Disney US airing season two of Media I.M.’s Sunny Bunnies

Media I.M. Incorporated, the London-based content distribution company that specializes in the premium animation and family entertainment, has sold the second season of Sunny Bunnies to Disney US — the second landmark deal in two months for the hit Belarus pre-school animation, which is now on air in more than 160 territories.

Season two of Sunny Bunnies is currently airing in the US and CEEMA (Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa). In the US, Digital Light Studio’s non-dialogue comedy for three- to six-year-olds airs on Disney Junior and Disney Channel and in the CEEMA region, it will be available on the Disney Channel feed.

In further Sunny Bunnies news, Sky Kids has picked up the rights to season two for the Sky Kids app in the UK and Ireland. In Scandinavia, MTG-owned Nordic streaming service Viaplay has acquired seasons one and two which launched earlier this month in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

The FTA rights for both seasons have also been picked up by MBC Group the largest and leading private multimedia company in the Middle East and North Africa region which will launch Sunny Bunnies on its children’s edutainment channel “MBC3” from 2019. Media I.M. has also extended the rights deal with Brazilian kid’s app (Play Kids) for the first season of Sunny Bunnies to Latin America, North America and Europe where previously the deal covered only Brazil. ETV in Estonia has entered into a non- exclusive FreeTV deal, where they will roll out on the kids’ block of public-broadcaster ETV2 from September.

Media I.M. co-founder Maria Ufland said: “Sunny Bunnies has had an amazing journey since 2016 when we have first launched it internationally. Disney’s belief and support for the series has been unwavering and is a huge endorsement to the brand. We are extremely excited that the show will soon be available to even broader kid’s audiences in the Middle East, Brazil and Estonia, which is a huge credit to the international appeal of this show and proves that it is developing to become a truly global brand.”

The Sunny Bunnies are five beaming balls that can appear anywhere there is a source of light, from sunshine to moonlight. In each episode, the cheeky creatures bring their fun and games to a different location — a circus, a sports stadium, a park — embarking on mischievous adventures and spreading laughter and happiness. And at the end of every episode, the fun continues with a collection of bloopers.
