Tee and Mo secures second series, as licensing programme also grows

Preschool show Tee and Mo will be returning to CBeebies and TVO in spring 2022, while the licensing programme is also gaining momentum thanks to Fryday Brands.

The show – which is produced and animated in the UK and Isle of Man by Plug-in Media and Flix Facilities – will return with 20 new seven-minute episodes.

The first series of Tee and Mo, along with its nine animated song videos and 11-minute musical special Big Boy Boots, have continued to perform well for a dual audience of preschoolers and their caregivers on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.

The son and mother team use teamwork and creative thinking to resolve life’s little challenges. Series two will continue to build on this theme and also introduce new characters Bryn and Becca, plus new locations, the beach and the jungle gym.

In addition to flagship UK broadcast partner, CBeebies, the series also now airs on more than 20 broadcast networks worldwide.

Its videos have also generated 285 million+ combined views on YouTube, with a particularly strong reach in the US and India.

The growing CP and licensing programme, meanwhile, has seen recent deals with Immediate Media and tonies.

The Tee and Mo direct to consumer shop, managed directly by Plug-in Media, is also being expanded with new products including pyjamas and t-shirts, while a number of further products are also in development including stationery and paper goods.

Val Fry of Fryday Brands is also exploring toys and publishing.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing new episodes of Tee and Mo to its growing global audience and that broadcasters have been so delighted by its enduring popularity and delightful, light-hearted storylines,” commented md Juliet Tzabar. “Establishing our consumer products offering alongside the new series is key to building the brand’s popularity and we look forward to broadening our portfolio of licensees over the coming months and developing toys for launch at retail.

“It’s what parents have been asking for, and we can’t wait to give them all this and more over the course of the next 18 months.”
