Animania HD takes ‘Nanigugu’

Series sold by Ypsilon

BARCELONA — U.S. HD cable channel Animania HD, owned by Rainbow Media, has licensed toon series “Nanigugu,” from Spain’s Ypsilon Films, a new Spanish sales and distribution company.

Produced by Barcelona-based Pataboom, which was set up in 2006, “Nanigugu,” a preschool 3-D series, turns on a little Martian, Nani, who’s trying to communicate with the earthling toddler Gugu by shaping clouds.

“Nanigugu” was created by Dani Regadera and has entered production. Series will be ready to delivery in spring 2009.

“The U.S. market is not easy, but this series has a didactic content, which isn’t that common, and a very versatile format,” said Ypsilon Films director Roberto Mitrani.

In another Ypsilon sale in the run-up to Mip TV, Disney Spain has just licensed the series “7Pets,” which was also recently bought by U.S. Spanish-language V-Me network.

The seven-minute episodes combine puppets, live action and 3-D animation to tell the adventures of seven pets. Toon skein is produced by Pets Ent., whose creative team was responsible for the visual effects on hit Spanish movie “Mortadelo & Filemon: The Big Adventure.”

At next week’s Cannes Mip TV mart, Ypsilon will present “Nanigugu” and “7Pets” episodes, as well as live-action musical shows series “The Magic of the Ki-Kids.”
