Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific Acquires Freaktown Broadcasting Rights

Cartoon Network Asia-Pacific has purchased the broadcasting rights for a new animated show called Freaktown. Freaktown is the first series to be wholly created and produced by Portfolio Entertainment’s new animation studio. The series was commissioned by Teletoon in Canada and will start to air in 2016. Freaktown is an animated kids show aimed at the 6 to 11 year old demographic which follows the adventures of skeleton Ben Bones and his friends as they protect their town from Princess Boo Boo of Sweetlandia. The series will premiere on Cartoon Network feeds in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand. In Europe, Turner France has brought the rights and it will air on Boing which also airs in other French speaking European and African territories. Initially, there will be 52 segments that are 11 minutes long each.

Portfolio Entertainment CEO and co-founder Joy Rosen made this statement about the broadcasting rights deal:

“While still in production, Freaktown has grabbed the attention of buyers globally and we are thrilled to land international deals with world-renowned broadcasters right out of the gate. This series is crammed with laugh-out-loud moments and unpredictable twists that will perfectly complement the highly-entertaining programming available on these major kids’ networks”

Teletoon: Uncle Grandpa New Episodes In July

Teletoon: Uncle Grandpa New Episodes In July

Teletoon Canada will continue to air new episodes of Uncle Grandpa throughout July on Mondays at 6pm. This means more new adventures of a man that’s everyone’s uncle and grandpa, a talking dinosaur, an egotistical slice of pizza, a talking belly bag and a realistic flying tiger who live in a RV motor home. The main premise of the show usually involves solving children’s problems or other random stuff that has little to do with anything. The show is a surreal action-adventure comedy that relies extensively on visual gags and catchphrases. The show premiered on Teletoon Canada on 1st June.
