GMTV has snapped up the series for its pre-school children's strand Wakey Wakey, which also shows Taffy's Fantastic Four and Tootuff. In Spain, TVE has picked up the show for both terrestrial and digital kids channel Clan.

Further deals include Cartoon Network Latin America, MTV3 in Finland, Cineplex Thailand and TPI in Indonesia. It has also been picked up by local distributors in Poland, South Africa and English-speaking African territories.

In Europe, Dive Olly Dive airs on France 5 and Disney 5, KI.KA in Germany and Scandinavian public broadcast channels SVT, DR and NRK.

"The pre-school market is very competitive and Dive Olly Dive clearly stands out from the pack, with significant broadcaster deals in all major territories," said Lionel Marty, president of worldwide distribution for Taffy Entertainment.

"Our recent deals for the program in Asia, followed by these sales to top broadcasters across Europe, Asia and in Latin America are a testament to the show's wide appeal."
