YTV Canada to Premiere 'Best & Bester' on Sept. 18

YTV in Canada will premiere the brand new animated comedy series Best & Bester on Sunday, September 18! Following launch, viewers can catch all new episodes regularly on YTV.


Best and Bester are siblings and best friends obsessed with comparing the best things of all time while
enjoying the power to transform themselves into anything they want, once a day – if only they can figure out what the best thing to be actually is!


Best & Bester (52x11) is a co-production between London-based studio Eye Present and Finnish studio Gigglebug Entertainment. Nickelodeon International acquired the pre-buy rights to the series in February 2020. The deal includes creative editorial input and broadcast commitment from Nickelodeon International, as well as YLE, The Finnish Broadcasting Company, and development funding from Creative Europe, a cultural support program run by the European Union.

“Best & Bester offer both the laughs and the smarts that we think will resonate with our audience,” said Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President (SVP), Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships, Nickelodeon. “We’re excited to welcome them to the Nick family and bring this comedic duo to our international screens.”


“We love the positive message of this show which is, at its heart, a celebration of diverse opinions and identities. Kids today live in a world that is full of possibilities, when you have a curious mind,” said Teija Rantala, Head of Children’s Programmes at YLE.

“This is great news, the Nickelodeon greenlight for the series now leads us to explore gaming and experiential content which is built into the core of the IP,” said Genevieve Dexter, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Eye Present.


Creators Joonas Utti and Anttu Harlin are thrilled to have their latest creation signed with a global kids brand, following their credits on 101 Dalmatian Street and Gigglebug.

“We want to spread joy through animation. To make seriously silly stuff, with a purpose,” said Anttu Harlin, executive producer and co-founder of Gigglebug Entertainment.
