“We are excited to expand on the world of Oddbods with the new fantastical world of Minibods and reach audiences with the same imaginative universe and new loveable characters,” said Moonbug CEO René Rechtman.
Moonbug Entertainment has launched an Oddbods spin-off YouTube channel in Minibods.
Minibods is a non-dialogue, slapstick pre-school comedy series that follows the adventures of six furry friends who ‘bring the silly to every situation’.
Minibods features five characters from Oddbods – Bubbles, Jeff, Newt, Pogo, and Fuse – along with new addition Lulu. Each episode includes kid-relatable obstacles, such as learning how to ride a bicycle and baking.
Episode learnings are focused on the social-emotional development of pre-schoolers through ‘accidental learning,’ which teaches children by naturally modelling positive behaviours.
“At Moonbug, we strive to bring together humour, entertainment, and learning as we create characters, stories and worlds that captivate and resonate with kids across the globe,” said Moonbug CEO René Rechtman.
“We are excited to expand on the world of Oddbods with the new fantastical world of Minibods and reach audiences with the same imaginative universe and new loveable characters.”
Show writers include BAFTA and Emmy Award winner Adam Redfern (Go Jetters, The Adventures of Paddington), BAFTA nominee and British Animation Award winner Dave Ingham (Lucas the Spider, Chip & Potato, Mush Mush & The Mushables), Jo Clegg (Hey Duggee, Gaspard & Lisa), and James Phelan (Oddbods).
The series will feature 39 seven-minute episodes with one new episode being released weekly every Saturday.
