UK-based producer and distributor Aardman has picked up international rights to Wuusywat, the first preschool show from UK comedy prodco Baby Cow (Gavin and Stacey).
The 52x5mins 2D series will debut on CBeebies this spring, and Aardman’s international sales arm will handle distribution.
Baby Cow is producing alongside UK-based Bigfatstudio and Canada-based Smiley Guy Studios.
The slapstick comedy follows a clever, curious cat who discovers new and interesting things through his innocent, uncoordinated clumsiness as he explores the seemingly infinite world of The Garden.
Aardman is starting the sales effort at Kidscreen in Miami this week.
Alix Wiseman, head of sales and acquisitions for Aardman, said: “It will come as no surprise to those familiar with [Baby Cow’s] work that they have produced such a joyful show with real funny bones. We know it will do well on pre-school platforms across the globe.”
