Jetpack Distribution has acquired the international rights for new seasons of Beano Studios’ Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed! and Bumpybox’s My Petsaurus.

The second season of Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed! is comprised of 52 11-minute episodes and stars the hero Dennis, voiced by Freddie Fox, and his group of fearless friends. The first season has been sold to 25 countries and airs on free-to-air public service broadcasters such as Super RTL in Germany, Rai in Italy and France Télévisions.

My Petsaurus is a blended live-action and animation show produced by the U.K. indie Bumpybox and commissioned by CBeebies. Season three comprises 20 2-minute episodes and will feature brand-new adventures for Chloe and her troublesome pet dinosaur Topsy, as they encounter all the trials and tribulations that come with looking after your first pet. My Petsaurus has been sold to broadcasters across Northern Europe, including CBeebies (U.K.), NRK (Norway), NPO (Netherlands) and DR (Denmark).

Jetpack’s CEO, Dominic Gardiner, says: “We’re so excited to have more series of these popular and much-loved shows. We look forward to finding more homes for TV’s notorious duo Dennis and Gnasher and for Chloe and her pet dinosaur. Both shows have resonated strongly with young audiences and we’re delighted to be bringing them to MIPJunior in October.”
