Tokyo-based Fine Films Inc. has signed a deal to distribute the first two seasons of popular British cartoon, Olly the Little White Van, reported on 2 December.

Encapsulating storytelling, music and dance, as well as universal, wholesome values in each five-minute episode, the high-rating preschool animation will be available on DVD in Japanese from early 2015.

London-based creator Henry Becket said new and recent deals bring the total markets where Olly is aired to almost 50 globally, with a potential children’s audience numbering in the hundreds of millions.
