Endemol Shine Group has finalised a deal to license the short form series Aliens Love Underpants And… to Disney Junior US.

The series will now feature across Disney’s linear channels and the DisneyNOW App.

Produced by Tiger Aspect Productions, Aliens Love Underpants And… is based on the award-winning book series of the same name, published by Simon and Schuster. The series has sold over three million copies worldwide in 20 languages.

The run of shorts was originally commissioned by Sky Kids in the UK and Ireland and available to watch on demand on all Sky Kids VOD platforms and the Now TV Kids Pass. It features five alien heroes singing and dancing to catchy songs about their great loves, including pets, birthdays and underpants.

Sky commissioned an Aliens Love Underpants And… game, available to Sky customers via the Sky Kids app from last month. The game, called Aliens Love Underpants And The Space Catapult, is produced by digital agency Jollywise who worked with Sky and Tiger-Aspect Productions.

In the game children select one of the five alien heroes, catapulting them from the washing line in space to see how far they can travel – collecting star boosters and hitching rides on spaceships along the way.

Tiger Aspect’s head of kids and animation Tom Beattie, said: “I am so pleased that our underpants loving aliens are heading to the US and Disney Junior is the perfect home. The mobile game is great fun and the kids will love engaging with the characters.”

The Aliens Love Underpants And…series is being distributed by Endemol Shine International with licensing through through Endemol Shine Group.
