International Emmy-winning French animation producer-distributor Dandelooo has closed a deal with Korea’s Dream Factory Studio for the latter’s new CG preschool series “PongPong Dino.”

Targeted at 2-4-year-olds, “PongPong Dino” is a new IP produced by Dream Factory and directed by animator Tacken Chae. In the show, the audience is invited to a world where playing with your food is an important part of each meal. One of the series’ main objectives is to develop an interest in a wide variety of cuisines among its young viewers while dispelling misconceptions about some less popular foods.

Under the agreement, Dandelooo has picked up exclusive worldwide distribution rights, excluding China, South Korea and CIS, to 52 seven-minute episodes of “PongPong Dino.” The show joins other animated preschool content distributed by Dandeloo, including “Ernest and Celestine – The Collection,” spun off from the 2014 Oscar-nominated film; Annecy and Annie-winning animated special “Shooom’s Odyssey”; and 2023 Cartoon Forum standout “What’s Up Eesha?”

Dream Factory’s Heyo Jin Moon brokered the deal. In a release, the acquisitions manager explained: “Brace yourselves for a mouthwatering adventure filled with laughter, learning and tantalizing discoveries. Get ready to indulge in every moment of this delectable journey as we dive headfirst into a feast for the imagination with this fun and creative series, which kids will love.”

Dream Factory CEO Mac Kim added: “‘Pongpong Dino’ is a great piece of work that allows children to learn emotions and experiences while playing. It is an animation that parents can confidently show to children to convey a positive message that encourages autonomy: a message of ‘try anything’ instead of ‘don’t do this.’ Meet Pongpong Dino, who learns by playing joyfully with all senses.”

Dandelooo has had a busy start to 2024. In February, the company launched a dedicated feature animation division with three films already in its pipeline. Dandelooo Cinéma will focus on acquiring, developing, producing, and distributing high-quality kids and family films.
