Nelvana to Co-Produce and Distribute 'Best & Bester'; Expected to Premiere in October 2022

Gigglebug Entertainment's new show will be co-produced by the Canadian prodco and Eye Present, with Nelvana also handling distribution.


Toronto’s Nelvana has signed on to co-produce and distribute animated series Best & Bester, created by Gigglebug Entertainment’s Joonas Utti and Anttu Harlin, Kidscreen reports.

The project already has London-based Eye Present on board as a co-producer and was pre-sold to Nickelodeon International last year. New partner Nelvana will now handle international distribution, excluding the UK and the Nordics, where Eye Present and Gigglebug are selling the series. For its part, Gigglebug has locked in Nordic pubcasters YLE (Finland), DR (Denmark) and NRK (Norway). Nelvana parentco Corus Entertainment’s kids network has also picked up rights to air the show in Canada. No release dates are announced yet, but the partners are working towards a spring 2022 delivery.

Currently in production, the 52 x 11-minute series takes the idea of choices and comparisons to ridiculous extremes when siblings Best and Bester transform themselves into various objects to decide which is the best of all time.

Nelvana will direct and produce the animation, music and post-production, with creative editorial input from head of development Athena Georgaklis. Scripting, storyboards, animatics and voice recording will be handled by Eye Present in the UK. And art direction, design, rigging, layout and backgrounds are Gigglebug’s purview in Finland.

The series is directed by Kitty Taylor and produced by Georgia Dussaud. Harlin and Utti will executive produce for Gigglebug, along with Genevieve Dexter and Jules Coke for Eye Present, and Colin Bohm and Pam Westman for Nelvana.

Gigglebug has been busy recently, having also secured a greenlight from Disney EMEA for its co-pro with Zodiak, The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti. This 50 x 11-minute animated series will launch in 2022 as well.

Partner Potential: Co-Productions in Flux

Serious Lunch’s Genevieve Dexter, Guru Studio’s Frank Falcone, Toon2Tango’s Ulli Stoef and Boat Rocker’s Jon Rutherford discussed how the co-production model is evolving at the TV Kids Festival today.

Anna Carugati, group editorial director of TV Kids and World Screen, moderated the wide-ranging panel discussion about how co-productions are moving beyond the standard kids’ model of two commissioning broadcasters, tax breaks, additional funding and presales to close the gap. Dexter, founder and CEO of distribution outfit Serious Lunch and production company Eye Present, said that the arrival of the streaming platforms has led to an evolution in that model, with those SVOD services often seeking all global rights.

“The problem is you don’t have any rights after you’ve done that,” Dexter said. “I’m still really keen on the old-school model because I like to own the intellectual property and to also keep the distribution rights. If you go with a VOD model, there’s not a lot left after that contract. So, I’m still keen on the two-broadcaster international co-production, but I’m finding that there are more co-producers required now to try to make the cake fit. You used to be able to do it with two countries and increasingly, you’re doing it with three. We’re doing U.K., Finland, Canada and U.K., Ireland, Belgium. I don’t seem to be able to do it with two.”

Falcone, the president and executive creative director of Guru Studio, picked up on Dexter’s comments about the streamers, adding, “VODs have unleashed a lot of creativity in their commissioning, but conversely by taking back rights, they’re not betting on the longevity of a show as much because it’s not as important to them. For us, we have been actively seeking new models because we’ve done a fair share of work with VODs, but find that their commitment to a series is not the same as when you gather some broadcasters. So developing a series and giving that series longevity is one of our key strengths. It becomes challenging when you know you’re just one more show in the mix to retain a subscription base.”

He added, “We’re trying to find new models to produce shows that aren’t as dependent on the big players. We’re hopeful that with VODs seeing new competition in the market that those rights will start to become available again.”

The panelists were asked if co-productions are being impacted by broadcasters limiting their budgets due to ad revenue shortfalls. “The pay-TV broadcasters’ money has been reducing slowly,” Serious Lunch’s Dexter said. “But that has been going on for some time. It’s interesting that the revenues go down despite the fact that everybody is watching television. I think it’s an overall trend, but I’m not seeing the money coming from AVOD yet. With SVOD we used to say, ‘We’ll do the SVOD deals in the summer because they’re not worth anything!’ [Laughs] And now we’re saying, ‘Get around to the AVOD deals when you’ve got some spare time.’ But I’m sure that’s all going to change. It’s the pay-TV channels that have to move their model most significantly.”

Falcone said that Guru Studio has been working with some new models given the pressures on broadcaster budgets. “We’ve discovered new working models which are more business investments than strict commissioning or licensing fees. They would come in as an investor, which is a new model for us and very interesting because they become a brand partner. We’ve adapted to this situation and said, Can we look at a way to partner with you that doesn’t strictly adhere to the old broadcast regimen and rules?

“Innovating and finding new business models is the way to do co-productions. If [governments] can find a treaty later, that would be great. But the treaties need to be rewritten—the streaming co-productions don’t fall under treaties. There are still a lot of unknowns, at least for me personally, on how you venture into this world. But we are excited to come back to the market to find new opportunities because everyone seems to feel this desire to co-produce again. We don’t all want to fall at the hands of a couple of major VODs and lose all the rights. We need to find creative ways to work together.”

Stoef, CEO and executive producer at Toon2Tango, added that it’s the “second-tier commercial broadcasters” that are trimming their content budgets. “There is quite a bit of uncertainty about what’s going to happen to the advertising market over the next 12 to 16 months. And that has an impact on their acquisition strategy. On the other hand, the potential co-producers we are talking to are looking for new models, because of the uncertainty. That is not the same with the key broadcasters we have in certain markets. They are as active as they have ever been. Maybe they are not producing the same amount, the number of shows, but certainly the money and the investment stays the same, and they are still open and looking for content.”

“Sometimes you’re being asked to bring the advertising spend to the pay-TV broadcaster and that’s a game that you can only really play with a toy partner,” said Dexter.

Plus, Falcone said, not every show “has brand merchandising potential. So that’s where we see the challenge. Not every show should—certainly kids shouldn’t be inundated with toys for every single show that they watch. If every model requests that kind of participation, a lot of shows are going to fall by the wayside. Public broadcasters are good anchors for those shows, where you don’t need to build a brand strategy around a show if it’s just a show for a show’s sake.”

Dexter recalled a time when Nickelodeon U.K. would put up 25 percent of the budget for its local market. “Now you’re looking at that across multiple territories. We have to work harder and harder to find the revenue for each co-production. I can understand the temptation if an SVOD channel says, I want to fully fund your show!”

The SVODs do have the biggest budgets, Rutherford, the president of Boat Rocker Studios, kids & family and rights at Boat Rocker Media, noted. “The determination on what is a brand franchise within your portfolio in many ways will dictate the path you take, working with a streamer or securing financing. If you believe that one of your particular projects has legs to go the distance, then you will work harder to achieve financing from multiple different avenues. We’re fortunate in Canada that our tax credit system is so high, especially when you get into regional spends and whatnot, that we can obtain a good chunk of our financing and give us a little more leverage to hold on to certain rights to navigate through. Even in a co-production model with a streamer, at 50 percent to 60 percent of financing—it’s great that you get that from a bigger budget, but now you have to fill the rest of the bigger budget. Whether it’s a public broadcaster or commercial broadcaster, the numbers [for what they will invest] are coming down significantly. The tax subsidies we have allow us to maneuver a little more easily, and just the type of company we are, we do put investments into our projects, but it does create challenges across the board.”

The SVODs also have a high rate of one-season shows, Falcone stated. “My worry always is, are streaming services where shows go to die? Because if, for some reason, you launch your show while the American [Congress] is being overrun, your show runs the risk of not seeing the light of day for one event. And there is not the support structure within some of these streamers to commit to your show. Would a SpongeBob happen if it launched on a major streamer in this era? It’s hard to say because you don’t have the ability to commit to the show. The algorithm dictates whether you get a renewal. If you feel your show has legs and several seasons under it, as we do for many of ours, we sort of keep them away from the streamers because we’re looking for better models. It takes longer. It’s hard work to run around and pull all this financing together. It can be done. But you can potentially miss your window of opportunity for your show if it takes too long to put the financing together. You are always weighing the risks of putting it all in with a VOD and getting your commission going sooner and getting into production. You have to respond based on your needs and the needs of the show.”

The other downside of a global SVOD deal is the “two-year holdback against TV,” Dexter said. “We’re distributing a show which was a commission by Netflix, but they took a year break. You have season one, which is available now; season two isn’t available till 2023. So nobody is going to buy it until 2022.”

Stoef added, “It’s still totally uncertain whether a streamer will be able to make an IP brand, a licensing and merchandising hit number one.”

Falcone discussed Guru Studio’s own experience working with Netflix on True and the Rainbow Kingdom, with four seasons commissioned. “That’s given us the time to find the second windows and now we’re launching across Tiny Pop and other traditional cable broadcasters. We’re able to kind of bridge it, but it’s been challenging even with a four-season commitment to get those windows to open up and to continue to build the show. Now we’re seeing audiences respond to the show because they hadn’t been exposed to Netflix. It’s a different demographic, a different group of kids. But it’s been really hard work and that’s with a four-season commitment and the show has been out for three years. In this current model of how they commission, it’s even harder than it was when we luckily managed a deal that gave us some room and some additional windows to roll out the content.”

Rutherford added, “Traditionally, it was always great to be on a very prominent linear broadcaster that had the eyeballs and the visibility. Those are the ones that when we come to a toy partner or licensee, that’s the first question they have. The reality is, the money is just not spread around the same way it once was. Working with streamers is a more realistic way of getting shows sold than ever before. So now it does put the emphasis back on us as a company. If we want to build a brand or franchise around this, what are we doing to support that? How are we adding more eyeballs around the streaming visibility, whether it’s through strategic negotiation around second windows, whether it’s additional publicity and promotion or brand activation events? The always-on approach to digital. It’s costly.

“In some cases, if there is no other financing, there are no other tax subsidies, it’s U.S.-based talent, then maybe doing a deal where [the streamer] owns it outright isn’t so bad and you deal with what you get in that particular project. It’s a good fee-driven structure for us, but we know that that’s not a model that we are going to do on everything.”

Dexter asked Falcone about an earlier comment he made in the conversation about if increased competition among SVOD players would lead to more relaxed holdbacks and rights requirements. “I’m just being hopeful. It’s called wishful thinking! [Laughs] Competition breeds creative deal-making. If you have the chance to get a show in front of a few VOD players, you can negotiate your terms because there is competition now. I don’t think they are going to change their terms. They are still looking to acquire all the rights in perpetuity and to completely own the shows.”

Stoef, for his part, said he’s heard a greater openness to flexibility in his conversations with streaming platforms. “They know that their libraries have been pretty much used, so they need new content, and therefore they have to be more flexible and accept windowing or co-productions a little bit more than they used to in the past.”

The panelists were then asked to share recent successful co-pro partnerships. Falcone mentioned Pikwik Pack. “In the early days, we had discussions with major cable broadcasters and we had Playmates Toys come on board as a toy partner very early on. The confidence that brings to deal-making allowed us to make a great deal with Disney Junior. We got Corus Entertainment on board in Canada.” The Guru Studio sales team is taking the series out to international broadcasters. “That is one of our most creative models. It’s less of a treaty co-production than it is a business co-production. It’s shared rights, shared streams of revenue and everyone is bringing a strength to the model. There aren’t competing creative heads asking for different things. We’ve been allowed to make the show as we wanted and we’ve utilized the strengths of the partners to strengthen the brand rather than wondering what the German broadcaster wants versus the French broadcaster, which is sometimes just subjective and doesn’t necessarily improve the show’s core DNA.”

Serious Lunch is working on a show with Gigglebug Entertainment, YLE, Nickelodeon International and Nelvana. “In that scenario, we have what we call the elephant in the room, which is the U.S. option. If the U.S. option triggers, then we’re going to have more money than we know what to do with. But if it doesn’t, then we are probably just going to make the show and it’s going to be a long time before we see any money. There are big MGs and a lot of money to be recouped before the co-producers see it. It’s great that we are financed and we’re in production. But not knowing about the U.S. part is what keeps me awake at night.”

Stoef discussed the Toon2Tango project Agent 203. “We took the original concept and co-created it and completely adapted and changed it and have been able to go the traditional way. We found a commissioning broadcaster, Super RTL. They helped with the further development of the show. It’s been co-developed and co-produced by Mondo TV in Italy. We didn’t go to the SVODs at that stage because, for us, it’s an entertaining concept that has the potential to sustain in the licensing and merchandising field also. We are very happy we have been able to finance it in the traditional way, in total with only two co-producers. Maybe we’ll have to add on a third one.”

Boat Rocker Studios is working with a variety of different models, “none of which fall into your traditional two-partner treaty approach, but more of the business co-production.” These include The Next Step with the BBC and ABC in Australia; Get Even, a BBC-Boat Rocker co-pro that also has Netflix attached; Love Monster with BBC and UYoung; Dino Ranch with Disney Junior in the U.S. and CBC in Canada; and an as-yet-announced co-pro with Netflix.

Carugati then asked the panelists about what broadcasters and platforms are seeking out today.

“The move towards diversity is getting stronger and stronger,” said Dexter. “Here in the U.K., we have a new fund called the YACF, Young Audiences Content Fund, which can fund up to 50 percent of your production. But when you’re filling in the forms about why your program should qualify for this fund, it’s all about the diversity on-screen and the diversity in your production team. With Nickelodeon, when we are sending up a choice of musician, director and so on, you’ve got to present a wide range of people for that role, or they won’t take the shortlist.”

For Stoef, a key demand he’s hearing is for content for the 6 to 9 demo, especially girl-centered shows.

“Everyone is looking for a hit,” Falcone said. “It just seems that they are looking for diverse types of content and that makes it harder to know who to pitch or where something should land. Before you would know if it’s a Nick show, a Disney show or an RTL show, you knew what the audience’s tastes were. With fragmented audiences and shared audiences, it’s a lot harder to find out who to pitch what show. That’s a challenge that I think everybody faces.”

He added, “The content that we’re most concerned with right now is the digital apps that are grabbing attention away from passive viewing. I don’t know if I’ve seen any shows that are a challenge to the TikToks and the types of content that kids, especially in the 6 to 12 range, are drawn to right now. As an industry, we have a real challenge to present offerings to kids that keep them engaged in that passive viewing model when they love to thumb through videos and make their own videos that contribute to the conversation. That is a huge shift, especially in the last year. We’ve got a challenge as kids’ business leaders to find unique shows and not rehash the kinds of shows we’ve made for the last 10 to 20 years. We’re looking to bring some interesting new products to the market that are not traditional in any way, that don’t subscribe to the 52×11-minute model. That’s a place I think we need to go as kids’ entertainers.”

Rutherford added that with kids having been cooped up for the last year, shows celebrating the outdoors and adventure are crucial—“seeing something they want to be involved in,” he said.

Rex è un cucciolo con una disabilità ed è un tipo molto amichevole e davvero coraggioso! Sarà lui ad accompagnare i Paw Patrol nel loro viaggio tra i dinosauri!

Official Nickelodeon Italia press release:

PAW Patrol è pronta a lanciare un nuovo personaggio:
REX

Il primo cucciolo con disabilità debutterà all’interno della nuova serie:
“PAW Patrol Dino Rescue”
che sarà trasmessa nel pop up channel dedicato
“Paw Patrol - Cuccioli in azione”
in onda dal 12 al 18 aprile solo su NickJr+1, Sky 604


Da sempre basata sull'azione e l'avventura, la serie di PAW Patrol, di Nickelodeon e Spin Master e in onda su NickJr, il brand a target prescolare di ViacomCBS Italia, è pronta a debuttare con i nuovissimi episodi intitolati: “PAW Patrol Dino Rescue”.

Le nuove puntate verranno svelate in un modo speciale: dal 12 al 18 aprile, il canale NickJr +1, Sky 604, si trasforma infatti nel pop up channel “Paw Patrol - Cuccioli in azione” e trasmetterà tutto il giorno per 24 ore, tutti gli episodi della serie e ogni sera alle 20:00 ci sarà la premiere dei 4 episodi speciali di “PAW Patrol Dino Rescue”.

Nella serie “PAW Patrol Dino Rescue”, la PAW Patrol, formata dai simpatici cuccioli a quattro zampe provenienti da Adventure Bay, si recherà a Dino Land dove farà conoscenza con un nuovo personaggio: Rex, un cucciolo esperto in dinosauri affetto da disabilità. Rex, infatti, fisicamente disabile, sarà dotato di una sedia a rotelle per le zampe posteriori che lo aiuterà negli spostamenti, rendendolo così autonomo e in grado di interagire alla pari con gli altri personaggi.


Con l’arrivo di Rex, tutta la squadra dei cuccioli sarà pronta ad affrontare missioni di salvataggio “preistoriche” piene di azione all’interno di un mondo perduto e abitato da dinosauri. “Per ogni occasione noi siamo a disposizione” questo è il famoso motto recitato dai protagonisti e anche in queste nuove avventure non faranno a meno del loro coraggio!.

“ViacomCBS è un brand all’avanguardia, diversità ed inclusione sono i valori che guidano i nostri contenuti e non solo” commenta Cecilia Padula, Senior Director Kids South Hub, ViacomCBS. “Per i bambini l’inclusione è un vissuto naturale ma come per tutto è un valore che va costantemente alimentato e tradotto con il loro linguaggio. Nickelodeon ha da sempre questa attenzione nelle sue produzioni per accompagnare i bambini nella crescita personale. Mostrare e raccontare ai bambini la diversità, li aiuta a connettersi e identificarsi con i personaggi delle serie accrescendo la loro connaturata apertura mentale. ViacomCBS, proprio in questo senso, ha sviluppato la policy aziendale “No Diversity No Commission”, per portare sempre più inclusività nei contenuti e nello storytelling dei propri brand e prodotti. La diversità è unicità, viviamo oggi in un contesto sempre più eterogeneo per composizione e prospettive, ed è responsabilità di ViacomCBS garantire che i contenuti prodotti riflettano sempre più il mondo in cui vive il proprio pubblico, soprattutto dei più piccoli”.

I temi trattati in Dino Rescue, verranno sapientemente integrati nel mondo di PAW Patrol, che rimarrà fedele a copioni e personaggi ben conosciuti da tutti i fan della serie. Di seguito la sinossi del primo episodio “PAW Patrol Dino Rescue”:

Ryder ha una grande sorpresa per la Paw Patrol: il nuovo cucciolo Rex, il quale oltre all’incontenibile simpatia saprà anche come parlare con i dinosauri visto che vive in una valle segreta chiamata “La Radura dei Dinosauri”.

Nickelodeon Spain and Lanjarón Partner for Garfield Water Bottles

Mineral water brand Lanjarón has partnered with ViacomCBS Consumer Products (VCP) to launch a range of Lanjarón Kids water bottles inspired by the hit property Garfield in Spain! The news comes as ViacomCBS AVOD service Pluto TV launches a new Garfield channel in the region. Lanjarón previously teamed up with Nickelodeon in 2019 to launch a SpongeBob range of water bottles to celebrate the property's 20th anniversary. Nickelodeon acquired the Garfield brand in 2019.



Lanjarón lanza una colección con el personaje de ficción Garfield

La marca de agua mineral natural homenajea al famoso gato nacido de la popular tira cómica
     
Garfield y sus míticas frases son los protagonistas de las nuevas coloridas botellas de Lanjarón en formato mascot.

Garfield ilustra la nueva colección de botellas de Lanjarón Kids, la gama de productos especialmente diseñada para niños y niñas, disponible ya en los lineales.

El precio con el que será lanzada al mercado es de 0,58 euros por unidad (PVP).

Como parte del extenso porfolio de propiedades de ViacomCBS Consumer Products (VCP), la tira cómica con mayor crecimiento de la historia -convertida en serie de televisión en 2019 por la marca Nickelodeon, propiedad de ViacomCBS- , ahora fomenta también hábitos de hidratación saludable entre los más pequeños.

La colección de Lanjarón está compuesta por cuatro botellas en formato mascot de 33 centilitros y está ilustrada con las icónicas expresiones de uno de los gatos más querido del mundo. La pasión por la lasaña, la pereza y el humor peculiar de Garfield forman parte de ellas.

El objetivo de estas colecciones es facilitar el trabajo a los padres y madres a la hora de fomentar una correcta hidratación entre sus hijos. La hidratación infantil siempre ha sido una prioridad para Aguas Danone, que ha desarrollado en los últimos años formatos especialmente pensados para mejorar su hidratación como ‘Font Vella Kids’ y ‘Lanjarón Kids’, agua mineral natural con diseños basados en sus personajes favoritos o simpáticos animales, además de contar con el diseño mascot que facilita el agarre y el tapón sport que evita el derrame.

Pluto TV Spain Adds Garfield, Classic Anime Channels

Nick News Brief: Pluto TV Spain (España) has added a brand new channel called Canal Garfield! The channel broadcasts episodes of the hit '80s Garfield animated series Garfield and Friends round-the-clock. The episodes have been remastered into 4K, and, for the first time, dubbed into Castilian Spanish (the series had previously only been broadcast with a generic Spanish dub). Nickelodeon acquired the Garfield brand in 2019.


Additionally, Pluto TV España has also added Anime Clásico, a brand new channel devoted to classic anime series, including Nickelodeon India's Ninja Hattori.


Pluto TV incorpora en mayo dos nuevos canales Anime Clásico y Garfield

Pluto TV incorpora dos canales con animes clásicos como Keroro, KochiKame, Ninja Hattori y la mítica serie Garfield

LUK Internacional tendrá a partir del 17 de mayo parte de su contenido en dos nuevos canales de Pluto TV, la plataforma gratuita y sin registro de ViacomCBS, disponible a través de www.pluto.tv, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung TV+, Chromecast y dispositivos móviles. Se trata de Anime Clásico y Garfield, ambos dedicados en exclusiva a la animación.

En el canal Anime Clásico se podrán ver series que marcaron a toda una generación y se han convertido en producciones de culto como Keroro, KochiKame, Jewelpet, Ninja Hattori, Kiteretsu (El primo más listo de Nobita) y Reborn!.

El otro estará dedicado enteramente al mítico personaje de Garfield, creado por Jim Davis en 1978 y convertido en serie de televisión de animación en 1988 bajo el nombre de Garfield y sus amigos.

Series del canal Anime Clásico

Keroro

Cinco alienígenas del planeta Keron, en la nebulosa de Gama, llegan a la Tierra (que ellos llaman Pokopen) a reconocer el terreno para una inminente invasión. Los keronenses tienen aspecto de rana y cada uno de ellos tiene un color y un distintivo diferente.

No obstante, los cinco se separan y el protagonista y líder de la tropa, Keroro, acaba infiltrado en casa de la familia Hinata, con la que vivirán grandes aventuras.

Ninja Hattori

Una noche de invierno, mientras Ken-ichi ve una película de ninjas por televisión, aparece a su lado un niño vestido como un ninja de la guerra feudal. El niño se llama Kanzoh Hattori, y viene del pueblo de Iga (famoso por su tradición ninja). Enseguida se hacen amigos. Los padres de Ken-ichi, a pesar de que no se creen al principio que sea un verdadero ninja, pronto se dan cuenta de que Hattori es un chico muy simpático con un gran sentido del deber, y empiezan a considerarlo un buen amigo de su hijo.

Esta serie nació de Fujiko Fujio, el mismo creador de Doraemon y fue producida en los mismos estudios de animación que la mítica serie Doraemon.

Kochikame

La historia sigue las locas aventuras del policía de mediana edad Kankichi Ryotsu (Ryo-san), quien trabaja en la comisaría del barrio de Kochikame en Tokio. Ryotsu siempre anda buscando la manera de ganar dinero fácilmente, pero cuando le salen mal los planes acaba pidiendo ayuda a Nakagawa.

Es una serie con una fuerte personalidad, con muchas semejanzas cómicas con la famosa saga americana de largometrajes Loca Academia de Policía.

Kiteretsu (El primo más listo de Nobita)

Serie ambientada en la vida de un niño de 12 años, Kiteretsu. Es un niño que destaca por su inteligencia y es capaz de fabricar los inventos más sorprendentes, gracias al libro de su antepasado: el maestro Kiteretsu. Kiteretsu vive con sus padres y el robot samurái que él mismo creó, Korosuke.

Esta serie nació de Fujiko Fujio, el mismo creador de Doraemon, y fue producida en los mismos estudios de animación que la mítica serie de Doraemon.

Jewelpet

Jewelpet trata sobre una historia de unas chicas humanas y los Jewelpets que provienen del mundo mágico Jewel Land. Los ojos de los Jewelpets tienen poderes mágicos con los que pueden resolver problemas de los humanos.

Es una serie producida por Sanrio, productora de Hello Kitty y de la famosa empresa de videojuegos SEGA con colaboración de Fuji Creative.

Reborn!

Reborn! trata sobre Tsunayoshi Sawada, un chico normal, de gran corazón, que vive en Tokio. Está enamorado de Kyôko Sasagawa y sus compañeros siempre se meten con él, llamándole “Tsuninútil”, debido a su nula capacidad tanto en los estudios como en los deportes. Un día, su pariente Timoteo (el 9º Jefe de la familia Vongola) le comunica que él va a ser su sucesor.

Para que Tsuna esté preparado para el momento en el que él sea el 10º Jefe, manda a su casa a un tutor personal llamado Reborn que le ayudará a ser un buen Jefe gracias a un arma especial de la familia Vongola, y que en ciertas ocasiones le ayudará a continuar su vida normal de una sola pieza.

Canal Garfield

Garfield y sus amigos

La serie nos muestra la vida de Garfield, que se resume en devorar lasaña, dormir, fastidiar al perro Odie y, de paso, también a su dueño, John. La serie combina segmentos de Garfield con otros basados en La Granja de Orson.

Serie creada por el famoso dibujante de comics strip, Jim Davis, y dirigida y producida por Phil Roman, en los estudios Film Roman Productions, mismo estudio que ha producido la serie Los Simpsons.

Esta es la primera vez que se podrá ver la serie Garfield y sus amigos remasterizada en 4K y doblada al castellano. (Hasta la fecha, la serie solo se ha retransmitido doblada al español neutro).
