|Peter Rabbit on Nickelodeon|
Ireland's largest animation company is Brown Bag Films in Dublin. The country has been focusing on developing its animation artists for two decades now, and it is paying off big time.
The studio's big success was their version of "Peter Rabbit," adapted from the classic children's books by Beatrix Potter. "Peter Rabbit" was distributed on the Nickelodeon Network and is a production of Brown Bag Films and Silvergate Media. Peter Rabbit is voiced by Colin DePaula, with additional voices by Dave B. Mitchell and Gwenfair Vaughan.
