Taffy Entertainment’s CGI series Code Lyoko, which takes place in a parallel universe, keeps scoring licensing deals in this one. EMI/Caroline Records (music CD), software publisher Mindscape (PC and Sony Playstation 2 games) and Headline Entertainment (t-shirts) have signed on to produce goods based on the property.
The CD is currently available on iTunes, while the games will be available in 2008 in the US, the UK and France, and the t-shirts will start appearing this month at specialty retailers across the US.
The new deals come on the heels of a successful in-store QSR initiative with Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s in the US and Singapore. The summer promotion kicked off on June 27 and featured 3.5 million Cool Kids Combos in four different Code Lyoko designs, in addition to POP displays at Carl’s Jr.
Heading into its fourth season, CGI/2-D animated hybrid Code Lyoko is produced by MoonScoop Productions in association with France 3 and Canal J. The show airs in on Cartoon Network US, France 3, Canal J and CiTV in the UK.
