Bubble Guppies first launched in the US in 2011 and after reaching international markets by the end of the year reached 13.2 million viewers across eight countries including Australia, Italy and the UK.
The series, which features singing, dancing, jokes, games and adventures, follows the everyday lives of preschoolers who happen to have tropical fish tales.
