Mondo TV Suisse’s new 3D-animated series YooHoo & Friends is at the center of a global licensing and merchandising deal with Panini.
Under the agreement, Panini will produce branded stickers, trading cards and photocards, which will launch at retail in early 2018.
Bowing this year, YooHoo & Friends is based on the Aurora World line of plush toys, 80 million of which have been sold since their global debut in 2007.
The series follows five friends who help endangered animals, and is co-produced by Mondo TV Suisse and Aurora World Corporation. Previous seasons of YooHoo & Friends featured 2D animation.
