SeaWorld and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Announce Franklin and Friends Partnership:

The internationally renowned book and TV series character Franklin, created by Paulette Bourgeois and Brenda Clark, embarks on new adventures at SeaWorld parks that combines the appeal of the Franklin & Friends characters with the popular SeaWorld brand.

Beginning January 2013, the company’s new SeaWorld Kids brand and Nelvana will team up to introduce kids and families to in-park Franklin characters, TV specials, books and merchandise.

Franklin will take up residence at the three SeaWorld parks for the year, where guests will be able to meet this classic character, take photos and get autographs. The parks include:

  • SeaWorld Florida beginning with the “Just for Kids” event January 2013
  • SeaWorld Texas beginning with the “Just for Kids” event April 2013
  • SeaWorld California beginning with the “Spring into Night” event March 2013
  • “This partnership is a ‘natural’ for us to create fun, family experiences that connect young kids to animals and the world we share,” said Scott Helmstedter, Chief Creative Officer for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “SeaWorld Kids is a brand dedicated to specifically connecting children with animals and nature, and Franklin is an enduring, much-loved animal character that brings adventure to kids. We look forward to working together to create unique opportunities for the Franklin and Friends’ characters to have outdoor adventures and also educate viewers along the way.”
