Saban Brands' new animated preschool series, Julius Jr, has been licensed to French broadcaster TF1 after a deal was negotiated by the series' exclusive international distributor MarVista Entertainment.

The 26 half-hour episodes of the series will make their worldwide debut this fall on Nick Jr in the US and commence broadcasting on TF1 shortly thereafter.

In addition to the broadcast distribution deal, TF1 Licences will also serve as the official licensing and merchandising agent for Julius Jr in France.

The series, produced by Saban Brands and Brain Power Studio, stars Julius Jr, the preschool version of the Paul Frank character, Julius. Julius Jr has a penchant for invention as well as a dream, a team and a scheme to make all his wildest imaginings come true.

Every episode follows Julius Jr and his playful friends who use their imagination and inventive nature to help each other overcome challenges.
