Nelvana and Turner team to bring cute and colourful TV series to UK, France and Nordics

Nelvana has inked a broadcast deal with Turner to bring the delightful adventures of The ZhuZhus to viewers across Europe, including the UK.

The long-term broadcast deal will see The ZhuZhus air across Turner’s Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Boing, and Cartoonito in the UK, France, and Nordics. 

Episodes began rolling out in the UK and France this month, with another set of new episodes slated for November. The series will debut in the Nordic regions beginning in October.

“The fur-raising adventures of The ZhuZhus has tickled the funny bone of viewers all around the world,” said Scott Dyer, President, Nelvana. “We’re very excited to be adding to our broadcast schedule with exemplary partners that will bring the laugh-out-loud show to viewers throughout the region.” 

Additionally, Nelvana has signed six new licensing agents for the furry animated series around the world. Partners and territories include:  Discovery Italia in Italy, License Connection in Benelux, Licensing Dynamics International in Israel, Megalicense in Russia and CIS territories, Popcorn Brand Activity in Portugal, and 20too Licensing in the Middle East. 

The ZhuZhus is based on the popular ZhuZhu Pets toy line from Cepia, LLC, the mastermind behind the irresistible and always-entertaining lifelike robotic hamsters that became a phenomenon when they were first introduced.
