Oddbods is a globally loved, three-time Emmy Award-nominated, non-dialogue comedy featuring seven adorable, highly unique pals. Together, despite their differences, they survive the perils of everyday life, unintentionally turning ordinary situations into extraordinary, and always humorous events. The quirky but totally charming Oddbods celebrate individuality in a funny, warm and unexpected way. After all, there’s a little odd in everyone!
Antiks is a minimal-dialogue, slapstick comedy for kids aged 3-9 years and follows two sibling ants, Joey and Boo. With an appetite for food, mischief and minuscule levels of mass-destruction, nothing escapes their beady little eyes.
Targeting kids aged 6-9 years, Insectibles is a comedy adventure series which follows the adventures of Zak, Gramps, and three bio-mechanically enhanced insects as they search for the missing pieces of the ‘Shrinkinator’ – the crazy invention that shrunk Zak and Gramps before it exploded. They need to find the missing pieces and fix the Shrinkinator all while evading their enemies!
Educational adventure series Rob the Robot targets kids aged 3-5 years and sees Rob and his friends, Orbit, Ema, T.K., and Squeak, take adventures across the many amazing planets in the Robot Galaxy, a fantastical world of fun and imagination. Each mission requires the help or involvement of his friends and their unique abilities, be it T.K.’s logical thinking or Ema’s language and early reading knowledge.
