A new season of Rookie Robot Explores the World (26 x 3’) is in production with the first 13 episodes being delivered in June 2023 and the next 13 in December 2023.
Meta Media Entertainment has recently taken over worldwide distribution and has licensed Season 1 (26 x 3’) to NRK Norway, ERR Estonia, Filmin Spain and Filmin Portugal. This follows previous sales to Daekyo Kids TV, Daekyo Baby TV, ORF Austria/Flimmit and Canadian Knowledge Network.
Rookie Robot is a non-dialogue series for preschoolers, created and produced in Vienna by Sine Lege Film in cooperation with Leiss Postproduction. The show follows the adventures of a curious and friendly little bot named Rookie as he explores the world, meets new friends and experiences exciting adventures. From helping a hoarse lion find his roar to learning to jump into the sea under instructions from a lifeguard turtle or keeping the environment clean by collecting plastic bags very playfully: The simple and charming stories entertain with fun and witty ideas.
But Rookie Robot is more than just a fun cartoon. It encourages curiosity and highlights important values like patience, perseverance and respect for all individuals as well as for our planet. Rookie’s encounters focus on openness and empathy, showing with a funny twist that we are all stronger together. And with each episode, Rookie learns a little more about the world around him, inspiring young viewers to do the same.
Created by kids for kids. What differentiates Rookie Robot is that all the characters of the show are based on original children’s line drawings, making it easy for young viewers to connect with both storyline and characters.
Josef Pallwein-Prettner, Producer at Sine Lege Film, says “The aim of the show is to encourage our little ones to be (and stay) curious, creative and social. By using original kids’ drawings, we “speak their universal language” and emphasise that we can all learn from each other”.
Christian Leiss of Leiss Animation & Postproduction says “Rookie is one of a kind: Its simple, coloured in, illustration-based cartoon style with a tick of retro touch is different from most programmes on the market”.
Sara Cooper, Founder at Meta Media Entertainment, says “I am so delighted that Rookie Robot is in production for a 2nd season and that kids around the world will be able to enjoy even more fun adventures with this cheeky little robot”.
