Toronto, Canada-based kaboom! Entertainment, the kids and family label for Phase 4 Films, has secured a deal with American Greetings to represent the French Canadian DVD and EST rights for the new CGI-animated Strawberry Shortcake (seasons one and two) and Care Bears (season one) series.
Both revamped series are set to launch at retail by the end of this year.
According to Phase 4 Films’ president and CEO Berry Meyerowitz, the French-language version of Strawberry Shortcake has been a top performing property in Quebec for a number of years under representation by kaboom!
Strawberry Shortcake currently airs on Disney Junior in Canada while Care Bears is broadcast on SRC Canada.
The latest deal comes on the heels of kaboom! inking a deal with Walmart to launch Octonauts and My Big Friend DVD sets in Canadian Walmarts from November 19.
