RTV Family Entertainment has recently signed licensing deals with German broadcasters Super RTL and ORF. ORF will be picking up THE COUNTRY MOUSE AND THE CITY MOUSE ADVENTURES, the second season of Rolf Kaukas FIX & FOXI AND FRIENDS as well as the series ROTTEN RALPH, which was successfully introduced to Germany in the branded block "Ravensburger TV" on Super RTL. Super RTL acquired the TV licenses for RTVs new animation series GNARFS. GNARFS was produced by RTV in association with Phenomedia AG and Hahn Film, and the characters from this series also are a highlight of RTVs future merchandising activities. Super RTL has also secured the rights to the feature film THE MAGIC PUDDING. Produced by Energee, RTVs Australian subsidiary, THE MAGIC PUDDING is based on the classic novel by Norman Lindsay, and features the voice talent of John Cleese, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush and Toni Collette.
