Cartoon Network Latin America has acquired 39 hours of comedy toons from Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, including new episodes of Detentionaire and Scaredy Squirrel.

The deal means the second seasons of Detentionaire and Scaredy Squirrel will air on Cartoon Network in Latin America, alongside the third seasons of Sidekick and Mr Young.

Detentionaire follows a teenager’s quest to avoid a year’s worth of detention after being wrongly accused of an elaborate prank, while Scaredy Squirrel is based on the title character from the books written by Melanie Watt.

Sidekick, meanwhile, is an action animated comedy about a superhero sidekick, and Mr Young tells the story of a child prodigy who landed himself a job as a high school science teacher instructing students his own age.
