CANNES — Germany’s kidvidder EM.TV and Spain’s Planeta 2010, the film and TV subsid of the Planeta Group, have finalized a co-production pact on seven animated series and inked a first-look deal to co-produce additional toon projects.

Other series in the deal are “Flipper & Lopaka II” and “Tabaluga II,” plus the already unveiled “Nick and Perry,” about two alien dogs; “The World of Tosh,” based on a Swedish story; and further episodes of “Pigs Next Door,” featuring a porcine family.

Planeta Junior will handle marketing and licensing rights on the series for Spain and Portugal.
