Ireland’s animation studio Kavaleer has started preproduction on a new animated preschool series titled Wildernuts. The 26 x7 series follows the adventures of a lively crew who navigate the skies on their flying ship, called The Cloud Hopper. Each episode sees them searching for a treasure that provides the key to what makes the place they are visiting so special: the rarer the species, the more unique the habitat, the more valuable the treasure.
The charming series which aims to introduce young viewers to the wonders of Earth’s native habitats, was created by Kavaleer founder and CEO Andrew Kavanagh and produced by managing director Gary Timpson. The 26-episode, Flash series will be delivered by December of 2013.
“Our five heroes explore a colorful island world on their flying ship, encountering a variety of ecosystems, from mountaintop to shore and everything in between, and each episode they bring back some souvenir to remind them of their voyage,” notes Timpson. “They are like curious pre-schoolers on a quest to discover the treasures of nature, and each episode they investigate a new location where they meet a ‘guide’ animal who introduces them to the other creatures and plants inhabiting the place.”
