Ecological awareness is on the mind of Beary Boo, a new animated series about a green-living brown bear cub, which will be distributed by L.A.-based Porchlight Ent. and produced by Caboom, a production company with offices in L.A. and Dublin. Developed by Caboom, the new toon targets kids 3-6. This deal marks the Irish outfit’s first distribution deal of an original property in the US.
The preschool show follows the adventures of a brown bear cub named Beary who joins the Fuzzy Scouts and marches to the tune of conservation and living green. In the town of Greenly Woods, Beary and his cub pals, Nate, Carlotta, and Growell are dedicated to their Scout motto which is ‘A clean world is a green world.’
‘We are pleased to be working with the talented team at Caboom on Beary Boo,’ says Fred Schaefer, PorchLight’s senior VP of animation. ‘With Beary Boo, Caboom has created an exceptional series that combines great designs, humor, and entertaining stories with messages on conservation, recycling, and other eco-conscious themes.’
‘Beary Boo is part of a slate of original animated and live-action projects that we are developing and pitching in the US,’ notes Caboom’s creative director, Damian Farrell. ‘We are very excited to partner with the PorchLight team as their knowledge, experience and most importantly their enthusiasm, will be invaluable in helping us bring Beary Boo to life.’
