Guru Studio’s charming, 2D-animated show Justin Time will premiere on 24-hour preschool channel Sprout this Sunday (April 22). Sprout has already acquired two seasons of the show which has attracted audiences on numerous networks around the world, including Discovery Kids Latin America and Disney Junior.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Sprout to introduce Justin Time to children and parents all across America,” said Frank Falcone, Guru’s president and creative director. “Sprout is a fast-growing, trusted destination for extraordinary preschool programming, and we’re proud that Justin Time will now be among this premiere channel’s standout offerings for quality children’s media.”
Created by Brandon Scott and developed by Falcone, Mary Bredin and Scott, the show features a young boy named Justin, who embarks on imaginary adventures with his make-believe friends Squidgy, a shape-shifting piece of yellow clay, and Olive, the group’s trusty navigator and guide. Together, the intrepid, high-spirited trio takes off on bite-size historical adventures. During their far-flung quests, they encounter a wide range of memorable and endearing characters.
The Justin Time website, co-produced by Zincroe and Guru Studio, invites preschoolers and their families into Justin’s world to extend the fun and further the pro-social messages of the series beyond the TV screen with a range of online scroller games and apps.
