Previously announced as Pikwik, the series follows Suki the hedgehog, Axel the raccoon, Tibor the hippo and Hazel the cat (the Pikwik Pack) as they deliver magical packages filled with love to the kind citizens of Pikwik. The series will air on Disney Junior in the U.S. beginning next year.
Scholastic will develop and produce storybooks, novelty, and activity books based on the characters and stories from the series.
“We’re incredibly proud to be working with a best-in-class partner like Scholastic,” says Jonathan Abraham, vice president of sales and business development at Guru Studio. “We’re seeing tremendous interest for Pikwik Pack from across the licensing world, and together with Disney Junior, Playmates Toys, and Scholastic we have an incredible foundation for the brand.”
Pikwik Pack will be previewed at MIP Junior with a world premiere screening set to take place on Oct. 12 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Cannes, France.
