With the brand celebrating its 20th anniversary, Turner Broadcasting has picked up the rights to the Mr Bean animated series.

The three-year deal gives the broadcaster exclusive UK rights to air all 26 half hour episodes on its family channel, Boomerang.

The show, which is produced by Tiger Aspect, joins such programmes as Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry and Pink Panther and Pals on the channel.

"Mr Bean is the epitome of good fun family viewing and has a great gender balance appeal, which works perfectly for a channel like Boomerang which is watched equally by boys and girls," said Cecilia Persson, VP acquisitions EMEA at Turner Broadcasting. "We're delighted to welcome the show to Boomerang's roster of animation greats."
