4Kids brings Penelope the blue koala to the world
Penelope is an adorable blue koala, just as eager to play and learn as she is to get into trouble. In an effort to spread Penelope’s animated series across the globe, 4Kids has recently made plans with the producer, Nippon Animation, signing the CG animated toon to a number of different locations. The show is based on the 48 book titles by Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben, published by Gallimard Jeunesse. In addition to Christmas and holiday specials, Penelope has also had her own musical which ran across Japan. Along with her family, friends, and her favorite pet toy Doudou, Penelope’s series is full of fun and adventure, and maybe soon to be headed to a TV or store near you!
