Germany’s morgen studios has appointed Planeta Junior (Italy) and Nottingham Forest (Spain and Portugal) as its latest L&M and promotional agents for CGI-animated TV series Super 4 and the iconic Playmobil brand.
Commissioned by France Télévisions and produced by Method Animation and morgen studios, Super 4 (52 x 12 minutes) is an action-adventures series for kids five to nine inspired by the 40-year-old Playmobil brand. It tags along as Ruby the Pirate, Alex the Knight, Twinkle the Fairy and Agent Gene seek adventure on extraordinary islands in a multi-transformable vehicle.
The show debuted earlier this year and is currently airing on broadcasters including Neox Kidz, TV3 and Canal Panda in Spain, Cartoonito and Boomerang in Italy, and Canal Panda in Portugal.
Master toy partner Playmobil (naturally) plans to launch a line of figures and play sets based on the series this September. And in the meantime, Planeta Junior and Nottingham Forest are developing a lifestyle licensing program for the IP that gives its strong nostalgic appeal a modern touch.
