Toronto, Canada-based Breakthrough Entertainment (Terrific Trucks) has snapped up North American distribution rights to the CGI-animated comedy Silly Seasons from Johannesburg, South Africa’s The Flying Circus.

The 26 x 24-minute nature-themed series for kids ages eight to 12 follows the lives of four girls who live in a fantasy world inhabited by a group of exotic and eccentric anthropomorphic animals and plants.

Silly Seasons features an ethnically diverse cast, with each main character representing one of the four seasons. It uses traditional key-frame animation with motion capture, one of Flying Circus’ primary production tools.

Flying Circus has worked on other series  including Inside Job and Rocketboy, and has handled the post-production for localization of TV spots and trailers for Disney for the last decade.
