Toonz Entertainment, the content distribution division of global kids and family entertainment major Toonz Media Group, has closed strategic partnerships with leaders in the industry to bring exciting animation series to the market ahead of MIPCOM.
Toonz Entertainment has acquired exclusive distribution rights for ‘Everything’s Rosie’ from UK-based V&S Entertainment Ltd. The program includes 104 episodes of 11 minutes each for LATAM, IBERIA, US, and Canada. Toonz will now have ‘Everything’s Rosie’ distribution rights for TV, Video-On-Demand, Internet and All Videogram rights.
Everything’s Rosie is a top-rated HD CGI animation for preschool children, promoting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical educational values that encourage learning through play. Aimed at girls and boys aged 3-6 years, the series follows the adventures of little girl Rosie and her friends–Will, Holly, Big Bear, Oakley, the ancient Oak Tree and Raggles, the blue rabbit.
Vickie Corner, CEO at V&S Entertainment and Creator of Everything’s Rosie, comments: “We’re very proud to be collaborating with Toonz Media on Everything’s Rosie. Kids love consuming large amounts of content, but parents look for quality, too, something that will interest and intrigue their little ones, inspiring them to be good role models and promoting kindness and friendship. Everything’s Rosie embodies these qualities offering preschool children the chance to enjoy wholesome age-appropriate stories while learning important life skills. We’re excited for Toonz to bring Rosie to a wider multi-language audience, in addition to the 170 territories where the show already has a footprint.”
Toonz Entertainment now also has exclusive distribution rights for ‘Bubble Bath Bay’ from Australia-based Pop Family Entertainment Pty Ltd for a worldwide audience, excluding only Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. The brand-new 3D animated preschool series having 52 episodes of 11 minutes duration, features best friends Sydney the Sailboat and Zip the Water Taxi.

By this agreement, Toonz Entertainment will get exclusive rights to distribute the program to the public through TV, Video-On-Demand platforms, Theatrical and airline rights.
