After recent sales to Finland and Israel, stop-motion preschool series Toby’s Travelling Circus from Komixx Entertainment is headed to four more global broadcasters.
NRK (Norway); MediaCorp (Singapore); ABC TV (Australia) and S4C (Wales) will join public service Finnish broadcaster Yle and Hop TV in Israel, all of which have picked up all 52 episodes of the animated property. Broadcast schedules vary but the animation series is due to air later this year in select regions.
ABC TV has also secured the DVD and digital rights to the series for its home entertainment market.
The deals were secured by show distributor Union Media.
In December 2012, Toby’s Travelling Circus was the top program on Channel 5′s milkshake! in the UK for children ages four to nine. The stop-frame-animated series, produced by Mackinnon & Saunders, features the adventures of Toby, a seven year-old boy who is the leader and ringmaster of his family’s traveling circus.
