The hit Chinese cartoon series "Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf", is to be broadcast on Disney channels in 46 countries and regions in the Asia Pacific region, China News Service reports.
As part of the latest agreement between China's Creative Power Entertaining Corporation (CPE) and Disney affiliate Buena Vista International (BVI), Disney has been granted the right to air another 100 episodes (episodes 201-300) of the cartoon for the next three years starting from this March.
The new episodes will be shown in Asia Pacific countries including South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
It will be translated into more than 20 different languages, with four different dialects in India alone.
This marks the second instance of cooperation between the two companies. The two sides singed their first agreement in 2010 whereby CPE granted a license to BVI to broadcast 100 episodes of "Joys of Seasons" during 2011.
"Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf" is China's most popular animation series in decades. It stars a quick-witted goat named "Pleasant" and a wolf couple - "Grey Wolf" and "Red Wolf."
The cartoon became enormously popular with Chinese school children after its debut in 2005.
