Universal Says Boo! In Cannes

At a private event for buyers at MIPCOM in Cannes, Universal unveiled its new preschool animated series, Boo!. Produced by Tell-Tale Productions, the educational, developmental program based on the classic game of hide-and-seek will make its U.K. debut on BBC in fall 2003.

Conceived by Tweenies creators Will Brenton and Iaian Lauchlan, Boo! invites young viewers to interact with the program by finding Boo wherever he happens to be hiding, participating in games and activities, and joining in on songs with Boo’s friends Laughing Duck, Growling Tiger and Sleeping Bear.
