In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design speaks with Michael Goodman, founder and head of licensing at the MLGPC Licensing Agency.

Goodman is an expert in prospecting new intellectual properties (IP) with undeniable mass-market appeal. Through MLGPC, he has identified, sold, and licensed IP to industry leaders such as Spin Master, Nelvana, Super7, Saban Brands, Funko, Goliath Games, Scholastic, and many more.

Albritton discusses with Goodman his early days in the industry and the process of bringing back the classic Monchhichi property. The duo also looks at how vintage brands continue to fuel the retro trend that connects across multiple generations and the prospects for the future from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, G.I. Joe, and beyond. Additionally, Goodman offers behind-the-scenes insight on several new viral brands — such as Fugglers and WerePups — that he has been involved with.
