DHX Media has signed a trio of deals to bring Rastamouse to new international territories.

In Australia, ABC TV has acquired broadcast rights with ABC Commercial signing up home video rights to all 52x11’ episodes of the CBeebies-commissioned stop-motion animated series.

The show is produced by Three Stones Media with Dinamo Productions and Little Roots.

In further deals, Canal+ (MiniMini) has acquired TV rights in Poland and HOP has picked up all available episodes for Israel following the launch of the series at MIPCOM.

DHX Media represents worldwide television rights (excluding UK) and worldwide licensing and merchandising rights to the property which will launch in the UK on CBeebies in the first quarter of 2011.

Josh Scherba, SVP distribution at DHX Media said: “Rastamouse is a stand out show with strong international potential in both broadcast and consumer products.

"We’re focused on taking the property into new markets and building on the exceptional response we had from international buyers to the property at MIPCOM.”

Greg Boardman, executive producer at The Rastamouse Company added: “The sales Rastamouse has achieved to these international territories are fantastic.

"It’s clear there is a space in the kids market for a show like Rastamouse – which has heart, humour and fun at its very core. We look forward to building the brand with our partner DHX as the programme is picked up worldwide.”
