The cartoon series will be one of the outstanding properties the Spanish company BRB Internacional will present at the upcoming edition of NATPE, to be held at the end of this month in Las Vegas. On the strength of great audience success in both Latin America (where it is aired through Jetix Latin America) and the U.S. (where it's known as EON KID on Kids WB!), the series will premiere in open broadcasting in Portugal on TVI, which will air it every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 am, starting Feb. 2nd.
Also, Ecuavisa in Ecuador, Channel One Russian Worldwide in Russia, B92 in Serbia, and Spacetoon TV in the Middle East, will air the series. In Spain, Famosa plans to launch a line of toys, following the excellent response to its first collection. In Chile, Imexporta is marketing an attractive line of action figures. And Playmates has been chosen as the partner in the area of related toy spinoffs in Mexico, the U.S., Canada and Australia, while many other projects are in the works.
Set in a future world overrun by robots, IRON KID consists of 26 episodes done in 3D. The story follows Marty, an intrepid teenager who, after discovering the legendary Fist of Eon, becomes the leader of a centuries-old battle between good and evil.
