TORONTO (July 7, 2009) -- Breakthrough Entertainment has licensed television broadcast rights for JIMMY TWO-SHOES to Walt Disney Television International Japan. Twenty-six half-hour episodes are scheduled to premiere Fall 2009.
"The international response to JIMMY TWO-SHOES has been very gratifying," said Nat Abraham, Head of Distribution. "The fun and humor in the series continue to spread across all regions. We are delighted to have Disney Channel in Japan as part of the Jimmy family."
What happens when you take an irrepressible, thrill-seeking optimist and plunk him down in Miseryville, the most miserable place on Earth? You get the brand new animated series JIMMY TWO-SHOES! Along with his best friends, Heloise -- part-time genius, full-time soul-crusher -- and Beezy -- lover of adventure, once you get him off the couch -- Jimmy is determined to surf past all obstacles and bring his infectious enthusiasm to the whole town ... including its megalomaniacal chief executive, Lucius Heinous the Seventh. Jimmy's making misery fun again!
Produced by Breakthrough Animation in association with Teletoon (Canada) and Jetix Europe, JIMMY TWO-SHOES has already been licensed to Cartoon Network in Asia and Australia, Jetix US, and Nickelodeon Latin America.
