The free-to-air channel acquired the series, which launched on Nickelodeon late last year, from Viacom International Media Networks.

TNT will launch the 26-episode reboot of the classic cartoon series on March 4 and strip it through the week in a morning slot.

VIMN also said it has shopped the show to another free-to-air broadcaster, Channel Four in New Zealand.
