Entertainment Rights has said it is "delighted" by the interest from broadcast partners in its properties at MIPTV earlier this month.

New BBC commission Postman Pat - Special Delivery Service (SDS) was formally introduced to the international TV community for first time at the market. Sales were agreed with key broadcast partners in Denmark, Sweden, Australia, pan-regionally in the Middle East and Iceland.

A number of additional deals will be revealed soon.

Toopy and Binoo also received a good response, being sold into Korea and a leading commercial free TV channel in the Middle East amongst others.

They join Cartoon Network (Latin America), Rai Sat (Italy), Tiji (France), RTP (Portugal) and Kids Central (Singapore). In the US, PBS acts as the brand's exclusive online and video distribution partner.

The newly acquired Shelldon (pictured) elicited good interest from broadcasters worldwide, including in the UK, France and multiple Scandinavian and Asian territories, where deals are expected to be signed and announced in a few weeks.

The animated George of the Jungle series, meanwhile, has been sold to Norway, Russia, Scandinavia, Belgium, Finland, Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark and Iceland. These broadcasters join France 3 and France 5, as well as Super RTL in Germany.

Finally, Casper's Scare School, which is currently in production for TF1 in France and for Cartoon Network Europe also generated positive chatter. It has been sold in the Netherlands (Jetix), Denmark (DR.TV), Finland (MYV 3), Norway (NRK) and the Middle East (Cartoon Network).
