The latest deal comes on the heels of Alphanim sewing up broadcasting deals for the series with US premium subscription channel Starz, Discovery Kids in Asia, TVO forCanada, ATV (Turkey), Paka Paka (Argentina) and French-language channel TV5 Monde for its multi-territorial feeds.
Other broadcasters already on board include France5 (France), RTBF and VTM (Belgium), RTS (Switzerland), Minimax (Central and Eastern Europe), Noga (Israël), Al Jazeera (the Middle East), Canal Plus (Poland), Natseven (Malaysia) and Okto (Singapore).

Along with new broadcasters, the series is also tapping into the consumer products market with a French licensing program (science games, arts and crafts, publishing, stationery).
