Global animation studio and content creator 3D Sparrow has partnered with international children’s distributor Bejuba! to bring its award-winning kids’ series Booba to broadcasters around the world. Bejuba! will introduce season 3 to the broadcast community as well as promoting Booba seasons 1 and 2 globally.
Booba is a non-dialogue family show that features the adventures of a joyful, funny and curious little creature called Booba. He always gets into entertaining situations in his exploration of the places he finds himself. He’s smart and kind, but very clumsy, making everybody laugh.
Since the show launched in 2016, it has become one of the most-watched children’s entertainment properties on streaming platforms, reaching more than 5.3 billions views to date across Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and others, as well as airing with broadcasters in Europe (Super! & DeaKids), MENA (MBC3) and Russia (Carousel, Moolt).
Season 3 will launch with 26 new and improved episodes, each 5 minutes long, all directed by the newly appointed creative director Debbie Macdonald, formerly Nickelodeon VP.
Season 3 follows the adventures of Booba and his friends Loola, Spike and Mr. Beak, as they travel through time, sometimes even meeting Booba’s own counterpart from the past and the future. The new season will be fully delivered in November 2020.
“The whole 3D Sparrow team is proud to watch our cunning little character entering into a third series production for our current TV channel partners,” said Nick Okorokov, CEO of 3D Sparrow. “Our collaboration with Bejuba! will be a huge driver to secure more broadcast opportunities for Booba.”
“Bejuba! is proud to represent Booba as the latest star IP in our content catalogue. The animated phenomenon is adored by kids from 5 to 12 and already present on digital platforms and European broadcasters and we’re keen to drive further success to secure the best broadcast opportunities for the new season of Booba,” said Tatiana Kober, President of Bejuba!
