Alcuni shopping Mini Pet Pals in Cannes

Kids-logo-460_2mini pet palsThe sequel to the popular kids series Pet Pals will launch internationally at MIPTV next month.

Mini Pet Pals is produced by Italy’s Grupo Alcuni alongside Rai Fiction. The 2D preschool series follows the six characters from the first series – Top Hat, Nameless, Pio, Holly, Moby and Diva – but at a younger age.

The show has six different theme songs, each containing a riddle for preschoolers to solve.

Each episode takes place in a playground and ends in a lesson; the indispensable adult figure is represented by a wise tree that intervenes at the beginning and end of each episode and each time the Mini Pet Pals need help or advice.

The 52x6mins series is set in a playground and has lessons around discovery and emotions for young viewers.

The main Pet Pals, also from Treviso-based Alcuni and for Italian pubcaster Rai, has sold well internationally and also spawned a movie The Pet Pals and Marco Polo’s Code.

Portugal’s RTP and Russia’s CTC were among the buyers of the original series.
