Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong.
eOne has sold broadcast rights for animated comedy series Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong to FTA broadcaster Clan TVE in Spain and Pay-TV network BIGGS in Portugal.
The series was co-developed with Australian production company Sticky Pictures, who also co-produced the series with broadcasters TELETOON Canada and ABC3 Australia.
The show made its international debut at MIPCOM last year and will launch on ABC3 Australia and Teletoon Canada in 2016.
The first series of the show will begin airing in Portugal from fall 2016.
“The deals with TVE and BIGGS demonstrate that the fast, funny humour of Winston Steinburger and Sir Dudley Ding Dong translates to audiences around the world," eOne's Head of International Sales Monica Candiani said.
"We’re delighted that the show has found a home on these channels so that kids in Spain and Portugal can join Winston on his madcap adventures through space.”
The 52 X 11’ animated show for 6-12 year olds follows the hilarious hijinks of thrill-seeking space kid, Winston Steinburger, his feline best friend, Sir Dudley, and an uptight alien, Hampton, as they explore the galaxy together in a homemade space cruiser seeking out fun adventures.
