Jetix Europe has acquired European pay-TV rights to the 26 x 30-minute Flash series Iggy Arbuckle. The co-pro between Toronto, Canada-based Blueprint Entertainment and Washington, DC’s Nat Geo Kids Entertainment will be delivered to all Jetix Europe channels for August 2007.
Jetix has also acquired TV distribution rights (with the exception of free TV in Germany and all French-speaking regions), home entertainment rights and consumer product rights across most of Europe. Disney’s Buena Vista International Television will work towards growing the show’s international footprint with additional sales at MIPTV in April.
Currently airing on Teletoon in Canada, Iggy Arbuckle is a comedy-adventure series with an ecological bent, targeting six to 11s.
