CAKE obtains distribution rights to American Collective’s library

Kids’ entertainment and production company, CAKE has partnered with Animation Collective for a deal which grants the former worldwide distribution rights to the latter’s remastered library of several hundred episodes. One of the largest independent animation studios in New York, Animation Collective has designed several cult classics and fan favourites for multiple platforms with original humour and dynamic design. “The Animation Collective library is a great addition to CAKE’s catalogue. With prolific characters and original story-telling, these dynamic properties will appeal to a new generation of kids and tweens as well as original fans and anime lovers and we are looking forward to re-introducing the library to a worldwide audience,” said  CAKE CCO and managing director Ed Galton. Animation Collective’s hit shows include the Emmy-nominated Kappa Mikey, which revolves around a struggling actor who becomes Japan’s biggest anime star. Nickelodeon’s first global acquisition, Kappa Mikey became the network’s highest rated show when it premiered in the US on Nicktoons. Additional popular titles include Three Delivery, Thumb Wrestling Federation: TWF for Cartoon Network US and CBBC UK, where it was the highest rated kids show, and the critically acclaimed preschool series Ellen’s Acres for Cartoon Network worldwide. Animation Collective CEO Larry Schwarz added, “We’re so excited to be partnering with CAKE to bring the work we’ve done back to viewers and we look forward to being able to continue telling these stories and developing our characters through brand new episodes and seasons.”
