Making animated television shows?how cool is that? Coolabi produces and distributes primarily children's shows in the UK; it also licenses its catalog of films, TV shows, books, and other intellectual property. Current properties include The Large Family, Poppy Cat, Fungus the Bogeyman, and The Worst Witch . Coolabi also licenses brands unrelated to TV programming for use in merchandise -- such properties include the Purple Ronnie line of gifts and greeting cards and Scarlett & Crimson book series for girls. Coolabi began as Alibi Communications in 1999, merged with Coolebah in 2004, and took its current name in 2005. The company took itself private through a management buyout that closed at the end of 2011.
