Taffy Entertainment has revealed a number of new Eastern European sales, completed after last month's DISCOP market in Budapest.

Lithuania's LNK has obtained free TV rights to the animated shows Dr Dog and The Fantastic Four; Pet Alien has been picked up by Ukraine free TV broadcaster 1+1; Urania has picked up the home video rights to Dive Olly Dive (pictured) in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia; while new CGI animated series Casper's Scare School has been snapped up for home video by SDT in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia territories.

In addition, Croatian distributor Blitz Films has obtained the free TV, pay TV and home video rights to Dive Olly Dive and SamSam for ex-Yugoslavian territories.

"The Eastern European markets are continuing to grow and we're happy to be meeting their ever growing demand for quality children's programming," commented Marie Conge, senior VP of international sales at Taffy.

"All of these new sales are for brands that have already been sucessful in other territories, so we are confident this trend will continue for our newest partners."

This year has seen Taffy sign several new deals and debut a number of shows ? all to critical acclaim. However, the firm?s president of worldwide consumer products and marketing, Cynthia Money, believes its biggest achievement to be the successful integration of the European and US-based consumer products teams into a stronger global organisation. And she has big plans going forward, too.
