Bubble Guppies
Nick Jr's animated musical preschool series Bubble Guppies has found new broadcast homes in Europe, Asia and North and South America.

The 3D CGI series, which launched on Nick Jr in the US last year and has also been broadcast in the UK, Italy and Australia, has gone to Swiss channel TSR, which has picked up season one.

Canadian children's channel Yoopa has bought season two, while in South America, Nicaragua’s Telenica (S1), Uruguay’s TeleDoce (S1-2) and Costa Rica's Teletica (S1) have all acquired the programme from distributor Viacom International Media Networks.

In Asia, Korea’s EBS and Home Choice have both bought season one, while PBS Thai has taken both seasons via local broker POD Worldwide.

The magazine-style series is set in an underwater classroom, with each episode focusing on one theme through song, dance, humour, games and adventures.
