What is Mediatoon Distribution?
Mediatoon Distribution belongs to the group Media Participations, comprising of leading comic, novel and graphic publishing houses (Dargaud, Urban Comics, Kana, Dupuis, Le Seuil, Abrams and La Martinière), animation studios and digital media. Media Participations is one of Europe’s key players in the world of Family entertainment.
Mediatoon Distribution successfully manages and markets iconic shows worldwide. Its expertise has been recognised internationally with awards such as Best Distributor of the Year and Best Export Prizes for shows such as Cedric, SamSam and Trotro.
Thanks to our in-house studios (Belvision, Dargaud Media, Dupuis Audiovisuel, Ellipsanime, Storimages), third party producers and other major anime partners, Mediatoon’s catalogue consists of over 4,000 hours worth of entertainment. This includes iconic series such as Garfield, SamSam, Tintin, Trotro, Code Lyoko and Naruto, all of which continue to cement Mediatoon’s position as one of the leading Kids and Family IP managers and animation distributors in Europe.
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!
Following the success of the first season of Teen Crumpets, the story of a huge, oddball family in an odd house, we are sure that the show's second season will continue the pattern of success.
This season, it is the teens who are the stars of the show! We will join them (Pfff, Caprice, Cassandra, Marylin, Larry, Cordless, and the rest of the crazy bunch) on their exciting new romantic and musical adventures!
