ZOONICORN SEASON 3 GETS GREENLIGHT
Zoonicorn LLC and Toonz Entertainment have inked a new deal to greenlight season three of the popular preschool series, with 52×7 new episodes now in development. The global preschool property currently streams worldwide, with consumer products rolling out for Q4, 2023 and into 2024.
Zoonicorn’s seven-minute episodes are produced by Toonz Entertainment and Zoonicorn LLC and distributed by Toonz Entertainment. Global licensing for the brand is shared by the two companies and headed by J’net Smith of All Art Licensing. With the new deal, Zoonicorn will have a total of 130 episodes available for global distribution.
Zoonicorn episodes can be found in the US on Peacock TV, Happy Kids TV and Kidoodle, as well on streaming services across the world. In 2024, Zoonicorn master toy licensee United Smile will begin to release a range of branded Zoonicorn products.
Leading licensee SRM Entertainment, Inc. recently released Zoonicorn branded products under its patented, proprietary Sip With Me ® children’s cup line of products and dinnerware. Based on initial marketplace response, the company has expanded into two new Zoonicorn branded tumbler sizes as well as backpacks of the 4 different Zoonicorns.
Licensee Jay@Play, which returns to the Zoonicorn family, is releasing a range of new Zoonicorn branded products under its popular Happy- Nappers line. The Happy Nappers sleep products will align seamlessly with the magical dreamland setting kids discover as they watch Zoonicorn.
Other new licensees include Storypod, which is launching a Zoonicorn Craftie in the US. Storypod’s yarn Crafties are adorable yarn characters that work with the award-winning audio-system to engage kids with multi-sensory stories and songs.
The Zoonicorns inhabit the dreams of young animals, taking them on amazing adventures to help learn important social-emotional skills with a focus on optimism and resilience. The Zoonicorns cleverly guide each dreamer through a whirlwind of fun-loving escapades and when the dream is over, the young animal wakes up feeling self-confident, with the decision-making skills necessary to overcome whatever challenges they are facing. At the heart of every solution is the one important truth—the power to solve any problem is inside of them.
Multi Emmy Award-winner Mark Zaslove (Winnie the Pooh, Lazytown, Bob The Builder) serves as show runner and lead writer/editor for the series. The music for the show has been composed by Emmy Award winning composer Rich Dickerson.
