ABC TV will air the animation which is aimed at five to 11 year olds.

Vic the Viking goes Down Under

Vic the Viking has been commissioned by ABC TV and Network Ten in Australia.

The 78 11-minute episode animation is a co-production between ASE Studios Pty Limited and Studio 100 Animation, in association with Flying Bark Productions.

Network Ten will premiere the series this year and a follow-up broadcast is scheduled for ABC TV.

It also seems that Vic, formerly Vicky the Viking, is now a boy.

A statement read: "Aimed at 5-11 year olds, the action comedy series is currently in production and follows Vic, a little Viking, who has developed a remarkable sense of astuteness in order to solve problems his clan encounters as based on Runer Jonsson’s globally recognised books."

Flying Bark Productions’ MD Jim Ballantine said: "I am thrilled to announce ABC TV has picked up Vic The Viking here in Australia. 

"The series will strongly resonate with local audiences through its combination of comedy and action-adventure mixed with vivid animation detail. The books are extremely popular with the demographic and I am sure children will love our interpretation of Vic The Viking as much as they enjoy Runer Jonsson’s tales."

Vic is a little Viking who sails the high seas with his dad the Viking chief and their lovable crew of oddball explorers.
