WildBrain to debut Keith Chapman’s Jonny Jetboy at MIPCOM 2023

“It’s been an awesome journey so far – but I know this is just the beginning for Jonny,” said Chapman.

WildBrain is launching Jonny Jetboy – a new kids’ series from PAW Patrol creator Keith Chapman – at MIPJUNIOR and MIPCOM 2023.

Targeted at kids aged four to seven, Jonny Jetboy follows the adventures of Jonny Jones, the youngest member of a family of superheroes known as the JetFleet. Each week, Jonny will learn from his parents, sister – and even the family tortoise – about what it takes to be a true hero as they face off against the city’s villains.

Jonny Jetboy is produced by iQIYI in collaboration with WildBrain as animation supervisor. The animation production was completed by China’s WinSing Animation Studio.

“I’m thrilled that Jonny Jetboy is now ready to be launched to the international market,” said Chapman.

“It’s been an awesome journey so far, but I know this is just the beginning for Jonny. I can’t wait to see the series blast into the hearts and homes of families all around the world.”

Caroline Tyre, VP Global Sales & Rights Strategy at WildBrain, added: “It’s been fantastic to collaborate with iQIYI on Jonny Jetboy and to see another of Keith Chapman’s creations come to life.

“With Jonny Jetboy, Keith has once again used his creative genius to craft a series with all the right ingredients to entertain families worldwide, including action-packed adventures, heroic characters and high-tech gadgets. We can’t wait to introduce Jonny and the JetFleet to the international market at MIPJUNIOR and MIPCOM.”

Xiaoxuan Yang, Vice President of iQIYI, continued: “Deep within every child’s heart lies the dream of becoming a hero. I am delighted to collaborate with Keith and the Wildbrain team to unveil an extraordinary tale of a flying-themed hero, which will captivate children globally. I hope that iQIYI and Wildbrain can explore deeper collaboration beyond content acquisition.”

WildBrain holds worldwide distribution rights for Jonny Jetboy, excluding greater China. The firm’s wider slate for the market includes two additional new originals: the CG-animated preschool show Caillou and a new version of comedy series, Johnny Test.
