Created by award-winning art director Bridget Appleby, Cloudbabies (52 x 10’) made its colourful debut on CBeebies in the UK in May 2012. Aimed at pre-schoolers, the enchanting series features the adventures of four adorable, childlike characters whose job it is to look after the sky and their Sky Friends.
Aimed at 6-1- year old boys, Everybody Loves a Moose (52 x 7’) is an anarchic slapstick comedy featuring the adventures of Jack and his impulsive friend Moose, which takes viewers back to the golden age of cartoon capers.
Abadas (52 x 11’) is a mixed media animation and live action series for pre-schoolers which introduces pre-schoolers to the language through play via the pages of a delightful, animated pop-up book.
