Toronto, Canada-based 9 Story Entertainment has sold animated preschool series Peg + Cat to ABC TV Australia, HOP (Israel), Mini-Mini (Poland) and E-Junior (UAE) following the show’s launch earlier this month on PBS Kids in the US.
The 80 x 11-minute math-based series was created by creative director, animator and children’s writer Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Postcards from Buster) and is animated and distributed by 9 Story for The Fred Rogers Company and PBS Kids.
The series follows an spirited little girl, Peg, and her sidekick, Cat, as they encounter unexpected problems that require creative solutions.
In the US, Peg + Cat was recently the focus of a health-based marketing promotion in partnership between PBS Kids and Whole Foods.
