“We are very happy to be contributing to Captain Flinn’s anti-bullyinbg crusade around the world, with great new partners on board” – Christophe Goldberger, Managing Director at GoldBee.
The series was also recently picked up by the U.K.’s POP channel, SVT Sveriges Television AB in Sweden, and CSC Media Group for Africa.
Packed with pirate talk and swashbuckling fun each episode follows four kids: Flinn, Pearl, Tom and Violet as they set sail on a pirate ship to keep despicable, prehistoric, pirate dinosaur baddies Captain T Rex, Stig the stegosaurus, Dippy the diplodocus, Tricky the triceratops and Terry the pterodactyl from cowardly wrong-doings across the Seven-and-a-half Seas. These four seafarers boldly go where no young ones have gone before in silly pirate adventures full of magic, singing, curses and superstitions… but only very silly ones.
In 2015 Captain Flinn and The Pirate Dinosaurs won the Gold Pixie Award at the 7th Annual Pixie Awards for its excellent work in the areas of motion graphics, visual effects and animation. The series has also won Best TV Pilot and the prestigious Arlecchino Award for Best Book Based Work, an esteemed accolade of the Cartoons On The Bay Pulcinella Awards, International Television and Cross Media Animation Festival held in Italy.
