Children’s and family entertainment company Kid Glove, founder Brenda Wooding and award-winning author, illustrator and animation creator/co-director James Proimos have teamed up to produce The Witch Sisters, a new series of animated shorts for Sesame Workshop’s Sesame Studios channel on YouTube.
The first episode launched March 21; new episodes arrive each week.
The Witch Sisters follows the adventures of Little Witch, who can’t wait to grow up and be like her sister, Big Witch. In each episode, she hatches a plan to use her magical spelling powers — but there’s a comical twist as she spells (and misspells) various things and turns herself into whatever she spells with a big “poof.”
The series is created, designed and written Proimos, and features original songs composed by Nashville-based children’s musician Emily Arrow, and the voice-over talent of LA-based Jan Johns.
Proimos is author and illustrator of more than 20 books, including Swim! Swim!, Todd’s TV and New York Times Bestselling author Suzanne Collins’ picture book, The Year of the Jungle.
Wooding is the international producer on the new animated feature from Bits Productions of Brazil, Tito and the Birds executive producer of animated comedy from creator Pedro Eboli, Oswaldo (in production with Birdo Studios and Symbiosys Ent.); the internationally syndicated Space Racers (produced in collaboration with NASA); and the animated broadcast comedy SheZow created by Obie Scott Wade (produced by Moody Street Kids and Kickstart, airing on Discovery Family, Netflix).
