Redrover and ToonBox Entertainment have announced that Dutch-based KidsPlant Distribution is set to rep its 26 x 22-minute stereoscopic 3D kids series Bolts and Blip in Benelux.
It is also on board to handle distribution rights for the TV series and the recently released Bolts and Blip movie in Germany, Benelux, Scandinavia and Poland.
The series, which follows the adventures of two best robot friends who find themselves in over their heads after being suddenly drafted into the Lunar League of Robotic Sports, debuted in 2D on Canal+ (France) in April 2010 and in 3D on 3net (US) in September 2011.
It has since gone on to air in more than 70 territories in 2D and on 3D channels including 3net (US), BSkyB (UK), and Skylife (Korea).
The brand has also successfully diversified into the digital apps space with two apps currently available for iOS mobile devices on the App Store – Exploring the Solar System and Bolts and Blip – Quest of the Battle-Bots.
Plans are also in the works to launch a toy line including action figures and water blasters in Europe.
