Canadian Animation studio Squeeze has shopped its shortform animated series Cracké to Viacom18 in India, which will put it out on the local Nickelodeon channel and the Voot streaming service.
The deal brings the show’s reach to 185 countries, and follows a recent launch in EMEA.
Nina Elavia Jaipuria, head of kids entertainment at Viacom18, said: “Kids in India love comedy and Cracké, with its short duration format, unique animation style and adorable characterisation, is sure to provide them with an immersive experience.”
Denis Doré, Squeeze’s president and co-founder added: “It’s very rewarding to realise that Cracké will make kids laugh around the world on a renowned and leading TV network such as Nickelodeon.”
The 52 x one-minute show follows an anxious ostrich dad and his eight runaway eggs. It is co-produced with Canada’s Teletoon, where it currently airs, along with the Canada Media Fund, the Quebec Refundable Tax Credit for Film and Television Production, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, the Bell Fund and the National Bank.
