Turner Broadcasting has acquired Lupus Films’ new animated pre-school series Toot the Tiny Tugboat.

From the award-winning creators of The Snowman and The Snowdog, the series will air on Cartoonito early next year.

The series follows the adventures of Toot as he embarks on his first year of service, leading big boats in to the Harbour and then back out to sea, drag barges inland along canals, rescue ships in distress, fight fires and more.

Sean Gorman, director, Kids Channels, UK and Ireland, Turner Broadcasting, said: “We are delighted to have picked up the pay TV rights of the bright and breezy series and think that Toot the Tiny Tugboat has a big future ahead of him on Cartoonito.”

Toot the Tiny Tugboat is a Toot Enterprises Production in association with Lupus Films, Cloth Cat Animation and Boom Kids.
