GoldBee has licensed ToonMarty, an animated comedy series made by Sardine Productions, to CITV in the U.K.
ToonMarty takes place in Toonville, where all cartoons live. The 40×11-minute show centers on Toonmart employee Marty, who is always sticking his nose in everyone else’s business. It was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment for its French and English TELETOON networks and debuted on both channels in Canada last May.
Christophe Goldberger, GoldBee’s managing director, commented: “We are happy to see ToonMarty expand its presence with such a great partner as CITV. The tone of this outstanding comedy resonates with kids globally, combining hilarious slapstick elements with witty dialogues.”
Darren Nartey, ITV’s program acquisitions executive, noted: “We are delighted to be the home of ToonMarty in the U.K. It is a great comedy with fantastic animation, which will appeal to CITV’s core audience.”
Ghislain Cyr, president and producer at Sardine Productions, added: “We are delighted to count CITV amongst our partners. This is so rewarding for all of us at Sardine to know that kids from the U.K. and all around the world will be watching our series and hopefully have a good laugh!”
