WaybulooChinese children’s channel CCTV-14 has acquired CBeebies live-action/puppet hybrid Waybuloo.

The deal hands the state-owned CCTV 150 19-minute episodes dubbed in Mandarin. CCTV-14 will begin rolling them out in March.

Though Zodiak Kids, the children’s programming arm of Zodiak Media, owns the show, BBC Worldwide sells it in China and closed the deal.
