Disney Junior Europe, Middle East, Africa & Australia/New Zealand has picked up Sixteen South's Claude.

The series has just gone into production and is due to air in 2017.

Based on the best-selling series of books by Alex T. Smith, Claude follows the humorous adventures of a little beret-clad dog, Claude, and his faithful sidekick Sir Bobblysock. 

Published by the Hachette Children’s Group, the books sell in 16 languages across five continents.

Aimed at children at the upper end of the pre-school age range, the new series is adapted for television by Sixteen South in a distinctive 2D hand-drawn style, bringing to life the visual style of the original books.

“We fell in love with Claude when we first saw the books and we’re thrilled that Disney have fallen in love with him too," said Sixteen South’s creative director, Colin Williams.

"We’re delighted that our little four-legged hero will be popping up on Disney Junior all across the world and we know that his fun stories and silly humour will appeal to children everywhere.”
