At last…. After 4 years of battling it out in our home country we’ve finally got it here ….
It is an incredible feeling each time Pocoyo is released in another country, but of course this time … just that little bit more… It has been a real battle to release Pocoyo in Spain, but at last we’ve sold it at home … strange, no?! Sometimes gaining the support and recognition of those closest to you is the most complicated. Today the people with whom we’re working in TVE have committed to Pocoyo and are really excited. This makes us feel that the whole thing has been worth it.
You can’t imagine the effort we’ve put in to ‘get out there’ in our own country: the energy, meetings, calls, emails, etc we’ve had to deal with to get to this point. Surprisingly, it was the English companies, companies from one of the most competitive markets and the leaders in the pre-school world, who believed in us – the new kids on the block. Companies and people, above all people, Anne, Emmanuelle, Steven, Jon, Giles, Nadine, David, Jerry … they saw and they believed…
Pocoyo is happy, and Elly and Pato. Yesterday afternoon they arrived late to work – we caught them and we took a photo of them in Madrid’s great Gran Via … 100 metres from our offices … People don’t seem too shocked, do they?!
