‘Q Pootle 5’ Gets Pre-MIP Sales

ZDF Enterprises and its broadcast partner ABC Australia have picked up the new preschool series “Q Pootle 5” (52 x 11) from Snapper Productions.

While the series is set to officially launch at MIPCOM, ABC will begin broadcasting the show on Monday, following in the footsteps of U.K. broadcaster CBeebies, which has also launched the series. The brand is represented for licensing in the U.K. by Rocket Licensing.

Based on the books by Nick Butterworth, “Q Pootle 5” follows the alien Q Pootle 5 and his friends as they tackle the everyday problems of life on their home planet of Okidoki.
