The preschool series, which has seen success in the UK and Australia, launches on the SVOD giant in the US and Canada September 2.
New animated preschool series Kazoops will make its US and Canadian debut on Netflix on September 2.
The series—from Australian TV producer Cheeky Little Media—will be available on Netflix in a bumper 19-minute format made up of 3 x seven-minute episodes. The first season will include seven episodes and a further 19 episodes will follow in Q1 2017.
Kazoops went to air in Australia and the UK this summer, scoring 24.2% of the CBeebies audience in its second week on the UK pubcaster.
The series follows the adventures of six-year-old Monty and his pet pig Jimmy Jones as they challenge preconceptions with creative play and critical thinking. Each episode sees Monty and Jimmy Jones enter a make-believe world and features a unique two-minute song.
Paying homage to the art of Claymation, sequences in Monty’s make-believe worlds integrate CGI and 2D-animated graphic elements that results in imagery the viewers can recreate themselves with simple craft materials at home.
