'Skunk Fu!' Licenced To Cartoon Network Europe

Skunk Fu!, the IFB funded animated comedy action series, has been licensed by Cake Distribution to the Cartoon Network Europe.
Produced by Irish animation house Cartoon Saloon with Telegael and Cake Entertainment, for Ireland's TG4 and Germany's Super RTL, will now air across all of Cartoon Network's EMEA channels including their channels in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa. It's a huge achievement as the animation will now air on every continent world wide.
The series, created by Aidan Harte for kids aged six to 12, follows Skunk, a western kid learning kung fu from a wise old Panda in China in order to battle with the evil Dragon and his army of ninja monkeys.
The agreement follows previous carriage deals with European broadcasters the BBC, Super RTL, Canal J, France 5, RTBF, SVT, NRK, S4C, TG4 and RaiSat. According to Cake, the new deal brings Skunk Fu! to parts of Europe where it had not yet found a foothold.
Edward Galton, Managing Director of Cake Distribution, Cake Entertainment's distribution arm, said the size of Skunk's territory now puts the property in a good position to break out of TV and move on to other platforms.
