Starting this May, Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, an international producer and distributor of children’s animated and live-action content, in a pact with Discovery Kids has decided to bring 26 hilarious episodes of its hit animated series The ZhuZhus to kids and families throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Under the new agreement, The ZhuZhus will soon be entertaining young viewers in Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

In addition, the company has completed a broadcast extension deal with Discovery Kids for Backyardigans ensuring that the CGI-animated series’ 80 episodes remain on-air in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We are thrilled to work with a dynamic and world-class broadcast partner like Discovery Kids,” said Nelvana, president, Scott Dyer.

The ZhuZhus is based on the hugely-popular ZhuZhu pets toy line from St. Louis, Mo-based Cepia, the mastermind behind the irresistible and always-entertaining lifelike robotic hamsters that became a phenomenon when they were first introduced.

 The ZhuZhus will also begin airing in Caribbean nations like Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, Netherland Antilles, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the US Virgin Islands this spring.
