Vibrant, original Australian animation series Kazoops is sure to brighten up the winter days when it debuts on ABC KIDS on Monday, 1 August 2016.
The series will air daily on ABC KIDS (TV and ABC iView) at 8am and 5.50pm from Monday to Saturday, and is a coproduction between ABC, Netflix and CBeebies, produced by Australia’s award winning animators Cheeky Little Media.
Aimed at 3-5 year old viewers, Kazoops follows the adventures of Monty, an inquisitive six-year-old with a vivid imagination, and Jimmy Jones, his loyal best friend. In each episode Monty confronts a preconception about the world in which he lives, usually imposed by grownups, and sets out to challenge it by embarking on a wild imaginary adventure with Jimmy Jones that offers them a fresh perspective.
Each adventure is set to unique songs written and recorded by Australian musician Scott Langley. The music covers a rich variety of styles and incorporates everything from guitars and ukuleles to drums, glockenspiels, retro synths, strings and vocals.
Kazoops demonstrates the value of critical thinking and creative play, encouraging pre-schoolers to learn valuable lessons from Monty and Jimmy Jones’ adventures and to cherish friendships and the value of childhood wonder and creative thinking.
