Raggs
 
The adorable canines are practicing their Spanish to make their debut on Telemundo; a division of NBCUniversal. Raggs is disembarking on the broadcast network in the US with 120 new episodes in Spanish that combine musical segments with live action stories, cartoons and interviews with real kids to create a high energy, fun-filled half hour for both parents and children.

The Raggs series airs on public television stations in the US and in countries such as Australia, Ireland and Israel (Hebrew version). While Spanish versions of songs such as "Raggs Rocks" have become popular iTunes downloads, this is Raggs' first venture into Spanish television.

Toni Steedman, President of Blue Socks Media LLC and the owners of the Raggs series, said: "Raggs has always embodied the strong family values reflected in the Spanish culture and we're delighted to introduce Raggs to our Spanish-language friends."

Raggs preschool series stars Raggs, a music-loving, tail-wagging pup, and his four musical friends, Trilby, Pido, B. Max and Razzles, who play rock n' roll music together as The Raggs Band and explore adventures in their own cool clubhouse. They are supported by their wisecracking pet cat, Dumpster, who hosts his own talk show within each episode. The Raggs Band also performs two concert songs and one music video of their hit songs in each episode.

Raggs is represented for distribution in Latin America by Bender Media Services. The Telemundo contract was brokered by Susan Bender of Bender Media Services and Jaime Escandon of Renata Productions.
