Janosch has been one of the most successful German license themes for over 30 years. Stories about the Tiger Duck, tiger and bear and a little green frog called Günter Kastenfrosch are not only popular among preschool children, but also among parents and grandparents that now welcome the newest generation of this famous Janosch theme. The artist and children’s book author Janosch has been writing, sketching and drawing for the weekly issue of the German ZEITmagazin since July 2014.
Currently more than 40 renowned licensees from different industries and product fields work together on different projects. The German airline CONDOR for example recently introduced their Janosch holiday plane, a boeing 767, in July 2014.
The main characters Tiger Duck, Tiger, Bear and Günter Kastenfrosch embody the spirit of friendship in their stories. JANOSCH’s protagonists are unconventional, fun-loving and freedom-loving – just like the artist himself. All of the characters convey positive emotions and the emancipation of the child. Together they go on adventures, face danger and fear and learn about the meaning of friendship and team spirit.
