eOne Unveils Broadcast And Licensing Plans For "Peppa Pig" In Japan

Entertainment One (eOne) continues to build on the success of Peppa Pig in Asia as the licensor has announced plans for the property in Japan. The multi award-winning animated show will be heading to TV screens in Japan when it debuts on TV Tokyo on Tuesday 10th October 2017, marking the latest rollout in the show’s push into Asia.


U.K.-listed eOne owns the property after acquiring a controlling stake in its producer Astley Baker Davis in 2015 for £140 million ($188 million). In Asia the show is on Nick Jr. and Viacom’s Voot SVOD platform, and in China on CCTV and several streaming platforms including iQIYI, and Youku.

eOne and its master licensee in the territory, SEGA Toys Co., is now readying the launch of a consumer products programme in Japan. The firm presented licensing opportunities to partners at a special brand presentation on Wednesday 27th September 2017, hosted by the British Ambassador to Japan at The British Embassy in Tokyo.

Publishing is poised to spearhead the licensing programme in early 2018 led by publishing partner, Froebel-kan, which will publish two titles in early spring 2018. From March 2018 a number of toys and games licensees will launch at selected retailers before expanding to mass distribution by the end of 2018. These include Hanayama, to distribute Character Options’ award-winning global master toy line, Bandai for wooden toys and puzzles, Sega Toys for standard plush and Meteor APAC, the sole distributor for Ty in Japan, to distribute Ty’s Beanie Babies® range. Joining these partners, Nippon Columbia will distribute DVD’s starting from 2018.

Andrew Carley, head of global licensing at eOne Family, commented: “Peppa Pig is enjoying tremendous ratings and retail success across Asia, so we’re incredibly excited to be bringing the brand to Japan. Asia is a key focus for our global licensing strategy so we’re keen to explore opportunities in this exciting new market and with top tier broadcast and licensing partners already on board, we have a strong foundation for future growth.”

Peppa Pig now airs throughout Asia with licensing and merchandise programmes established in India, Hong Kong, mainland China, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Taiwan. The property launched in Vietnam and Mongolia in late 2017. Broadcast platforms include Viacom18's VOOT Kids and Nick Jr. India, as well as CCTV, iQiYi, Youku, Tencent and LeEco.

Peppa has become a huge brand for younger viewers and also generates hundreds of millions of dollars in licensing and merchandising revenue.

Falls Creek And Nickelodeon Australia Team Up For Fun On The Slopes

Original Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand Press Release via Nickelodeon Trade:

FALLS CREEK AND NICKELODEON TEAM UP FOR FUN ON THE SLOPES



Falls Creek’s exceptional season continues to sizzle with the announcement of an industry-leading partnership with the number one kids’ entertainment brand in Australia, Nickelodeon.

In a Southern Hemisphere first, Nickelodeon has signed a two-year agreement as the official activation partner at Falls Creek, which will see the family favourite brand presenting special on-mountain experiences that will enhance the resort’s offering by integrating Nickelodeon character favourites.

The partnership will launch during the September school holidays with an exclusive SpongeBob SquarePants event series running from 28 September to 3 October 2017. Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol pups will then kick off the 2018 season by headlining a family-focused activation on the mountain in July with a schedule of activities on offer.

Further extending the relationship with the alpine resort, Nickelodeon will also take over Falls Creek’s renowned children’s snow sports school across the sixteen week season in 2018. Already regarded as Australia’s best ski school for children, this collaboration will take the experience to the next level by showcasing character favourites including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“Families are at the heart of everything we do and Falls Creek is delighted to be partnering with Nickelodeon to lead the way with this unique on-mountain experience. With the incredible snowfall we’re enjoying this September, this activation provides yet another reason for families to visit these school holidays and we now have even more to look forward to for Winter 2018!” said Falls Creek Ski Lifts, General Manager, Sharon Raguse.

Ben Cox, General Manager and Vice President of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand said, “Partnering with Australia’s family-favourite ski destination provides yet another exciting opportunity for families to interact with the Nickelodeon characters they know and love. Whether it’s on-air, online, in retail – or in this case – in the snow, Nickelodeon continues to connect with Australian families in new and exciting ways, and we’re delighted to bring this partnership to life with Falls Creek”.

Owned by global attraction operator, Merlin Entertainments Group, Falls Creek is Victoria’s largest alpine resort and widely regarded as Australia’s most-loved family ski destination.

Merlin Entertainments’ Divisional Director – Australia and New Zealand, Rob Smith, noted, “This collaboration with Nickelodeon, another global leader in the entertainment industry, is a very exciting milestone for Merlin Entertainments. Falls Creek is one of our most popular family attractions in Australia and our investment in this partnership confirms our ongoing commitment to delivering unique and memorable experiences”.

Major Spoilers About The Finale Of "Power Rangers Ninja Steel" Released (Updated 9/30)

NOTE: This post contains several spoilers about upcoming story lines on Power Rangers Ninja Steel. Please click here to return to NickALive!'s homepage if you wish to avoid them.


Power Rangers Ninja Steel’s finale is not set to air in the United States until December 2017, but international websites have begun to leak some of the major developments which will take place in the season’s final episode.

Gulli, a French TV website, has posted detailed spoilers of the accounts which will take place in the show’s finale. And apparently, two new Power Rangers will debut – Dane (Mike Edward), the long lost father of Brody the Red Ranger (William Shewfelt), and Mick (Kelson Henderson), the team’s humble mentor.

Both Dane and Mick will become Red Rangers, bringing a total of three Red Rangers to the team, as seen in the screenshot below from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, the Japanese Sentai season fueling Power Rangers Ninja Steel’s English adaptation.


Fans can read a summary of Gulli’s account of what takes place in Power Rangers Ninja Steel’s finale below.

"In the finale, Galvanax will use a powerful magnet designed by Victor and Monty to steal the Ninja Power Stars and give him final control over the entire universe. But as Galvanax’s evil plan inches towards success, Brody opts to destroy his own Ninja Power Star rather than let it fall into the hands of evil.

In a strange twist of events that are likely to make more sense when the episode airs, the Ninja Nexus Prism arrives on the scene and three Red Rangers emerge from within – Brody, his father Dane, and his mentor Mick.

The three Red Rangers are able to defeat Galvanax, with a little help from Madame Odius who betrays her evil master, and the world is saved…for now."

Dane’s return will likely come as no surprise, as many fans have long suspected Brody’s missing father would eventually return. The true surprise is likely Mick becoming a Red Ranger, as longtime Power Rangers actor Kelson Henderson now joins the elite ranks of those to become numerous Power Rangers (Kelson Henderson also portrayed Boom, the Orange Ranger in Power Rangers S.P.D.).

Power Rangers Ninja Steel’s finale, which as of this writing still has no title, will adapt source footage from the finale of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger. This could mean that Dane and Mick will only become one-time Red Rangers, and won’t morph again after this episode. It could also indicate that Galvanax (Richard Simpson) will be killed off for good as the show transitions to Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel in 2018.

Should that happen, who will take over the role of the show’s primary villain in Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel? While Madame Odius (Jacque Drew) is guaranteed to stick around, fans can click here to recap an earlier hint which may have been dropped.

Spain is expected to air Power Rangers Ninja Steel’s finale as soon as September 17, 2017, at which point all of the finale’s secrets will leak online, including clips and photos.

UPDATE: Below is what fans can expect in the epic finale of Power Rangers Ninja Steel, "Galvanax Attacks", set to premiere on Nick USA in December 2017! Spoilers from Power Rangers NOW, via ComicBook.com, via The Christian Post:

The Power Rangers stand outside of the school to fight Galvanax, but the villain uses a custom magnet to steal the Ninja Power Stars away from the Rangers, all except for Brody. While he manages to destroy the device, Galvanax and the Kudabots take off with the other 5 Rangers. Brody retreats alongside Mick.

Cosmo Royale holds the kidnapped Rangers while Madame Odius reveals the device Victor and Monty created for her, a giant ship sized version of the magnet Galvanax used against the Rangers.

Brody and Mick meet Galvanax once again at the quarry, where the villain has brought the other Rangers as bargaining chips for Brody's Ninja Power Star. Brody recalls a previous time when his father destroyed his Ninja Power Star to keep it out of Galvanax's hands, and Brody follows suit. He slashes and destroys the Red Ninja Power Star, but with an unexpected result.

The Ninja Power Star's destruction causes the Ninja Nexus Prism to show up, and it contains the three pieces of Brody's Red Ninja Power Star. Suddenly those fragments shoot out and knock down Kudabots left and right, freeing the other Rangers. Those fragments then become three different Red Rangers, revealing themselves to be Brody, Mick, and Dane underneath.

The Rangers unite to take on Galvanax, but the fight takes a turn when Galvanax turns his Zord Power Stars into liquid form and drinks it, becoming even more powerful. Meanwhile, Madame Odius activates her supersized magnet to bring the Ninja Steel Rangers to the ship, but because of the Zord Power Star liquid he drank, Galvanax is sucked up as well.

It's revealed that the traitor was really Odius, not Ripcon, but Galvanax doesn't have much time to deal with the new revelation as the giant Ninja Steel asteroid rams into the ship's side, destroying it and breaking the magnet's hold. It is assumed that Cosmo Royale and Madame Odius were killed in the explosion, but Galvanax is still very much alive.

The Rangers then turn their attention to Galvanax and finally succeed in bringing him down. The only problem is that the Ninja Nexus Prism was destroyed, and Mick informs the other Rangers that without a Prism, the Ninja Power Stars can't exist. As the Ninja Power Stars dissolve in front of them, Mick assures the team all will be okay, as the Rangers succeeded in their ultimate mission.

Mick departs to see his parents again, while the other Rangers sit around a campfire, singing the Romero family song. Things don't end there though, as a cutaway to space reveals that Madame Odius survived the spaceship explosion, and seems to be returning for Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel.

No airdate for the finale (stateside) has been revealed, but you can find screenshots from the episode on Power Rangers NOW!

Check out Craig's latest super sneak-peek, featuring Arnold and Helga in the jungle, below, and let NickALive! know in the comments what you think is happening in the scene!:

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie takes the kids on the field trip of a lifetime: action packed and full of adventure!

It all starts when Arnold and his classmates take a trip to San Lorenzo, South America, which, coincidentally, is the last place Arnold’s parents were seen! Their trip takes a turn when pirates kidnap Arnold and his friends! From there it’s one jungle hazard after another, and the gang must put their heads together to get out of danger. As the leader of the journey, Arnold must make sure he and his friends survive safely, all while working towards a reunion he’s dreamt of his whole life!

Spin Master Announces Updated 2017 PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour Schedule


From the top rated franchise PAW Patrol® comes the free, country-wide PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour featuring the life-size PAW Patroller and your favorite PAW Patrol pups



TORONTO, September 28, 2017 – Spin Master Corp. (TSX: TOY), a leading global children’s entertainment company, announced today an updated schedule for the remaining stops of its third annual PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, a multi-city, life-size activation that successfully blends the award-winning toy line with the top-rated preschool property produced by Spin Master Entertainment and broadcast on Nickelodeon. The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will continue to travel across North America through October, allowing kids to connect with their favorite PAW Patrol characters through an immersive PAW Patrol-branded experience.


The updated schedule includes new information on metro area stops in and around Atlanta, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles.

The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Tour is free to the public and is making stops at select Walmart, Toys“R”Us and Target retail locations in 13 different markets. During full activations, kids can explore the inside of the life-size PAW Patroller and meet their favorite PAW Patrol characters, as well as re-enact their own rescue missions through an interactive play experience featuring the new Sea Patrol theme. Visitors can also receive a memorable photo and limited edition giveaways.

Friday Tour stops are partial activations with character photo opportunities and play tables only.

“As we continue to build an evergreen property, there are multiple touch points when telling a story through a franchise such as PAW Patrol,” said Ben Gadbois, Spin Master’s Global President and COO. “There is a strong collaboration between our Entertainment team and Global Marketing team to ensure we’re connecting with children through positive and meaningful messages, and with the PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour we are physically bringing the magic to life.”


The life-size activation also has a dedicated area showcasing Spin Master’s newest entertainment property, Rusty Rivets. Kids can combine, design and “rustify” inside Rusty’s life-size Rivet Lab and meet the heroes from the show – Rusty and Ruby.

The series’ unique blend of problem-solving skills, cool vehicles and cute doggy humor has propelled it to become TV’s number-one preschool series. PAW Patrol made its U.S. debut on Nickelodeon in August 2013 and has been picked up for a fifth season during which the heroic pack of pups – Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest and Tracker – will take to the high seas for Sea Patrol adventures where they’ll meet a scallywag of a pirate and his dachshund pup pal. Elements of the fifth season will be incorporated heavily throughout the 2017 PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour, including an immersive Sea Patrol experience, a Roll Patrol themed track, consumer-generated photo opportunities, character appearances, a Lookout Tower and HQ experience, interactive displays, a product play area and much more.

Pre-registration is highly encouraged and walk-ups are more than welcome, but admittance cannot be guaranteed due to the growing popularity of the Tour.

Keith Dawkins To Leave Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon veteran and TeenNick and Nicktoons Executive Vice President (EVP) Keith Dawkins has accepted a new job as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The First Tee, a nonprofit youth development org founded by the US Professional Golf Association (PGA).


The kids network has confirmed that after Dawkins leaves next week, his role will be temporarily filled by NickSplat and Nick Sports Senior Vice President (SVP) of marketing Laura Lundgren.

In his new job, which reflects Dawkins’ passion for sports and pro-social causes, Dawkins will succeed long-time topper Joe Louis Barrow, Jr., who had announced his retirement.

Dawkins, a valued Nickelodeon executive, was promoted from SVP and GM (General Manger) of TeenNick and Nicktoons to EVP in late 2015, where he led operations for the tween- and teen-targeted networks. In his previous role as SVP and GM, he developed a number of partnerships with companies including Marvel Animation, FremantleMedia, Lionsgate, LEGO and the National Football League (NFL).

The ex-Fox News Channel producer and VH1 exec joined Nickelodeon in 2003 as the first-ever GM of Nicktoons and went on to shape the TeenNick, Nick Jr. and NickMusic channels. He was also responsible for launching and overseeing TeenNick’s NickSplat (formally The Splat) and NickToon’s NickSports programming blocks.

The Splat launched in September 2015 as a multi-screen content destination for Millennials that also includes seven social media platforms and a dedicated website featuring the most popular Nick content from the '90s and beyond.

NickSports, meanwhile, is a primetime programming block that features original and acquired long- and short-form content from professional sports athletes and leagues like MLB, MLS, NASCAR, NFL and PGA.

Dawkins’ departure comes amid a brand and ratings resurgence for Nickelodeon, which notched nine straight quarters as the leading kidsnet with kids ages two to 11 and two to five, as well as four straight quarters on top with kids ages six to 11, according to Nielsen ratings.

Cyma Zarghami, President of Viacom’s Nickelodeon Group, announced Dawkins’s departure in a company memo, calling him “an expert advocate, partner and leader for Nickelodeon.”

Here is Zarghami’s email:

I want to share with you the news that Keith Dawkins is leaving his position at Nickelodeon, literally for greener pastures: he is taking on the role of CEO of The First Tee, a nonprofit youth development organization founded by the Professional Golf Association (PGA). He will officially leave his position here next week, and his new job starts mid-October.

In his time here, Keith has been an expert advocate, partner and leader for Nickelodeon since he joined us in 2003 from VH1 as our first-ever General Manager of Nicktoons. His responsibilities quickly grew to include the TeenNick and NickMusic channels; and he launched the NickSplat and Nick Sports programming initiatives–which have been incredibly exciting extensions of our brand.

Keith has an ability to completely immerse himself in every new project and opportunity. He builds teams that share his same passion, and he makes sure the work is fun and rewarding along the way. And if you’ve worked with him in any capacity, you know it is no secret that his personal passion is the world of sports, and his heart has always been with pro-social causes.

So while we will certainly miss him in the day-to-day, I understand and support his decision. And it’s not really good-bye: We will actually continue to work with him given our ongoing partnership with the PGA and how The First Tee intersects with our own public affairs and sports initiatives.

I will miss Keith personally, very much. He has been a good friend and sounding board over the years and has brought a valuable point of view to the table.
The departure of a friend isn’t ever easy, but this transition comes at an especially strong time for us. Our brand is strong, and our work to grow beyond television is paying off. We are celebrating nine straight quarters at number one with Kids 2-11 and Kids 2-5; four straight quarters on top with Kids 6-11; the number-one hits in every demo; renewed creative energy and momentum across the entire organization; big steps in digital; a global consumer products strategy; more real-world experiences; and virtually a new generation of leadership at Nick guiding us toward even bigger success.

In the interim period following Keith’s departure, Laura Lundgren, SVP of Marketing for our niche nets, NickSplat and Nick Sports, will lead the charge while we solidify plans and structure moving forward.

Please join me in wishing him all the best, and let’s thank him for his many contributions to Nickelodeon.

–Cyma
