Nets awake for 1001 Nights

Broadcasters in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia have come onboard a new Arabian nights-themed toon from Vancouver-based Big Bad Boo Studios.

Canada's Teletoon and CBC, Al Jazeera Children's Channel and Austria's ORF are onboard, along with others including MTV3 (Finland), RTP (Portugal), Hop! (Israel), eVision (UAE), Minika TV (Turkey), Astra (Malaysia) and TopTV (Taiwan).
