Children’s entertainment powerhouse Cookie Jar Entertainment has struck a long-term deal with Netflix to stream selected titles from its libraries to the company’s customers in the United States and Canada.
In the United States, almost 200 half-hours from the series Busytown, Johnny Test, Metajets and Strawberry Shortcake are available for instant viewing.
