The new agreement marks an expansion of the property with Turner Broadcasting into the U.S., and extends the show’s reach beyond Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Pan-Asia on Turner platforms.
The series is based on the Meg Toys Puppy in My Pocket brand, and is a co-production between Mondo TV, Giochi Preziosi and Meg Toys. Licensing Works! is managing the North American licensing and promotions for the series.
Jakks Pacific will distribute the toy line based on the TV series in North America. The line will feature collectible figures, accessories, play sets and plush, which will ship to retailers in the spring.
"We are very pleased with the expansion of our relationship with Cartoon Network into the United States and for 'Puppy In My Pocket: Adventures in Pocketville' to air on Boomerang," says Joe Morrison, chief executive officer of Meg. "The addition of the powerful reach of Turner Broadcasting in the US will surely make the series a children’s broadcasting success worldwide."
