Geronimo Stilton comes to US and UK audiences for the first time
Atlantyca Entertainment’s popular animated series “Geronimo Stilton” is joining their “Bat Pat” animated series on HappyKids, Future Today’s flagship kids and family streaming platform. This new partnership with Future Today, marks the second deal for the two companies, Atlantyca and Future Today, having secured the streaming rights earlier this year to Atlantyca’s spooky and comical animated adventure series Bat Pat.
