Netflix hands Puss in Boots toon debut

Netflix Puss in BootsNetflix will premiere the latest of its DreamWorks Animation original toon series, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, on January 16.

The series, based on the character introduced in the Shrek movie franchise, will comprise 22 five-minute episodes, with the first five launching this month.

Netflix subs in the US, Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, Nordic region, Benelux and France will be able to access episodes. New episodes will then debut throughout the year.

This is the latest example of Netflix deviating from its initial originals launch strategy that released entire series at once to allow for ‘binge-viewing’.

Netflix and DWA entered into a long-term content partnership in 2013, with series such as All Hail King Julien, which spun out of feature film Madagascar, and a reboot of VeggieTales.
