The Gaelic version of Balloon Barnyard has been picked up by Irish-language broadcaster TG4, which will bow the animated series in December.

The 26 x seven-minute preschool show, commissioned by Disney Junior Australia and produced by Aussie indie Like A Photon Creative, follows the adventure of two donkeys named Pip and Streak that have superhero ambitions.

The show has already been licensed to Sweden’s SVT, Daekyo Broadcasting in Korea, Emirates Inflight in the UAE and ABC Commercial in Australia for a local DVD and iTunes release. It has also been acquired by Korean SVOD platform Kids1TV, along with JY Entertainment in China.

The toon is distributed worldwide by Australian Children’s Television Foundation.
