ANIMATION MAGAZINE By: Ramin Zahed - October 29, 2013
9 Story Entertainment has landed multiple sales of its new animated preschool series, Peg + Cat (80 x 11′). The show has been acquired by ABC TV Australia, HOP (Israel), Mini-Mini (Poland) and E-Junior (UAE).
Created by Emmy Award winning creative director, animator and children’s writer Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster), Peg + Cat is animated and distributed by 9 Story for producer The Fred Rogers Company and PBS Kids. The series, which debuted on PBS Kids in September, follows an adorable spirited little girl, Peg, and her sidekick, Cat, as they encounter unexpected problems that require fun and creative solutions. In order to solve the problems, Peg and her cat must add, subtract and apply basic arithmetic. Their adventures take them to historical far-away lands, art centers in bustling metropolises and the colorful cosmos, all the while demonstrating that it’s never too early to start learning the magic of numbers.
With one of North America’s largest animation studios based in Toronto, 9 Story has over 200 creative and production staff, and has produced over 800 half hours of quality children’s and family programming, seen on some of the most respected children’s channels around the world across multiple platforms. The company’s distribution arm 9 Story Enterprises represents a growing catalogue which includes brands such as Arthur, Wibbly Pig, Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars, Wild Kratts and Almost Naked Animals in addition to new series such as Numb Chucks, Camp Lakebottom, Cache Craze, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Nerds and Monsters.
