The Scaredy Cats is a concept for a series of interactive books, animated episodes, and products centered around six, courageous cats who form a team to defend the world from the paranormal creatures that haunt children at night. In the tradition of popular 80’s fantasy films and team-based Saturday morning cartoons, The Scaredy Cats are on their way to take over the youth entertainment market!

Why a Team of Cats?

Unless you’re from another planet, you know that cats absolutely dominate the internet. 36 million households in the U.S. alone own and adore cats. Yet as popular as cats are, there is still no cat-centric form of family entertainment that has truly explored the mysterious, superstitious mythology behind house cats, or the unique and eccentric traits that have made cats such an endearing part of pop culture.
The Scaredy Cats are finally here to give fantasy fans the frisky, complex and comedic heroes they’ve been waiting for. The haunting and hair-raising premise will appeal to today’s youth, and adult audiences alike, who love binge-worthy supernatural mysteries, witty superhero team movies, and silly pet humor.
Along with the fun, heroic, premise, we also focus on the important issues being faced by unsheltered and unadopted animals. The team combat and raise awareness on important issues like animal neglect, abuse, and the need for family and adoption.

Franchise Potential: Fandom Ready

Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, Scooby Doo, Stranger Things… what do all these series have in common? They are all hundred-million dollar properties and a part of entertainment history. It’s no coincidence that they all have a supernatural premise. The reality is, we love the mysteries of the paranormal.
GHOSTBUSTERS
700 Million
SCOOBY DOO
460 Million
HARRY POTTER
7.66 Billion
Supernatural series are not only for underground fans anymore. They have now become a part of pop culture. Fans pour hundreds of billions of dollars into films, video games, merchandise, collectibles, and theme park attractions each year. These properties have generated viral buzz and social conversation, becoming much more than just a simple piece of entertainment.
The Scaredy Cats sets that same buzzworthy tone, blending the dark and chilling atmosphere of a classic horror flick, with mysterious and shocking reveals along the way. Add comedy and memorable heartfelt moments and characters, and you have a winning formula that has the potential to break into pop culture and create a dedicated fandom of all ages.

Demographic

The Scaredy Cats is action based, family entertainment, but it does feature dark visuals, and touches upon some thought-provoking subjects. We feel that any child that loved a pet team-up series like “Paw Patrol,” but has outgrown the juvenile nature of their premise, is ready for the depth and life lessons that The Scaredy Cats has to offer.
With that being said, The Scaredy Cats is in no way “just for kids.” The sharp cat “puns” and witty banter will have comedy fans of any age in stitches. The references and nods to retro after-school cartoons, iconic films, and horror influences will have any lover of ‘80s and ‘90s nostalgia wanting more.

Scares With a Positive Twist

These cats don’t just hunt and catch simple ghosts. There is an actual psychological purpose involved. The real premise of the franchise is about helping young people learn to deal with anxiety, and the fears of modern-day life. Our heroes help them conquer their fears in an emotional, entertaining and heartfelt way.
The stories, at their core, contain global themes about bullying, abuse, and abandonment; they explore the idea of finding your place in the world, dealing with insecurities, and overcoming fears by working with others that share similar struggles. The Scaredy Cats teaches contemporary adolescents that they must band together, focusing on their similarities over their differences, in order to save the world from the growing plague of fear and anxiety that haunts us all.
