The animation studio behind the Irish Folklore Trilogy — WolfWalkers, The Secret of Kells, and Song of the Sea — is on the hunt for new licensing partners.
Cartoon Saloon is setting up shop at Brand Licensing Expo (BLE) to showcase its latest preschool properties, Silly Sundays (out in 2023) and Puffin Rock — The Movie alongside existing titles from its portfolio. The company is seeking licensing partners across toys, games and puzzles, crafts, publishing, apparel, accessories, and more.
“This is going to be an exciting BLE for Cartoon Saloon,” says Brian Tyrrell, general manager, licensing and merchandise, Cartoon Saloon. “In the preschool space, we’re presenting for the first time our newest animated series, Silly Sundays, for which we’ve already had many discussions and seen huge interest since we announced our deal with WarnerMedia Kids & Family for the series to air on the new Cartoonito preschool block on HBO Max and Cartoon Network along with RTE in Ireland. We’re also proud to debut Puffin Rock —The Movie, based on the award-winning hit series, which will debut in 2022.”
Cartoon Saloon already inked a deal for the Irish Folklore Trilogy with Gkids and Shout! Factory to release a 4-disc Blu-ray Box Set in North America. All three films will be released with new bonus features and will come in eco-friendly packaging.
