Chinese CG-animated series Super BOOMi is about to make its Canadian debut. Corus Entertainment’s Treehouse channel will launch the series on Sunday, May 19th at 7:55 PM. Two of 40 x 11-minute episodes from the first season will air in that slot weekly.
Here’s a description of the first six episodes:

The series is created by Trevor Trevor Lai, CEO and founder of Up Studios. With two 52x11min seasons, Super BOOMi has built an extensive audience in China through the animation house’s partnership with tech giant Tencent. Tencent has continued to build on its capital investment in Up Studios’ properties, putting seasons 3 and 4 of Super BOOMi into production. Within nine months, the series racked up more than 930 million views on the company’s video platforms. Super BOOMi also airs on local broadcasters KAKU, CCTV and Hunan TV.
In April of last year, Up Studios announced an agreement with Nelvana to bring the series globally. Nelvana is also owned by Treehouse’s Corus Entertainment.
