Breakthrough Ent. has closed broadcast deals for several of its programs, including the children’s series Atomic Betty and The Adventures of Dudley the Dragon. The third season of Betty (26 x 30) has been picked up by Cartoon Network Latin America, and Dudley (65 x 30) has been licensed to APTN in Canada. Breakthrough also says it has found new broadcast homes for some of its factual, drama and documentary properties.
A co-production of Breakthrough Animation, Atomic Cartoons and Teleimages Kids, Atomic Betty employs Flash animation and some CG to chronicle the exploits of an extraordinary little girl from the Canadian town of Moosejaw Heights. To her friends and family, Betty is the sweet and brainy girl next door. But when the galaxy beckons, she sheds her humdrum persona and becomes Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos. Conceived by Atomic Cartoons principals Trevor Bentley, Mauro Casalese, Rob Davies and Olaf Miller, the show debuted on Cartoon Network in the fall of 2004 and now airs in more than 100 countries.
The Adventures of Dudley the Dragon is a public television series that features puppets and costumed characters to chronicle the adventures of a lovable green dragon who awakens from a century-long nap to explore the world with two 10-year-old friends as guides. Each episode uses catchy songs and entertaining storylines to teach lessons about nature.
