除了加拿大和美国，这部动画在全球儿童电视领域也占据了一席之地，在法国TF1频道、德国Super RTL频道、澳大利亚Disney频道、意大利的Nickelodeon频道、葡萄牙的Canal Panda频道、芬兰的Can YLE/TV2频道以及以色列的HOP频道都能看到这部动画。
Sprout电视台签下美国的首播合约时正值其为九月份正式转型成为环球少儿（Universal Kids）这一新频道做准备（其中仍涵盖Sprout的学龄前板块），这一战略使得NBC环球获得了全新内容的播出许可，包括Norm和Powerbirds 两部动画的播放权，进一步促进了该全新频道的推出。
NBCUniversal-owned Sprout has picked up the first two seasons of Ranger Rob from Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana. The series made its US debut on the preschool channel on July 8.
The show follows ranger-in-training Rob around Big Sky Park. It will air Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. ET as well as Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. ET.
Ranger Rob, which debuted on Corus-owned Treehouse in Canada last fall, recently received a second season greenlight for an additional 14 episodes.
Beyond Canada and the US, the toon also airs on TF1 in France, Super RTL in Germany, Disney Channel in Australia, Nickelodeon in Italy, Canal Panda in Portugal, YLE/TV2 in Finland and HOP in Israel.
The broadcasting deal comes as Sprout readies for its September transition to become Universal Kids (which will include a Sprout preschool block). The move follows NBCUniversal greenlighting a slate of content in anticipation of the launch of its new channel, including Norm and Powerbirds.
