FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA’S LET’S MOVE! INITIATIVE
A collaboration between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Ad Council and WBCP, the program is a series of public service announcements designed to address childhood obesity and encourage children and families to lead active and healthy lifestyles. The PSAs feature Warner Bros.’ legendary Looney Tunes characters Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety and Taz.
LOONEY TUNES ACTIVE!
The naturally energetic nature of the Looney Tunes makes them the ideal ambassadors of an active lifestyle for kids everywhere. Launched in 2006, Looney Tunes Active! has quickly evolved into one of the world’s most dynamic licensing programs, with WBCP Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) helping to lead the charge.
The global initiative also involves ongoing partnerships with three major league basketball leagues including France’s French Basketball Federation, Germany’s Beko BBL Basketball League and Italy’s Federazione Italiana Pallacenestro. Through mini-basketball tournaments, costume character appearances and team-sponsored events, these leagues continue to encourage kids to maintain an active lifestyle while having fun.
PROMOTING HEALTHY EATING
As Warner Bros. Consumer Products continues its effort to promote healthy and active lifestyles for kids, Tom and Jerry have partnered with well-known German chef Stefan Marquard to teach kids how to cook and eat healthily. The collaboration has resulted in some enticing offerings including a six-city tour throughout Germany and events such as the Rewe Family: Das Sommerfest.
CESAR MILLAN FOUNDATION
Warner Bros. Consumer Products partnered with Cesar Millan, the Millan Foundation and the North Shore Animal League America to host the second annual “National Family Pack Walk” sponsored by Scooby-Doo in Washington D.C. on September 29, 2012.
All proceeds benefitted the Foundation’s continued efforts to help rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused and abandoned dogs. In addition, the event highlighted the work of the Mutt-i-Grees educational program – innovative in-school curriculum that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics of shelter dogs. With over 10,000 in attendance on the National Mall, the event secured media coverage spanning the globe and over $165,000 was donated to the Foundation.
