Snapper Productions has signed a new deal with Proper Distribution for the UK home entertainment rights for its popular pre-school animation, Q Pootle 5.
The partnership sees Proper acquire all 52 episodes of the show, which will be packaged in a series of four DVDs.
Each DVD will contain 13 episodes, alongside exclusive special feature content and branded stickers.
The first DVD will arrive at major retailers and speciality outlets in autumn this year.
In addition, Proper has also secured the UK rights to an exclusive 25 minute Christmas special, currently in production.
“The loveable characters, creative storylines and beautiful visuals of Q Pootle 5 have captured the imaginations of children and parents,” said Drew Hill, Proper Distribution managing director.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for us to represent the DVD rights to one of the most exciting children’s properties in the UK pre-school market right now.”
Ben Butterworth, Snapper Productions, added: “Q Pootle 5 has achieved great success on CBeebies and we know that parents and kids want to view the series anytime and anywhere via DVD.
“We are delighted to be working with Proper Distribution, they have experience, passion and great ideas which will extend the reach of the brand to new and existing audiences across the UK.”
