In 2014 Mediatoon incorporated Moonscoop's catalogue, enriching its already impressive catalogue with such hit shows as THE FANTASTIC FOUR, TOOTUFF, SAMSAM and CODE LYOKO. These additions help to cement Mediatoon’s position as one of the leading animation distributors and IP managers in Europe.
After a great year across the board Trotro put the icing on the cake by winning the 13th edition of the TVFI Export Prize rewarding the programs most sold abroad after its stunning performance both at home and internationally. Although competing with equally iconic programmes – Les Chroniques de Zorro (Cyber Group) et Sonic Boom (Lagardère) Trotro came out on top to clinch the gold and cement itself as a frontrunner in children’s television.
Accompanied by Bénédicte Guettier the celebrated author of the Trotro book series, Jérôme Alby, Managing Director at Mediatoon Distribution, has declared “this award is a testimony to the ability of Francophone productions to succeed in international markets and above all to cement themselves as such for the long run.”
We are so proud to have Trotro as part of the Mediatoon family and are looking forward to what the future holds for our favorite little donkey!
