CAKE and August Media Holdings announced that CBeebies has pre-bought the upcoming season of International Emmy Award-nominated preschool animation Tish Tash in a deal signed by CAKE.
Following the series’ successful launch on CBeebies in September 2021, a further 52 episodes are in production with delivery planned for Autumn 2024 (104 x 5’ total). A sing-and-dance-along interstitial series is also planned for delivery in 2023.
Aimed at three- to five-year olds, Tish Tash is produced by South Korean animation shop Studio Gale, Singapore-based August Media Holdings, Korean educational public broadcaster EBS and BAFTA- and Emmy Award-winning U.K.-based Karrot Entertainment.
Tish Tash follows the adventures of a young bear called Tish, her bear family and her larger-than-life imaginary friend Tash, as they learn about the world around them. No matter what troubles they face — be it surviving long, boring car trips or helping Tish’s baby brother not to be too sad about losing his favorite toy — these special friends can create new worlds around themselves, embarking on fun adventures, while inspiring imaginative play and problem solving in young children.
“Young viewers and their parents have been charmed by the warm-hearted adventures of Tish and her imaginary best friend Tash,” said Ed Galton, CEO at CAKE. “We are delighted to be partnering with CBeebies on a second season and look forward to bringing more imaginative and fun stories to audiences in the U.K. and around the world.”
