CITV acquires animated comedy ToonMarty from Goldbee


UK kids net CITV has acquired Sardine Productions’ animated comedy ToonMarty from Barcelona-based distributor GoldBee.

The slapstick series, set in Toonvile, follows an employee of Toonmart, the town’s biggest busybody.

The 40 x 11-minute comedy series is produced by the Montreal-based studio Chop Chop Ninja Challenge, Leon. It was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment for its French and English Teletoon feeds where it premiered last May.

Earlier this year, ToonMarty was picked up by Nickelodeon International for its global channels and digital platforms excluding North America, China and Japan.
