UK pubcaster CBBC has picked up animated comedy Sidekick as part of a deal from Nelvana Enterprises.
The series, created and executive produced by Todd Kauffman, portrays a superhero sidekick, Eric Needles, who moves to first string hero status when his mentor, Maxum Man, disappears.
Sidekick, produced by Nelvana, first debuted in 2010 on YTV, before premiering a year later on Cartoon Network US.
CBBC is set to air the first two seasons, or 52 half hours, of the Canadian cartoon.
