The Nicktoons Network has rolled out 26 "Domo" shorts in the U.S. through a deal with Big Tent Entertainment.
A new two-minute short is expected to air each week. This year, "Domo" debuted on Nickelodeon's international channels in Europe, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand.
Big Tent Entertainment is currently seeking merchandise deals for "Domo," aimed at tweens, teens and young adults for video games, beach, bedding, bath, home décor, footwear, food and beverage.
The "Domo" character debuted in Japan in the late '90s in more than 400 television spots and appeared on the Internet through fan-made images, Web sites and videos. "Domo's" popularity led to its first-ever licensed product line in Japan featuring plush, toys, fashion and collectibles.
