NEW SERIES: 

Big Blue (52×11’, ages 5-9) follows underwater sibling adventurers Lettie and Lemo, leaders of a quirky submarine crew bound to protect a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry as they discover deep conflicts among the denizens of a vast ocean-covered planet. The series is packed with comedy and high stakes adventure and will inspire kids to make their world a better place as they dive deep into the mysteries of the ocean.

Pikwik Pack (52×11’, ages 2-5) follows Suki the hedgehog, Axel the raccoon, Tibor the hippo and Hazel the cat (the Pikwik Pack) as they deliver surprise-filled packages to the charming residents of Pikwik.

True and the Rainbow Kingdom (30×22′, 5×22′ Seasonal Specials + 1×44′ Holiday Special & Bonus Content) has quickly built a massive global following with its timely message of empowering children to be mindful, courageous and respectful of all living things. True is everything you’d want in a hero: she’s brave, smart and compassionate. She doesn’t wield a sword or wave a wand, but instead, it’s her kindness, confidence, selfless nature and care for the world around her that makes her aspirational for girls and boys.

Justin Time (74×11’ episodes & 2×22 mini movies, preschool): Justin and his imaginary pals Olive and Squidgy travel in time to every corner of the world, as Justin’s imagination catapults them into larger-than-life historical adventures.
