International distributor Portfolio Entertainment has secured a hearty batch of sales for the acclaimed animated preschool series The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! with new and existing partners across the globe.
New broadcast partners Ultra Kids (ex-Yugoslavia) and Sony Pictures Television Networks (UK & Africa) picked up the first two seasons — Sony also opted for the four one-hour The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! Movies on Camping; Space; Halloween; and Christmas.
The movies were also picked up by MENA broadcasters E-Junior and Discovery Kids, which further added The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! season 3 (20 x 30 min.) to its lineup. Elsewhere, MiniMini+ in Poland has snagged season 3, and Irish pubcaster TG4 has acquired season 1 plus the Christmas special.
And on the SVOD front, MBC’s Gobo.net has snapped up season 2 for the Middle East, and Taiwan’s Horng En Culture will be bringing all four movies to both DVD and SVOD release.
“In an era where content is king, it so great to see digital networks embracing The Cat in the Hat as much as our linear partners,” said Jonathan Abraham, Portfolio’s director of International Sales and Acquisitions.
