The MoonScoop Group's Taffy Ent. has secured deals for two of its newest animated TV series on key broadcasters across Spain. Cartoon Network Spain has picked up all three seasons of TITEUF and TV Catalunya also snapped up broadcast rights to the new preschool series AVA RIKO TEO.
Curious, mischievous, outspoken and impulsive, TITEUF (250x7), based on the popular French comic book series, is every kid's hero, relentlessly seeking answers to the questions all kids are concerned by. Now in its third season, the animated comedy series garnered the #1 market share rating on France 3 in 2008.
Based on the famous works of French author and artist Mila Boutan, the preschool-oriented AVA RIKO TEO (65x7) is a show seemingly created in front of the viewer's eyes using a colorful assembling of all kinds of paper cutouts, animated by two unseen children's creative play.
The show is designed to engage children to take action and be inspired creatively, making their own creations without inhibition. Now in its first season on France 5, the series currently holds the #1 spot in market share among the Kids 2-8 demographic on the channel.
