Nickelodeon has acquired the Japanese stop-motion kids property Domo for broadcast on its international channels. The agreement with New York-based marketing agency Big Tent Ent. will see Nickelodeon premiere the 26 Domo shorts on its networks in Europe, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand in 2007. Earlier this year Nickelodeon, signed on to develop the property with The Domo Production Committee, an affiliate of Japanese television station NHK. At that time, it was announced that the series would air on Nicktoons in the U.S.

Produced by Media International Corporation (MICO), the two-minute animated Domo installments are aimed at the tween demographic and will be available in 17 languages on the various Nick outlets. The title character is a fuzzy, brown cave-dweller who became a cultural icon with his first appearance as the mascot of in 1998. Domo enjoys kicking back with tea, watching TV and sinking his sharp teeth into seasoned beef with potatoes. He shares his underground habitat with a wise, elderly rabbit named Usajii, who has to put up with Domo’s antics, including his tendency to break wind when he gets nervous or upset.

Terrestrial rights to the series remain available in many territories. Distributor Joan Lambur of Lambur & Associates is currently at MIPCOM in Cannes exploring additional broadcast arrangements while MICO is handles sales in the Asian territories.
