Pre-school service goes to Europe, Mideast, Africa
LONDON — Turner Broadcasting is rolling out its U.K. preschool kids’ channel Cartoonito as a branded block across Europe, the Middle East and Africa in September, upping its distribution to 112 territories.
Block will bow on either Boomerang or the Cartoon Network, depending on the country. Shows will include toons “Bananas in Pyjamas” and “Jelly Jamm.”
Cartoonito bowed in Blighty in 2007 featuring “Fireman Sam,” “Baby Looney Tunes” and “Care Bears.” — Steve Clarke
