Canada's Cuppa Coffee Studios Sells Animated Comedies to Hulu and Amazon

The cartoon factory also plans a spinoff of "Life's a Zoo," which ran for two seasons on Hulu's Smosh channel.

CANNES – Canadian animation studio Cuppa Coffee Studios has sold a slate of shows to Hulu and Amazon.

The U.S. digital platforms bought in all six animated series, including Tigga and Togga, Nerdland, A Very Barry Christmas, Bruno, Banana Bunch and two seasons of the stop-motion reality-show spoof Life's a Zoo.

The library deal follows the debut of Life's a Zoo on YouTube's Shut Up! Cartoons after it originated on Teletoon, Canada's cable cartoon channel.

Life's a Zoo also ran on SBS in Australia.

Cuppa Coffee Studios topper Adam Shaheen is also producing The Pen, a spinoff from Life's a Zoo that is being shopped at MIPCOM next week.

The Pen follows Ray and Jake, two original characters from Life's a Zoo, who are incompetent cops trying to clear their names.
