Founded in 1978, The Telly Awards is the premiere award honoring the finest video and film productions in the world. Previous inductees include Nickelodeon, Disney and Hallmark. The Dove Foundation is a nonprofit pro-family organization established to encourage and promote the creation, production, distribution and consumption of wholesome family entertainment.

The late Steve Allen, entertainer and Dove advisor called the Dove Seal, "the Good Housekeeping Seal for family entertainment."
"Having The Rockimals recognized by the Telly Awards and as 'Family-Approved' by the Dove Foundation is extremely gratifying," said Frank Gianotti, Producer of The Rockimals. "Our goal was to develop an exciting venue to entertain kids while equally attracting parents and grandparents with the music from past generations. We will continue to incorporate creative ways of introducing popular styles and genres of music to preschoolers with the idea of being a program suited for the entire family. The Telly Awards receives over 13,000 entries each year and The Rockimals was selected for awards in ten categories. Th e Dove Seal sets the industry standard for family entertainment. We are proud to have The Rockimals included in these exclusive groups."

"The Telly Awards recognizes The Rockimals among this year's best productions, both nationally and internationally and the Dove Seal acknowledges that The Rockimals represents clean, wholesome, quality entertainment, free from offensive material. This recognition compliments the iParenting Media Awards received last month and our selection into the Kids First Film Festival.
