4Licensing is launching the licensing program for the new animated series “Rocket Monkeys,” which currently airs on Nickelodeon globally, as well as Teletoon in Canada.
4Licensing now plans to capitalize on the series unique characters, with an initial focus on toys, apparel, games and trend product categories.
“Rocket Monkeys” follows the intergalactic adventures of the Monkeynauts and brothers, Gus and Wally. The action-comedy series, created by Breakthrough Entertainment, launched on Nickelodeon earlier this month.
"With the launch of the Rocket Monkeys licensing program, we are introducing a brand that will entertain and captivate children all around the world," says Bruce R. Foster, interim chief executive officer, 4LC. "We are excited to be working with a children’s property that is as action-packed and adventurous as it is quirky and humorous. We are confident that the series’ multi-faceted elements combined with the broadcast support of Nickelodeon worldwide and Teletoon in Canada will enhance the appeal of Rocket Monkeys, and consumer interest in the property will expand well beyond the television screen into engaging merchandise."
