Cartoon Network Enterprises Extends Licensing Deal with Bell Sports for Ben 10 Alien Force

Long-Standing Partnership between the Two Companies Builds on Sporting Goods

Program for Evergreen Boys' Action Brand

Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE), the global licensing and merchandising arm of the children's network, announced today that it has renewed its licensing deal with Bell Sports, a leading designer, developer and marketer of sports equipment and protective products, for its top-selling Ben 10 franchise. Building on an existing relationship, this two-year deal includes a full line of safety helmets and knee/elbow pads from Bell Sports that features characters and designs from the hit Cartoon Network original series that is currently in its fifth year at retail. This line from Bell Sports will continue to be distributed at mass retailers nationwide and the announcement comes on the heels of CNE's recent deal with the company for a similar line based on Nelvana and Spin Master's hit Bakugan brand.

"Our Ben 10 consumer products program continues to thrive because of the outstanding support from our strong licensing and retail partners," said Christina Miller, senior vice president, CNE. "Bell Sports has been a great partner for us as we continue to grow the Ben 10 brand across all categories and retailers, and we are excited to continue our relationship through 2011."

As a top-rated Cartoon Network original series for boys, Ben 10 Alien Force continues the Ben 10 saga and picks up the story five years later when 15-year-old Ben Tennyson chooses to once again put on the OMNITRIX and discovers that he can now transform him into 10 brand new aliens. Created by Man of Action and produced at Cartoon Network Studios, episodes from the third season of the Ben 10 Alien Force series premiere on Cartoon Network on Friday nights 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) with replays throughout the week.
