Based on the original books by New York Times best-selling authors Jennifer & Matthew Holm, Squish (52 x 11) is an animated comedy about everyday school kids, their friendships, their parents, and their efforts to fit in. The series follows the adventures of a twinkie-eating grade school amoeba trying to find his place in a single-cell world. The series is produced by Cottonwood Media and Planeta Junior, in partnership with Gulli; developed by Head Writer John Derevlany (Johnny Test, Endangered Species, Angry Beaver) and distributed by Federation Kids & Family and Planeta Junior. Set in Small Pond, Squish’s hometown looks suspiciously like an ordinary suburb, with its tidy streets, schools and homes…with just one small difference: Small Pond is inhabited solely by single-celled organisms. They’re just like us – with a few unicellular quirks: algae are the cool kids, parasites can’t be trusted and, of course, bacteria always make a mess of everything.
Milo is a show produced by Fourth Wall Animation about an adventurous five-year-old cat called Milo who loves to use role-play to explore the wide world of jobs and vocations.

Every vocation is celebrated and shown in a positive light. In fact, Milo discovers that every vocation is amazing, giving a positive message to kids that they can be anything they want to be when they grow up.
