30 Apr 2019 : Nathan Griffin
'The Henry Met...?'
Irish distribution company Monster Entertainment has secured deals with a host of broadcasters and SVOD companies for the recently completed third season of hit series, ‘The Day Henry Met…?’

Internationally, the new season is airing on Pay TV on Nickelodeon in 178 countries and is about to launch on the US Pay TV Service, Kids Central. The new season has also been picked up by Free TV broadcasters including ABC Australia, TV3 Catalunya in Spain, RAI Italy, TVP in Poland, TVO and TFO in Canada and Eesti Estonia

Digital rights have been picked up by Jetsen Huashi in China. Svensk in Scandinavia, Azoomee in the UK and TFOU Max in France.

Speaking about the news, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Chairman of Monster Entertainment told IFTN:

"We are delighted with the international success of what must be becoming one of the most successful Irish animation series of all time, airing in 178 countries and with 4 seasons being produced in just over 4 years”

The series (26 x 5’), which is currently embarking on its fourth season, premiered on RTE in Ireland and then on Nick Jr. in 178 countries prior to moving to Free TV and SVOD.

‘The Day Henry Met…?’ won the Pulcinella Award for Best European Work at Cartoons on the Bay in 2015. In March 2017, the series also won Best Animation at the Irish Film and Television Awards and is produced by Wiggleywoo in Ireland.

The series continues to enjoy terrific ratings. For example, on ABC Australia, ‘The Day Henry Met…?’ reaches 203K viewers with 53% of viewers ages 0-4. In Italy, the show is ranked 5th among the most viewed programmes on free children’s channels in the 13:00-18:00 time slot, with a 13.32% share of viewers aged 4-7. It is the no.1 preschool series in Australia and, following the launch of its third season on Nick Jr Too in the UK, the series has topped the ratings there as well.

Season 4 of the series is currently in production and due for completion in October 2019.
