Canadian online preschool video platform Kidobi has struck a digital partnership deal with German media company m4e/Telescreen that will see Kidobi acquire subscription video on demand rights to five animated preschool series in Canada and the US.

The series include Anton (26 x five-minute), Brothers Flub (26 x 22-minute), Plonsters (52 x three-minute), Rudi & Trudi (26 x 11-minute) and Salty’s Lighthouse (40 x 11-minute).

The latest partnership follows Kidobi’s largest deal to date a week ago when it secured 150 hours of kids programming in five languages (English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian) from Spanish producer/distributor Motion Pictures. Series that will be available starting next month include Van Dogh (104 x four-minute), Zumbers (150 x three-minute), Green Light (26 x five-minute),  and Raindrop (26 x 26-monute).

Kidobi also made a deal in January that saw the platform acquire digital and VoD rights for preschool series Gombby’s Green Island from Lisbon, Portugal-based Big Storm Studios.

Since its launch in summer 2011, Kidobi has now acquired more than 500 hours of preschool content.
