Super 4, the animated TV series inspired by the children's toy Playmobil, has been snapped up by broadcasters across Europe and Asia.

The children's show, produced by Method Animation and morgen studios, and commissioned by France Télévisions, has been recently acquired by Thai TV3 and Malaysia's NTV7, along with Spain's Canal Panda and VRT, which operates in Flemish-speaking Belgium.

Aimed at children aged between five and nine, the comedy adventure series features four key characters: Alex the Knight, Ruby the Pirate, Agent Gene, and Twinkle the Fairy. Together, they travel through five extraordinary islands: Technopolis, Kingsland, Enchanted Island, Gunpowder Island and a Lost World.

"The Playmobil brand is recognised throughout the world so we are pleased to represent a series that kids and parents will immediately identify with," said Guillaume Soutter of Super 4's global distributor PGS Entertainment.

"The initial episodes delivered by Method and morgen are stunning and broadcasters are responding with great enthusiasm."

The series, which comprises 52 episodes of 11 minutes, has already been acquired by Neox Kidz (Artresmedia) in Spain; TV3 in Catalonia; Canal Panda in Portugal; RTBF in Belgium; RTS in Switzerland; RTL téléKids in Netherlands & Luxembourg; MTV3 in Finland; Canal+ in Poland; Noga in Israel; Workpoint in Thailand; Radio-Canada in Canada; CiTV in the UK; and Cartoon Network in Italy and Latin America.
