Cloudco Entertainment in the United States, in conjunction with co-production partners, Watchnext Media in France and Kavaleer Productions in Ireland, are pleased to announce the greenlight and production commencement of Season 3 of their animated hit comedy series Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese. Season 3’s additional 52 x 11’ episodes have been commissioned by the French television network Gulli while simultaneously ordered by the BBC in the UK, KidsME (the Chindrel Content Factory of De Agostini Group) in Italy, and Ireland’s RTE. This latest order will bring the total number of 11’ animated episodes to 156.
Based on an original IP from Cloudco Entertainment, Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese is the “Brady Bunch meets Modern Family” in an animated comedic take on a blended family sitcom, with Dad’s “sons” — a boy, a dog, and a mouse — and Mom’s “daughters” – a girl, a cat, and a piece of anthropomorphic cheese – learning to live together under one roof. Launching late last year to consistently high ratings on both the BBC and DeAKids, Season 1 debuted in late May 2020 on Gulli as the #1 rated show in France for both children (ages 4-10) and teens (ages 11-14). Season 2 production recently wrapped and episodes have already debuted in many territories globally, including Germany (SuperRTL), the UK (CBBC), Gulli (France), Canada (Family Channel), SIC Impresa (Portugal) and DeKids (Italy), with launches coming soon in Benelux and CEE (Disney), Spain (EITB), the Baltics (Duo Media Networks/Kidzone), Ireland (RTE), and the Middle East (MBC).
“Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese – the show itself, but especially its title characters – have all become fun, hilarious, and indelible members of our own collective families at Watchnext Media, Kavaleer Productions, and Cloudco Entertainment. Suprising, quirky, competitive, and entertaining, we’re all excited by the opportunity to bring more of their stories to life in Season 3, and in doing so, sharing more of what makes them the funniest, most lovable, animated blended family known to kids today.” – Philippe Alessandri, President of Watchnext Media; Andrew Kavanagh, President of Kavaleer Productions; and Sean Gorman, President of Cloudco Entertainment

A huge success for this hilarious and resolutely modern sitcom established as a must. Kids will be delighted to discover, on their favorite channel, the new adventures this family like no other and yet so endearing! – Philippe Bony, President of Gulli
