Guru Releases Big Blue Theme Song by Timbaland

Guru Studio’s animated series Big Blue has released an extended version of the show’s theme song produced by Grammy Awards winning producer Timbaland. Written by Anthem Entertainment’s Jingle Punks, the catchy, heart-pumping hip-hop jam is available now across streaming services via Anthem Records.  “Trying something different is what it’s all about and being a part of a kids show that’s so unique is as different as it gets for me,” says Timbaland. “I’m looking forward to speaking to the next generation and helping to make a difference.”

Big Blue is produced by Toronto-based Guru Studio (PAW Patrol, True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Pikwik Pack) and follows sibling underwater adventurers Lettie and Lemo as they lead a quirky submarine crew with a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry. Encouraging kids to explore and protect our environment, Big Blue was created by Guru Studio designer Gyimah Gariba, a Ghanian-Canadian artist who has built a massive online following for his distinct illustrative style. Big Blue airs in Canada on CBC Kids and CBC Gem, and in the UK on Nickelodeon.
