TOONMARTY LAUNCHES THIS MONTH ON AMAZON PRIME
Barcelona – Montreal – September 18, 2018 – Animated comedy series ToonMarty (40×11’) is launching this month on Amazon Prime in various territories, including the USA, UK, Ireland, Australia & NZ, and in German speaking territories. It will become available in France and additional French speaking territories next month.
This follows the successful launch of the series on Nickelodeon International, France Télévisions’ France 4 channel, CITV (UK) and Discovery’s K2 channel in Italy.
Produced by Montreal’s Sardine Productions, ToonMarty, was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment for its French and English Teletoon networks and premiered on both in Canada last May (2017).
Christophe Goldberger, GoldBee’s Managing Director: “We are happy to see this great comedy available on Amazon Prime, a growing platform for kids content globally.”
Ghislain Cyr, President of Sardine Productions, and Producer of ToonMarty: “We are delighted by the success of the series. It is always exciting to know that our work touches audiences from around the world”.
In the middle of Toonville, where all cartoons live, sits the Toonmart, where all cartoons hang out. As the Number One (read “only”) employee there, busy body Marty believes his job is to stick his nose in everyone else’s business… and there’s no business Marty likes better than somebody else’s business, except maybe show business! With every bend, bounce, flip and spin, Marty makes a great big cartoony adventure out of everything, and includes everyone in his Marty-Party!
The series was developed jointly with an interactive on-line game “Marty’s Special Delivery” where kids get to serve eccentric Toonville customers with classic Marty flair. As always, Marty’s penchant for exaggeration means that nothing is simple or small. Serving customers is a cartoony and wacky experience! Players get to play with their favourite characters from the TV show and uncover their special talents to create the Marty-est, craziest, wackiest chain reactions.
The property is supported by The Bell Fund, The Canadian Media Fund, the CPTC, The Shaw Rocket Fund and the SODEC.
