CTIA: InfoSpace times 4

LOS ANGELES — After making three announcements early this morning, Bellevue-based InfoSpace made a fourth.

InfoSpace said it has signed deals with Classic Media and Bagdasarian Productions to bring some of the world’s most famous classic movie and TV stars to mobile, including “Alvin & the Chipmunks,” “Rocky & Bullwinkle” and others.

Classic Media is licensing content to InfoSpace for personalization products for mobile phones from their iconic entertainment characters, including Rocky & Bullwinkle, Underdog, Lassie, Dick Tracy, Richie Rich, Mr. Magoo, Casper the Friendly Ghost, Felix the Cat, Peter Cottontail, Hot Stuff, The Little Drummer Boy, and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.

The alliance with Bagdasarian Productions allows InfoSpace to capture the squeaky voices and unforgettable faces of the most famous chipmunks in the world, Alvin, Simon and Theodore in the form of audio tones and original graphics for mobile phones.

The three earlier announcements involved a content deal with Tony Hawk, a deal with Activision and a new release of InfoSpace’s Find It! search application.
