4Kids Ent. has completed licensing agreements for the animated series Dinosaur King with GMTV in the U.K. and Jetix Netherlands. In addition, the second season of the series has been picked up by Jetix U.K. and is scheduled to launch in late February, Home video distribution rights have been acquired by KSM GMBH for German-speaking Europe.
Based on the internationally successful arcade and collectable card game from Sega, Dinosaur King employs a mix of traditional cel and CG animation to chronicle the adventures of Max, Rex and Zoe (a.k.a. the ‘D Team’) as they race around the world to uncover secrets that bring dinosaurs back to life. They are able to transport themselves anywhere in the world in their quest to find all the dinosaur cards that have been lost by the time-traveling Dr. Z and his bumbling team of bad guys.
In the U.S., Dinosaur King airs Saturday mornings during the TheCW4Kids block. The series’ growing lineup of overseas broadcasters includes RTE in Ireland, Animax in Central and Eastern Europe and MNET in South Africa.
