9 Story Licenses 4 Key Properties to Super RTL

9 Story Entertainment sells over 70 hours of programming, including Numb Chucks and season 2 of Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood, to Super RTL.

9 Story Entertainment announced that it has signed licenses with Super RTL for 4 of its key properties:  the animated comedy Numb Chucks (52 x 11’), the preschool series Peg + Cat (40 x 12’), season two of Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood  (50 x 11’) and season 3 of Wild Kratts (26 x 22’). The combined deal brings over 70 half hours of new programming to the German broadcaster.

Super RTL also airs all three seasons of 9 Story’s animated series Almost Naked Animals (52 x 22’), the first seasons of Camp Lakebottom (26 x 22’) and Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood (80 x 11’) and the first two seasons of Wild Kratts™ (66 x 22’).

“We are so pleased to partner with Super RTL on these programs,” said Natalie Osborne, Managing Director, 9 Story Entertainment. “Super RTL has been an incredible home for several 9 Story shows and we can’t wait to introduce Numb Chucks and Peg + Cat to its loyal audience.”

Carsten Göttel, Program Director at SUPER RTL said, “We are more than happy to not only add new seasons of already well-known and popular series like Wild Kratts and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood to our schedule but also introduce new series like Peg + Cat and Numb Chucks. We are sure that Pet + Cat with its fun and adorable characters will be embraced by preschool kids and their parents whereas the well-meaning kung fu-crazed characters from Numb Chucks will crack kids up in the afternoon.”

Numb Chucks is an animated comedy about two half-witted woodchuck vigilantes, Dilweed and Fungus, who use their non-existent kung-fu skills to protect the lives of all the citizens in Ding-a-ling Springs, whether they need it or not.

Peg + Cat is an animated preschool series that follows an adorable spirited little girl, Peg, and her sidekick, Cat, as they encounter unexpected problems that require fun and creative solutions. In order to solve the problems, Peg and her Cat must add, subtract and apply basic arithmetic.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood is a delightful animated preschool series featuring Daniel, a shy but brave 4-year-old tiger, who with the help of his neighbors, family, and friends has fun and learns key skills necessary for school and for life.

In Wild Kratts, the Kratt brothers leap into animated action in a half-hour comedy adventure.  In each episode, Chris and Martin Kratt travel to a different corner of the world to meet amazing new animals. It’s laugh-out-loud comedy, as they activate their Creature Power Suits to rescue their animal friends.
