Endlich neue ANIMANIMALS!

Seit dem 5. November ist die zweite Staffel der ANIMANIMALS fertig, und sie läuft jetzt schon – bis zum 30. November im KiKA, jeden Abend um 18:10 Uhr, danach in der Mediathek.


Unter den 26 neuen Tieren sind:

- ein Schweinchen, das so heftig putzt, dass die ganze Wohnung wie ein Schweinestall aussieht

- ein Marienkäfer, der einen anderen Marienkäfer trifft, der ihm zu ähnlich ist

- ein Nashorn, das sich auf ein romantisches Date vorbereitet und dessen Horn im Weg ist

- ein Siebenschläfer, der seinen eigenen Geburtstag verschläft.


A second season (26 x 4') of Animanimals will be launching this autumn following on from the success of the first season (26 x 4'). Season 2 of the multi award-winning series has already been presold to DR Denmark, NRK Norway, TVO Canada, LTV Latvia and Benshi France. Season 1 has recently been relicensed by Netflix DACH, Disney Japan, Benshi France, SVT Sweden and PTS Taiwan. New sales of Season 1 include Mediacorp Singapore, DR Denmark, LTV Latvia and Daekyo Korea.

In each episode of Animanimals, a different animal faces an absurd adventure that can only happen to them. A Piglet, who is cleaning so hard that the whole house is getting a mess. A Rhino, who is preparing for a romantic date, but his horn is in the way. A Kangaroo, who has everything else but a baby in its bag. And while finding the solution, each animal learns a little lesson about life. 

Animanimals is produced by Studio Film Bilder in Stuttgart and co-produced by leading German children's channel KiKA as well as regional German broadcaster SWR. The series has won 77 awards worldwide including the prestigious Grimme Prize in Germany. The Studio Film Bilder YouTube channel has over 1.5M subscribers and Animanimals has had over 140M views. Animanimals is distributed worldwide by Meta Media Entertainment, a London-based distributor specialising in high quality children's animation series for broadcasters and digital platforms.
Julia Ocker, creator of Animanimals, says: "For me, each production of an Animanimals season is like a typical Animanimals story: Like a typical Animanimal, I stumble and make mistakes. And like an Animanimal, I hope these mistakes are helpful and lead me to a happy ending: That all of you will enjoy the new episodes!

Thomas Meyer-Hermann, producer of Animanimals, says: “For the films of season 1, there were audience awards at festivals in Athens, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Barcelona, Baden, Singapore, Brussels, New York City, Paris, Lisbon and many more. Season 2 will speak to the whole world again, as it is built on the same strong base: Julia Ocker’s unique style, bright conception of life and generous sense of humor.”

Stefan Pfäffle/KiKA, Benjamin Manns/SWR say: “From the very beginning when KiKA and SWR came on board for season 1 we strongly felt that this series had the chance of becoming something extraordinary and something extraordinarily funny, looking at some minor challenges of life from a different angle. In the end it turned out that the series became exactly this. So, we are more than happy to be partner again on season 2 and can’t wait to present the new episodes to our audience.“

Sara Cooper, Founder of Meta Media Entertainment, says “The combination of Julia’s incredible creativity and heartfelt passion for this series combined with Thomas and his team’s production flair continues to result in outstanding work which I’m delighted to be bringing to an ever-growing number of worldwide fans.”
