Global broadcast partners line up for new Hello Kitty animated series

Paris-based international distributor Kids First has secured a host of new global broadcast partners for Hello Kitty: Super Style – an original 3D animated children’s programme based on Sanrio’s pop culture icon.

The 52 x 11-minute 3D animated show is co-developed with Amazon Kids+ with the first episodes hitting screens in December 2022.

The series has been picked up by Viaplay for Scandinavia, Baltics, Poland and Benelux; Super RTL in Germany; CBC Canada, Canal + Ethiopia and Poland,  plus Canal Panda in Portugal.

The linear broadcasters join Canal+ and M6 in France, RAI YOYO in Italy, Tiny Pop in the UK, Discovery Kids for Latin America, RTS for Switzerland and Hop for Israel, which have already acquired the show.

“Hello Kitty is an iconic brand which resonates with an international audience and is much loved across generations,” commented Philippe Alessandri, president of Kids First. “Following its successful launch on Amazon Kids+ at the end of last year, we are delighted new partners have signed up to take this series with universal humour which appeals to both boys and girls to an even broader global audience.”

In the series, Hello Kitty is the ‘friendliest face’ in Cherry Town – a small-town hero who will stop at nothing to help a friend in need and get them smiling.
