Rainbow Inks '44 Cats' Toy Deal with Toy Plus [Updated]

Rainbow has inked a new licensing deal for the Italian production company's CG-animated preschool series 44 Cats with Thai Group’s Toy Plus, a Hong Kong-based company!

Under the terms of the agreement, Toy Plus will develop a variety of products including interactive plush, figurines, play sets, musical toys and more based on the music, creative play patterns and collectability featured in the series. The line of merchandise is slated to be presented in Hong Kong in October, followed by becoming available for purchase around the world in fall 2019.

The deal also sees Simba Dickie Group joining as special partner and exclusive distributor for Europe and the Middle East.

Produced by Rainbow in collaboration with Antoniano Bologna and Rai Ragazzi, 44 Cats follows the daily adventures of Lampo, Milady, Pilou, and Meatball – four adorable kittens and bandmates of The Buffycats! From their home in the Clubhouse, a garage inside old Granny Pina’s house, they make it their mission to help others and find creative solutions to everyday problems, while sharing a message of friendship, altruism, tolerance, diversity and acceptance.

“We are delighted to be working with Toy Plus on 44 Cats,” said Iginio Straffi, the founder and president of Rainbow. “I’m sure they will do a fantastic job in translating the positive values that embody this brand into a toy range. This deal is further proof that 44 Cats has all the ingredients of a major TV and licensing success!”

“This is a dream come true, as I have known Rainbow for almost 20 years and have always wanted to work with them,” added Josue Rosenzweig, the president of Toy Plus. “I’m sure that 44 Cats will soon be a top property worldwide, as it has all the ingredients of a major hit!”

The news follows Nickelodeon International acquiring the broadcast rights to the series (52 x 13-minute episodes) in May 2018. Nickelodeon International will broadcast the animated series around the world, excluding in the U.S. and Latin America, from 2019.

Earlier this week, Discovery Kids Latinoamérica picked up the series, and grabbed exclusive licensing and merchandising rights for the region (excluding master toy). Germany’s Super RTL has also bought the rights to the show for a 2019 launch.

The series is the first Rainbow Group production jointly developed with Bardel Entertainment, the Canadian animation studio it acquired in 2015, and also marks Rainbow’s (Winx Club, Regal Academy, Mia and me, Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends) inaugural foray into preschool programming. Italian broadcaster RAI is co-producing, and will premiere the toon later this year.

Update (5/8): Rai Yoyo in Italy will host the world premiere of 44 Cats in November 2018!

Luca Milano, Director at Rai Ragazzi, commented: “Inspired by a very popular Italian kids song, 44 Cats is a combination of stories and fun that will thrill children and families around the world. We are proud that, in the autumn, Rai Yoyo will be the first network to broadcast the series, continuing the long collaboration between Rai and Rainbow. 44 Cats, created and directed by Iginio Straffi, manages to reinterpret the Zecchino d’Oro (children’s song festival) classic with a modern look and an extraordinary level of animation quality.”

The news follows Rainbow partnering with Nickelodeon Latin America (Latinoamérica) for the networks brand-new original eSports-themed scripted live-action series N00bees.

Rainbow launched 44 Cats at MIP Junior in Cannes in October 2017. The glittering cocktail party featured lots of entertainment, offering guests a taste of the show atmosphere. One of Rainbow’s artists was at the party to show how a 44 Cats character is drawn; a band performed hits including songs from the series and guests could enjoy funny moments dressing up as cats at the special 44 Cats photocall area, where an official photographer was on hand to take amazing snaps. The evening was a PAWsome success and the best way to celebrate the launch of such a meowing new show.

Titkok és tabuk nélkül – meglepő tényt tükröz a Nickelodeon kutatása | Nickelodeon Hungary

Below is Nickelodeon Hungary's version of Viacom's latest global research study, Kids of the World, via BEOL. A English version of this article can be read here:

Drake Bell Visits the 'Drake & Josh' House, But It's Gone! [Updated]

Say it isn’t so!

Drake Bell was feeling nostalgic and decided to make a trip to the old Drake & Josh house, but he discovered that it was no longer there!

“The Drake & Josh House is GONE!!” he captioned the Twitter video below.

In the video, Drake shows off the empty lot and says, “What’s up, everybody? I came to check out the Drake & Josh house, and it is gone! All that remains is this mailbox.”

“We know one person did it 😂 Megan 😂😂,” one fan commented, referring to Miranda Cosgrove‘s character, while another wrote, “Noooo my childhood😭😭😫.”

I might be crying a little bit, too.

The house was, of course, only used for exterior shots on Drake & Josh. The teen sitcom aired on Nickelodeon for four seasons from 2004 to 2007, including a pair of TV movies that premiered on the network in 2006 and 2008. Although it has been over a decade since the show ended, it remains a millennial classic, and it has been the subject of tons of reboot or reunion rumors over the last few years.

Although the house of was only used as exterior shots, the news follows the revelation that another iconic part of Nickelodeon's history was being torn down - Nickelodeon on Sunset, Nickelodeon's West Coast studios where much of the interior shots of Drake & Josh were filmed.

As the eponymous stars of the show, Drake Bell and Josh Peck have fanned the flames of possible bringing the series back a few times in the past, but all hope seemed lost after Bell vented about not being invited to Peck's wedding last year. However, Bell has since said that he and Peck have worked past that drama and have never stopped being brothers, adding in that he is always down for a Drake & Josh reboot whenever Peck is.

Update (7/16) - Via TooFab:

Why Drake Bell Hasn't Spoken to Josh Peck 'In a Little While' After All That Wedding Drama

The former "Drake & Josh" star also tells TooFab how he really feels about his sitcom house being demolished.

Drake Bell was not a happy camper when he went back to the house at the center of the beloved Nickelodeon comedy series, "Drake & Josh," only to find rubble.

"All that remains is this mailbox," he revealed in a video he shared on Twitter last week of his disappointing trip down memory lane.

The house in Encino, California, was demolished more than a decade after the final episode of the 2004 teen sitcom aired -- and Drake feels that was the wrong move.

"I think the Smithsonian should have been involved," the actor-turned-musician joked when he stopped by Studio TooFab. "There should have been petitions. I think there was a petition -- there had to have been! There's enough love for it that [a petition] didn't have to be created by someone involved with the show, and that's why it should have been a historical landmark."

TeenNick Italy to Premiere 'Star Falls' on Monday 10th September 2018

TeenNick Italy (Italia) will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new live-action series Star Falls weekdays at 20:20 from Monday 10th September 2018!

Created by George Doty IV (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Max & Shred, Scooby Doo and the Loch Ness Monster), Star Falls centers on Sophia, a strong-willed teen who persuades a Hollywood movie star and his family to live in her house while he shoots a movie in town, all with the hopes of setting him up with her mom. But the star’s three kids find their new rural life is a drastic change from the L.A. lifestyle they’re accustomed to. Everyone’s lives are hilariously turned upside down as the kids struggle to help their parents find love and adjust to what could be their new life. Nickelodeon has ordered 20 episodes for the show's first season. Star Falls was filmed in Canada by Breakthrough Entertainment during summer 2017.

In the series premiere, "The Celebrity Setup" (#101), when Sophia rescues the dog of Hollywood star Craig Brooks, she seizes the opportunity to set her mom up with him. When that doesn't work, she takes things a step further and has the star and his three kids move in with them!

Star Falls stars Siena Agudong (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Alex & Me) as Sophia Miller, Kamaia Fairburn (Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B) as Diamond Brooks, Tomaso Sanelli (The Passenger) as Nate Rex, Jadiel Dowlin (Annedroids) as Phoenix Brooks and Marcus Cornwall as Bo Brooks.

Star Falls made its world premiere on Nickelodeon USA on Saturday 31st March 2018, and is currently rolling out onto Nickelodeon channels around the world. The series will also air on YTV in Canada from September 2018.

Nickelodeon Central and Eastern Europe to Premiere 'Blurt!' on Sunday 30th September 2018



Nickelodeon Central and Eastern Europe will premiere a new original TV movie, Blurt (formerly Inside Voice), on Sunday 30th September 2018 at 11:15am CET, starring Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam, Rufus), JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties) and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad). The live-action comedy tells the story of Jeremy Martin (Jace Norman) who, after a comical virtual reality mishap, starts speaking every thought he has out loud and to complicate matters, he happens to be running in the school election.

Jeremy Martin is a nice-guy and when he puts on mysterious virtual reality glasses at the mall, he suddenly loses his “inside voice” and starts spouting every thought he has out loud. Making matters worse, Jeremy is running for student council president against his classmate Milly (Daniella Perkins), who is full of great ideas to improve the school. Desperate to get back to normal, Jeremy and his sister Victoria (JoJo Siwa) must figure out how to convince his brain that he can speak up for himself. Can they do it, or will Jeremy be stuck saying his thoughts out loud forever?!

The virtual reality sequences featured in the movie are being developed and created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, the network’s new division spearheading long-range research and development efforts around new technologies for Nick and its audience. Blurt is the second on-air project fed through the lab, following Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.

Blurt is executive produced by Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia. Amy Sydorick is serving as producer. Jace Norman is serving as co-producer. The TV movie was written by Adrian Vina (Liar, Liar Vampire) and is directed by Michelle Johnston (Another Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits).

Blurt made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Monday 19th February 2018, and is currently rolling out on Nickelodeon channels worldwide.
