L.A.-based companies Lawless Entertainment and Toon Googles have reached a distribution deal for 10 episodes of animated preschool series Suzy’s Zoo: A Day with Witzy.
Toon Goggles will stream the two-minute eps, which are animated using watercolor-like illustrations, on its family entertainment on-demand platform, which showcases animated and live-action content through its app for smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.
Co-produced by Suzy’s Zoo Film Partners and the Tokyo Broadcasting System, Suzy’s Zoo: A Day with Witzy follows fluffy duckling Witzy, who spends his days hanging out in the sunshine with his various animal friends.
Created in 1968 by San Diego artist Suzy Spafford, the Suzy’s Zoo brand already boasts a large consumer products program that includes infant apparel, greeting cards, bedding, books, tableware and games.
In June, Lawless and Italy’s Mondo TV partnered on a 52 x 11-minute 2D-animated series based on the Adventures in Duckport characters from the Suzy’s Zoo brand.
