Kidscreen » Archive » UYoung and Cheeky Little Media partner up | Cheeky Little | Scoop.it
Chinese kids company UYoung Media and Australian prodco Cheeky Little Media have joined together in an expanded licensing, distribution and c0-development pact. Going forward, UYoung will distribute all of Cheeky Little Media’s future content within Mainland China and manage L&M rights to the company’s IPs in the region. (UYoung has already been distributing Cheeky Little Media’s Kazoops (pictured) and Bottersnikes & Gumbles in China.) The deal will also see the companies co-develop new properties for both Chinese and global markets. Kazoops launched on major VOD platforms in China last October and will bow on CCTV Kids in 2018. The animated series also airs internationally on CBeebies (the UK), ABC Kids (Australia) and Netflix (the US and Canada). Bottersnikes & Gumbles, meanwhile, is a co-production with UK-based CAKE and Australia’s Mighty Nice. It is set to air in China this year. Cheeky Little Media is not UYoung’s first Western co-pro partner. The company has collaborated with New York-based Little Airplane on P. King Duckling, which became the first-ever Chinese cartoon to air on Disney Junior in the US. UYoung is also working with Ireland’s Sixteen South on a series that is currently in development. In 2016, UYoung Media opened an L.A. office for subsidiary UYoung Entertainment.

TV review: Bottersnikes & Gumbles (CBBC)

TV review: Bottersnikes & Gumbles (CBBC) | Cheeky Little | Scoop.it

I happen to think that many things were better about life in the olden days, but I am perfectly clear that one thing that is much the better is children’s television. Yes, The Magic RoundaboutRoobarb and Custard and Trumpton are fondly recalled as classics (and deservedly so). But there was awful lot of dross too, and such was the state of the national economy back then that we couldn’t afford to make many of our own animations, so more and more of our cartoon series came in from America, with a steadily declining level of quality. The progress from Fred Flintstone to Skeletor was a dispiriting one.

Anyway, this is all a roundabout way of complimenting the makers of Bottersnikes and Gumbles. These are derived from the books by SA Wakefield, and are better adapted than most other exercises of this nature. Bottersnikes are superbly rendered lizardly creatures that are the bogeymen of the show, a bit like Momentum in the Labour Party; Gumbles are apparently normal, but hopelessly optimistic, like Brexiteers. The stories are short and sweet and the attention to detail is remarkable. I never thought I would live to see such a perfect recreation of a Bedford CF ice cream van, complete with “Greensleeves” playing out of it.  A nice reminder of the olden days, that.
