Superights is proud to announce the acquisition of the distribution rights of “DOOPIE” (26×7’), a live action series targeted at 3 to 5 year-old children.
Produced by Dutch studio SUBMARINE, founded by Bruno FELIX, “DOOPIE” invites young viewers in sweet and original stories.
Doopie, a plush toy who lives in a store, goes out into the world, full of enthusiasm. Every day, he meets other children, with whom he has all kinds of adventures. Thanks to Doopie‘s adventurous and inquisitive nature, they land in many bizarre situations, which Doopie ‘solves’ in his own unique, completely illogical, but humorous way!
This colorful program helps children in their daily life learning process through the adventures of our hero Doopie, and will be presented at the upcoming Miptv.
