Pukeko Pictures delivers the WotWots season 2

Pukeko Pictures delivers the WotWots season 2

What? WHAT?! No, no no… it’s “WotWot” as in “The WotWots!” The popular toon about SpottyWot and DottyWot, a pair of alien creatures, is now headed toward a second season, courtesy of Pukeko Pictures. Developed at Richard Taylor’s Weta Workshop, the WotWots launched in 2009, and have picked up steam ever since — not unlike the character’s steam-powered spaceship, that landed within a space zoo. So whether you’re watching on Canada’s Treehouse TV, or The Hub in the U.S., or in any one of the other 87 territories around the world, be sure to welcome in the brand new season later this year!

Hit Entertainment and Nelvana Studio introduce Mike the Knight

When Alexander Bar realized there wasn’t enough animated attention being paid to castles, dragons, magic, and the whole world of adventures, he came up with the perfect solution: Mike the Knight. Bringing the concept to Hit Entertainment, who later joined forces with Nelvana Studio, have helped bring the idea to life, as they proudly develop the CG animated series. The toon is set in the land of Glendragon, following the tales of the heroic knight, who must deal with dragons and princesses and regular medieval life through the eyes of a kid. Treehouse has already signed on to air the show next year, with CBeebies soon to follow. Check out some renders and the full press release

The iconic animated diva, created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner, raked in about $2.5 billion in sales, this year alone. That could buy a lot of birthday presents!
