Wibbly Pig Comes to the U.S.

9 Story Entertainment has partnered with NCircle Entertainment for home entertainment sales of its animated preschool comedy series Wibbly Pig in the U.S.

Wibbly Pig takes the daily routine of a young child and finds humor and fun in every part of it. 9 Story co-produced the series with Wish Films (UK), which was originally commissioned by the BBC’s Cbeebies, TVO, and Knowledge Network. The series is based on the Wibbly Pig books by Mick Inkpen. The series is currently seen in more than 100 countries and premieres on Sprout (U.S) during The Good Night Show on August 27.

Wibbly does what children do, from day-to-day activities like getting into bed, wrapping a present or climbing a tree, to fantasy play like meeting a giant or going to the moon. He moves seamlessly in and out of fantasy play, echoing the way children interact and play. The simplest tasks are turned into a comedy routine, which Wibbly shares with the viewer.
