(Yicai Global) Sept. 5 -- Kiddets, a 52-episode cartoon co-produced by Chinese and New Zealand firms, has received the greenlight from regulators to air in China this year.
The State Administration of Radio and Television has given approvals for the show to be broadcast online in the fourth quarter of this year, Hengxin Shambala Culture said in a statement. The company is the parent of the Chinese co-producer Hengxin Shambala Children Cultural Industry Development.
An entertaining and educational cartoon created for preschool children aged between three and six, Kiddets is targeted at the global market and contains popular elements from its sister series The WotWots. It uses well-thought-out storylines and attractive animation to offer kids formative education on social skills, arts, nature, mechanics and astronomy.
The cartoon, produced in conjunction with New Zealand firm Pukeko Pictures, debuted on Australia's ABC Television on Sept. 3, and premiered in New Zealand a few weeks later.
