‘Peztronauta’ Swims to Discovery Familia
Discovery Familia will premiere the new animated, eco-friendly series Peztronauta (Fishtronaut) on January 16, at 6:30p. The series, which will air daily, follows the adventures of Peztronauta, a space-suit wearing fish, and his pals Marina and Zeek as they travel from their home at the Eco Zoo Park to solve mysteries and protect the environment and their friends.
Targeted to K4-7, the series also encourages viewers to interact with the characters by tapping and clapping along with Peztronauta. A co-production of Discovery Kids/Discovery Familia and Brazil’s TV PinGuim, Peztronauta has already attracted huge audiences in Latin America. The 52 X 11 show was created by TV PinGuim’s talented founders, Kiko Mistrorigo and Celia Catunda. Breakthrough and Millimages are the show’s distribution partners. An animated feature based on the clever toon is also in the works. Part of Discovery Communications, Discovery Familia is a Spanish language network aimed at Hispanic mothers and their kids.
