Strawberry Shortcake created by Barbi Sargent acquired by DHX Media.

DHX Media is feeding its appetite for more kids fare with a whole lot of Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake.

The Canadian media company is shelling out US$345 million to acquire the entertainment division of New York-based Iconix Brand Group, which includes a 100% controlling interest in Strawberry Shortcake and an 80% interest in Peanuts.  “I think both Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake are a fantastic extension of what we’re doing, and unlike anything else we have in our portfolio. They’re a great fit for DHX not only the consumer products side, but also in terms of content and distribution.”

“The addition of Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake means that our DHX Brands business is a much more significant part of our total revenue than it has ever been before. We will see how else we can expand the licensing business and focus on the current, excellent partners they have in licensing, and see what more we can do for them. We’ve been committed to growing the DHX Brands part of our business, and with the addition of Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake, it really gives a scope and scale that is more than a tenfold increase,” DeNure says.

As for Strawberry Shortcake, Iconix and DHX teamed up last year to produce a new animated series based on the brand, which Iconix acquired in February 2015 from American Greetings for US$105 million. The long-term agreement between DHX and Iconix would see the companies co-develop, finance and produce at least 39 new half-hour episodes of Strawberry Shortcake, with the option to produce more. Moving forward, DHX plans to continue its development of the series without partners.

“These characters are known around the world and that’s an amazing legacy,” DeNure says. “We’re thrilled to be the partners and custodians of that.”

The iconic IPs join DHX properties like Teletubbies, Twirlywoos, Yo Gabba Gabba!, In the Night Garden and Caillou.
