The preschool comedy series has also been picked up by Singapore’s VOD service HOOQ and Malaysian VOD service iflix, which will air it in 140 countries. The minimal-dialogue show has also launched in the US on VOD service Zone-ify TV.
Launched in 2013, on Hong Kong media conglom Next Media’s nxTomo app, before being picked up by Disney XD (US) and Télétoon+ (France), Oddbods’ 180 episodes targets kids three-to six-years-old. The series has also been picked up by Netlix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
One Animation also locked in new deals with HOOQ and iflix for its educational preschool series Rob the Robot (104 x 11 minutes). The adventure toon revolves around a curious robot as he explores the galaxy one planet at a time with his friends. The property airs across 75 countries and has been acquired by a number of broadcasters, including NRK (Norway), SVT (Sweden) and Disney Junior (Southeast Asia).
