Planeta Junior, a leading European children’s and youth entertainment company, Triacom Audiovisual, Televisión Española, Televisió de Catalunya and Toonz Entertainment have joined forces to produce BUBBLE BIP, an animated comedy following the adventures of Bip, a wacky, curious, video game super hero, and his new friends in the real world.
Bip is an action game hero who’s tired of chasing and warring and discovers a door into the real world which takes him to a fascinating, new, location: a children’s playground. Here he meets Nil, Lena, Mia and Marc and together they go on crazy adventures that teach them to look at the world in a new light.
BUBBLE BIP targets 4 - 7 year olds and comprises 52 episodes of 7 minutes, each telling a complete story. Bip and his friends show little people that it’s not bad to think differently and you shouldn’t be afraid of getting things wrong. BUBBLE BIP is a series with a markedly transmedia nature as the action occurs between Bip’s video game world and the real world inhabited by his friends.
Planeta Junior is responsible for distributing and marketing the series and its licenses worldwide presented BUBBLE BIP at the Focus on Spain at the Marché International du Films d’Animation (MIFA), which was held on Wednesday in parallel to the world’s most important animation festival: the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
Ignacio Segura, General Director of Planeta Junior, highlighted: “We are proud to join partners representing the best of Western and Asian animation in a comedy we are sure will delight children all over the world. ‘Bubble Bip’ is a series that represents what Planeta Junior has been pursing for some time: bringing together the best local talent to reach international audiences”.
