Tails of Whimsy Partners With OddBot to Produce “Mackie McKeens”

We have BIG news and we’ve been bursting to share it with YOU!

Los Angeles-based animation studio, OddBot, Inc. has optioned “The Mighty Machines of Mackie McKeens”  from Tails of Whimsy to develop the property as an animated television series. 

What exactly does “option” mean? OddBot is a well-known, Emmy nominated animation studio in Los Angeles that handles animation for companies like Disney, PBS Kids (Sprout), Warner Brothers, Amazon and even American Greetings. In this case, they loved our property, “The Mighty Machines of Mackie McKeens,” so much that they wanted to develop it themselves. 

So instead of the networks coming to OddBot with a project to animate, OddBot will create treatments based on Mackie and pitch it to the networks. Because of their close working relationships with these networks, they may even work directly in partnership with them to bring the series to fruition.

All of this takes time and patience, but with any luck, kids ages 2-6 will see “Mackie” on screen. We are working on getting picture books ready to submit to publishers, and toy manufacturers have already shown interest. So, if you just had a baby or a grandchild, it could be that at some point they will be watching “Mackie” on TV or their preferred digital device!
