The hit stop-motion animated kids’ series Shaun the Sheep is getting ready to launch all over the Globe, with Aardman Rights announcing new global agent partnerships that will help reinforce Shaun the Sheep’s status as a global brand.
One of the new agents is Indonesia’s largest TV network, MNC, which has jumped on board as both broadcast partner and licensing agent for Shaun the Sheep, as well as its sister preschool series Timmy Time, both of which are proving to be popular in the Indonesian children’s market.
Other deals for Shaun the Sheep include Seena for North Africa, LDI in Israel, TFC in Japan, TLC in Italy, and Max Licensing in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Aardman has also renewed its agency deal with MBC in the Middle East.
“There are some very exciting plans for Shaun the Sheep over the next five years and we are proud to have an enviable network of agents to help us deliver them,” says Rob Goodchild, head of licensing at Aardman. “The brand is a global family favorite and we have worked hard to create a platform for strong and sustainable merchandise programs.”
