YouTube sensation Booba appoints IMG to launch licensed products

UK animation studio 3D Sparrow Group has appointed IMG to extend Booba, the globally-loved non-dialogue preschool family show following the adventures of a joyful, funny and curious creature called Booba and his friends, through product and brand licensing partnerships.

The agreement will see the licensing agency further expand Booba’s global footprint across wider lifestyle categories for fans of the show to enjoy, including toys, apparel, fast-moving consumer goods, events and promotions.

Booba reached more than 13 billion YouTube views and stands as one of the top-rated kids’ shows on Netflix, since first airing on the digital platform in 2017. The show is also available worldwide on Amazon Prime, as well as through TV broadcasters in more than 45 countries.

Now in its fourth series, the show is loved for the entertaining situations Booba and his friends find themselves in while trying to explore the world around them. In 2021, 3D Sparrow collaborated with Sony Music to premiere the first-ever Booba music video with Avicii.

Season 4 will be fully available later this year.
