I have never seen a reaction to a kids’ series like I have with MeteoHeroes – and let’s face it, I’ve seen some pretty huge reactions," Viselman said.

All North American distribution and marketing aspects for both the series and the first Mondo/Viselman collaboration, the videogame "MeteoHeroes – Saving Planet Earth" for Sony PlayStation, will be managed by Viselman’s itsy bitsy Entertainment Company (TibECo) in partnership with the show’s co-producers Mondo TV S.p.A and leading weather forecasting centre Meteo Operations Italia (MOPI).
