In Taiwan, Good TV has picked up multiple seasons of 9 Story’s preschool hit Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood (80 x 11 minutes), and True Visions has licensed close to 200 half hours of programming, including PEG + CAT (40 x 22 minutes), Almost Naked Animals (52 x 22 minutes), Joe & Jack (13 x 22 minutes), Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs (52 x 22 minutes), Frankenstein’s Cat (15 x 22 minutes) and Turbo Dogs (26 x 22 minutes).

For Korean viewers, Asiana Licensing has scooped up multiple seasons of Arthur, while Daekyo Kids has acquired season three of 3D-animated comedy Erky Perky (26 x 11 minutes). Rounding out the buyers’ list is Singapore Media Corp., which has picked up season one of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.

With more than 1,700 half hours in its content library, 9 Story continues to expand its global distribution of series, most recently selling its animated preschool series Guess How Much I Love You – The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare to broadcasters in Germany, the Middle East, Central Europe and Iceland.
