This deal marks a further commitment to DECODEs programming by the broadcaster, which already airs a number of series including the primetime 2D animation BROMWELL HIGH as well as FRANNYS FEET and THE SAVE-UMS! for pre-schoolers.

Dominique Bazay, vp distribution at DECODE Ent., said, DECODE titles do very well in ABCs Kids schedule and I know the unique humor and style of PLANET SKETCH will be a hit with Australian Kids.

Launching at MIPCOM, PLANET SKETCH (13x11), commissioned by CiTV and Teletoon Canada, has also recently sold to Cartoon Network Latin America and M-Net in South Africa. Aimed at 7-11 year olds, the show consists of recurring characters in a rapid-fire, high-energy format, which will grab the attention and tickle the funny bone of its young audience.
