The Viacom kids net will put the show out across its international kids nets and has global rights, with the exceptions of North America, China and Japan.

“We are thrilled to see ToonMarty launch on an international platform,” Goldberger said.

“Nickelodeon is a great home for this groundbreaking comedy, as it combines hilarious slapstick elements and witty dialogue, and therefore reaches a wide audience.”

The slapstick Flash-animated comedy follows Marty, who runs the Toonmart. It is aimed at 6-to-10s.
