Garfield and Friends’ Worldwide Rights Acquired by 9 Story


9 Story Media Group has recently acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to all languages and platforms for the iconic 2D animated series Garfield and Friends, which was originally produced by Mendelson/Paws Prod from 1988 to 1995. The deal gives 9 Story exclusive rights to all seven seasons of the show, which consists of 121 x 30 min episodes, and 12 specials as well as two direct to video movies. 9 Story is planning to release a remastered version of the content in order to give fans a chance to see the series in HD.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Garfield and Friends join the growing 9 Story library,” said Natalie Osborne, Chief Strategy Officer for 9 Story Media Group. “Garfield is one of the most beloved and iconic characters of all time, and the classic television series will continue to delight audiences for generations to come.”

“This is the first time we’ve awarded the rights to a single distribution partner who will handle all markets and all platforms. We’re very excited to see how the library performs, particularly given the opportunities in digital,” said Jim Davis. “We are sure the classic TV library is in good hands with 9 Story. “
