') that shows nature that children recognise, and celebrates the joy of discovering the outside world. Produced by Snipple Originals in the UK, the show has been commissioned by Milkshake! and will hit UK screens in 2025. Jetpack Distribution has taken the international distribution rights outside the UK.
The gentle, warm and character driven series aims to delight and entertain young children. Each episode brings an exciting ‘Ooo” moment, a new discovery that needs explaining, and then when the characters find the answer they say “Woohoo.” Kids can “Ooo” and “Woohoo” while watching their new friends pack their day full of adventure, making each other laugh as they all explore the Woohoos homeland of Wise Island together.
The series is directed by Kitty Taylor, executive produced by Snipple Originals Director, Karina Stanford-Smith and produced in Snipple’s Animation studio.
Karina Stanford Smith, says: “Through this series, we realise the magic of - first and foremost - making preschoolers giggle.” She adds: “It’s pure heartfelt entertainment with nuggets of soft learning. A beautiful series about discovery, imagination, laughter and of course friendship. We are taking viewers on a journey with our little characters to reach the “Woohoo” moments together.”
Gillian Calvert Ridge, Jetpack Distribution’s Global Distribution Director - Acquisitions and Development, says: “At MIPCOM this Autumn, we are looking forward to presenting this show to international buyers. With the universal themes of comedy, discovery and friendship and the interactive moments to ‘Woohoo’ along to, it’s perfect for screens around the world.”
Louise Bucknole, General Manager, Kids and Family, UK & Ireland, Paramount comments: “We know that kids love to explore nature and the outdoors and we want Milkshake! shows to reflect and inspire them in that journey in a fun and accessible way - 'The Woohoos!' perfectly encapsulates this. Those “Ooo” moments are a nod to the rollercoaster of amazing discovery and learning that preschool kids constantly navigate – that moment of realisation when the penny drops! We can’t wait to see this brilliant show brought to life on Milkshake! with the curious and loveable Woohoos!.”
