Toonz Entertainment is in the process of acquiring leading Spanish childrens producer-distributor Imira Entertainment, the company behind the production series Lucky Fred and Sandra the Fairytale Detective. Toonz Entertainment, the parent firm of Toon Animation, counted as the oldest and largest animation company in India, has teamed up with studio giants like Disney, Turner Broadcasting, Sony, the BBC, Marvel and Nicktoons.

Imira will continue to operate as a separate entity with its existing management structure, but the two will now work together on production and distribution, Toonz said.
