At Kidscreen 2020, MIMO shared we more information about their plans for The Pout-Pout Fish. MIMO is turning the popular book series into a trio of 45-minute animated musical specials with a social-emotional curriculum for preschoolers. The three films will see Pout-Pout Fish make friends, clean up the pollution in his home and save Christmas.
Carin Greenberg (Doc McStuffins, Tumble Leaf) is attached to write the scripts, and a treatment and characters designs are already complete. MIMO is currently seeking broadcasters, distributors and co-producers for the films.
“The unique look of The Pout-Pout Fish and the successful sales history of the books gives the brand a lot to offer. These films will help us test the IP’s potential and get to market quick so we can reach kids.”
