Furiki Wheels Rolls Down to Nat Geo Kids LatAm


Paris-based studio Gaumont has recently signed a deal with Nat Geo Kids for the slapstick animated series Furiki Wheels. Under the deal, Nat Geo Kids will be bringing Furiki Wheels to young viewers in Latin America. The show is slated to debut on the platform in September this year.

Furiki Wheels currently consists of 52 x 11 minute episodes targeted towards kids aged 6 to 11. It is described as a “fast and furry-ous” comedy revolving around an energetic sloth named Andre Furiki, whose family can’t keep up with his ridiculous hyperactivity, all made even more strange by the fact that sloths tend to spend their days being lethargic. Together with his animal friends at the racing academy, Andre gets into all sorts of scrapes and adventures.

Furiki Wheels was originally commissioned by France Télévisions and Disney XD (EMEA), was created and directed by the talented Frédéric Martin and developed and produced by Gaumont.

“Nat Geo Kids has in a short time established itself as the venue for kids in Latin America wanting exploration and adventure, and Furiki Wheels delivers all of this and more, making it the ideal home for this series,” commented Vanessa Shapiro, President, Worldwide TV Distribution and Co-Productions for Gaumont. “With our recently launched dedicated office in the region, we look forward to building a long-standing partnership with Nat Geo Kids.”

“In Nat Geo Kids we are thrilled to share with our audiences such an engaging content from Gaumont,” said Carmen Larios, SVP Content Strategy of National Geographic Partners in Latin America. “Furiki Wheels’ original characters and adventures are the perfect complement for our grid and will captivate children in Latin America.”
