John Hopewell Chief International Correspondent ANNECY, France — Banijay Kids & Family, behind hit “Totally Spies!” and “Mr Bean: The Animated Series,” has unveiled first deals on “Froggie,” crowned best TV pilot at early June’s Cartoons on the Bay Pulcinella Awards.

In deals which suggest one way much Annecy-announced business will go, Spanish pubcaster RTVE and top French kids channel Gulli, have acquired rights to Spain and France respectively.

Both are among the biggest and most established players in Western Europe’s children’s entertainment. The deals come as players large and small seek to sever a dependence on streaming platform buys in favour of tried-and-tested traditional outlets such as state-backed operators and big commercial players.

Gulli, for example, forms part of France’s M6 Group. The buys rep first deals unveiled on “Froggie,” produced by Paris-based studio Monello Productions, part of Banijay Kids & Family), and Barcelona’s Pikkukala and presented to success at last September’s Cartoon Forum.
