Relish, well known for its app store hit Weirdwood Manor, sees this acquisition as a way to grow its in-house animation team and bolster its ability to create one of a kind multiplatform digital experiences.

Rocket Cartoons is an indie animation studio and the first original content studio in Costa Rica. Known for its high-quality short-form work such as Kip Van Creepy (DreamWorksTV) and Terror in Doomsville (Cartoon Network). They have seen their creations sold into more than 40 territories worldwide. Relish CEO Paul Pattison and Rocket CCO, Leo Trinidad, first met at the Kidscreen Summit in February 2018, and the relationship took off from there.

Paul Pattison of Relish, said: "Rocket is a talented and nimble team of artists and creators, who will help us round out our 2D and 3D animation offering and boost our ability to create original content that travels well globally".

This new phase of the Relish and Rocket relationship comes after working together for the past two years on successful projects including, the Kidscreen Award-nominated 2D series Treasure X and a new 3D CGI series called Kindi Kids (both for Moose Toys). Each property has achieved more than 30 million views on YouTube. The next big project for Relish + Rocket is a co-production of "Super Punch," a 2D animated digital series for kids in the pipeline for Cartoon Network Latin America.

While the Rocket team will join Relish effective immediately — with its leadership team assuming senior roles — the Rocket Cartoons brand will continue to exist and co-develop IP under a first-look deal with Relish.
