Nickelodeon Italy (Italia) has acquired the rights to the popular Italian animated series OPS – What an hOPSrible pack!, and will premiere the all new show on Monday 17th February 2020 at 20:00! Following launch, new episodes of the series, locally titled O.P.S. – Orrendi per Sempre, will continue to air weekdays at 20:00 on Nick Italia.


Did a small figure just whiz past you at a traffic light, racing on squeaky metal legs? Has the skeleton of a Velociraptor puppy, followed by a deathly pale little girl, crossed the street in front of you? Have you come across a boy with a scarred face playing a heart-rending tune on his harmonica that moved you to tears? Or did the girl who just crossed the road make your car horn, radio and windscreen wipers go nuts? Don’t worry! You’re not going crazy. You’ve just come across the ‘OPS’ kids: the wildest, most grotesque and entertaining bunch of friends ever!

OPS – What a Hopsrible Pack is a 52×12’ animated series based on Italian book series Orrendi Per Sempre, which follows the adventures of a group of friends known as the Hopsribles.

The series is based on the book series Orrendi per sempre, created by Aquilino and published by Giunti Editore. The book series narrates the adventures of the Hopsribles, an amazingly irresistible group of friends united by a strange stroke of fate. They are sincere, naive and altruistic and maybe a little strange, but their friendship is something special. Mysterious and cloaked in a veiled halo of terror they take on, head first and always united, the growing pains, the misunderstandings, the practical jokes, the jealousies, the angry fits and the magic moments that make friends – true friends – say “forever”.

The 2D animated comedy series is targeted towards kids aged between 6-10 years old. The show was presented at MIPTV 2019, where it received a very good response.

The series is produced by Milan-based prodcos Studio Campedelli and Movimenti Production, Indian animation studio Cosmos Maya (under the Cosmos Animation banner, Motu Patlu), and Paris-based Paris Samka Productions, with the participation of Italy's Rai Ragazzi, part of public broadcaster Rai TV.

Madrid-based integrated brand management specialist Brands & Rights 360 (B&R360), as the show's international distributor, handles all rights for the series worldwide, apart from in Asia where Cosmos-Maya handles the rights. B&R360 also distributes Atchoo!, also from Studio Campedelli, Cosmos Maya and Rai Ragazzi, alongside Florentine toon house Cartobaleno, which airs on Nickelodeon channels internationally.
