January 28, 2021
Following a string of international broadcast deals, 3D Sparrow celebrates Netflix’s renewal of Booba, for its third season, along with the new Booba short ‘Food Puzzle’. The season will be streamed internationally from February.
Booba, a non-dialogue family show created by 3D Sparrow, features the adventures of a joyful, funny and curious little hobgoblin called Booba, who often finds himself in ridiculous, but entertaining situations. Since the show was launched in 2016, it has become one of the most watched children’s entertainment shows on streaming platforms, achieving more than 9.4 billion views to date across Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and others, as well as airing with broadcasters around the world.
Season 3 will launch in February 2021 on Netflix, the new 26 episodes follows the adventures of Booba and his friends Loola, Spike and Mr Beak, as they travel through time, sometimes even meeting Booba’s own counterpart, from the past and the future. The renewal of the show in this deal, which also includes the preceding series 1 and 2, as well as the new Booba short ‘Food Puzzle’, is evidence of the show’s impressive growth in popularity.
From streaming to broadcasting: 3D Sparrow also celebrates a string of international deals signed in Q4 2020, including Turner Turkey, TV2 Norway and TV Educa Chile, its first deal in Latin America. In Q1 this year, RTL Croatia and TV Poland will launch Booba on their popular children’s channels RTL Kockica and TVP ABC.
Sandra Lanc, head of content distribution, 3D Sparrow, said: “Booba has proven popular with both broadcasters and streaming platforms, as he continues his mission to entertain children around the world. He even has a home on Kedoo Entertainment’s children’s animation channel Super Toons TV, which just launched in Europe on Samsung’s new streaming service Samsung TV Plus. At a time when children are struggling with not seeing their friends, and parents are desperate to entertain their children with safe content, we are happy that Booba gives peace of mind to families by guaranteeing laughs in every episode.”
