TV-Loonland is following up its sale of short-form, CGI series The Owl to the BBC with a bevy of broadcasting deals, including a pan-regional pay-TV rights pact with Jetix covering the US, Latin America, Nordic territories, Japan, India and Pakistan.

Additionally French broadcaster Canal J and Mini Mini in Poland have picked up licensed pay-TV rights.

But the deals don’t stop there. The 52 x one-minute shorts are slated for broadcast on Canadian free and pay-TV (YTV and Societé Radio Canada), VEO TV Digital Spain, DR TV Denmark and Polish preschool channel Canal + Cyfrowy.

On the non-linear side, Universal Family Entertainment in Germany has snapped up DVD rights, while Player X is handling mobile in the UK, and Bonsai Channel in Italy has retained territorial VOD and IPTV rights to the comic series about a disaster-prone owl.
