TV-Loonland has sold an animated series and a 3D holiday special to Jetix Germany (formerly Fox Kids). The pay-TV broadcaster picked up seasons two and three of the hit show, Three Friends and Jerry, as well as Donner, a half-hour Christmas pic that debuted in 2001. The sales follow Jetix Germanys recent acquisition of the TV-Loonland series, The Cramp Twins.
Created by Mangus Carlsson, Three Friends and Jerry is a co-production between TV-Loonland and Swedish company Happy Life Animation, a subsidiary of Svensk Filmindustri. It centers on 10-year-old friends Frank, Thomas and Eric as new kid Jerry cooks up crazy ideas in desperate attempts to be accepted into their group. The series aired from 1998 to 1999 in the U.S. on Fox Family and in the U.K. on Nickelodeon, and is now seen in more than 40 countries.
Donner premiered on ABC Family three years ago. Created by Kevin Munroe and animated by Rainbow Animation Studios, the special and follows the story of unhappy reindeer Donner, who is nothing like the other reindeer in Santas stable. The sleigh puller must overcome a severe identity crisis in order to get on with his Christmas duties.
TV-Loonland has development teams and production facilities in continental Europe, Great Britain and the U.S., as well as a comprehensive rights catalogue and a worldwide operating distribution team.
