New Polly Pocket series debuts on Hulu


DHX’s new Polly Pocket animated series is now available in the United States on Hulu. The subscription video-on-demand service added the entire 26 x 22-minute first season to its platform late last month. The series weaves a story for a newly imagined take on Mattel’s classic line of miniature dolls of the same name.

There’s no dream too big, no adventure too small for Polly Pocket!

Polly is often told she’s “too little” to do the things she wants to do, but Polly proves what every kid already knows—that being little isn’t a limitation, it’s her greatest strength. When Polly Pocket inherits a magic heirloom locket that allows her to shrink to four inches tall, she embraces her pocket-sized powers and finds the upside of shrinking is big fun for her and her best friends. So grab your BFFs and get ready to see how powerful pocket-sized can be. TINY POWER!

The series stars Emily Tennant as Polly, with her best friends Shani and Lila voiced by Kazumi Evans and Shannon Chan Kent, respectively. The 2D-animated Polly Pocket is produced by DHX Studios Vancouver.

To celebrate the show’s launch, the official Polly Pocket YouTube channel is streaming the show’s first two episodes for free. The episodes, also distributed as a TV special, previously aired on NBCUniversal’s Universal Kids cable channel in the United States on December 9, 2018.

Polly Pocket first launched on DHX’s Family Channel on August 4, 2018 in Canada, with a special preview airing July 1st. The series has since landed broadcast deals with POP (U.K.); RTL Telekids (Netherlands); Kidzone TV (Baltics); Lagardère’s Gulli and TiJi (France), Gulli AFRICA (22 African-French speaking countries) and Gulli Girl (Russia); teleTOON+ (Poland); AMC Minimax (Eastern Europe); vtmkzoom (Belgium); Canal Panda (Portugal); Turner (Italy, Middle East, Turkey and Greece); Star Channel (Greece); kidZ (Israel); SABC (South Africa); and Discovery Kids (Latin America).

Originally a line of British toys from Bluebird, Polly Pocket debuted in 1989. The miniature dolls and play sets previously inspired a trilogy of direct-to-video features in the early 2000s, with a web-series accompanying the brand’s makeover in 2010.
