A year after setting up offices in Shanghai, the move has started to pay off for Taffy Entertainment, as the distributor has just inked deals with broadcasters across Asia for four of its toons.

Marvel Entertainment-inspired 26 x 22-minuter Fantastic Four has been picked up by Asia TV (Hong Kong), ABS-CBN (Philippines) and OBS (Korea), while Animax (Korea) and Starlight (Packistan) have snapped up the rights to the first season of Code Lyoko.

Finally, Cartoon Network (India), Cineplex (Thailand) and TPI (Indonesia) have lined up for Dive Olly Dive! (52 x 11 minutes), and HBO Asia has scooped up 52 x 13-minute Dr. Dog.
