Toronto-based studio Guru is getting ready to show the world their new animated preschool series, Pikwik. The series was picked up by Disney Junior, with plans to air the series in the US, Australia/New Zealand, Korea, and India. The show is said to revolve around the charming adventures of a group of colorful and super cute young animals.
Pikwik is aimed at children aged 2 to 5, and is set in the town of PikWik where every day is a new surprise and full of lessons about teamwork, responsibility, and critical thinking. The first season consists of 52 x 11 minute episodes.
Pikwik was created by Guru’s Executive Creative Director Frank Falcone, Development Executive Rachel Reade Marcus, and former EVP Mary Bredin.
“We love the world of Pikwik. This adorable cast of characters has already inspired our team of artists to tap that innocent joy that we love to bring to our animated stories. We’re thrilled to be working with the amazing team at Disney Junior, who share our passion and enthusiasm for these characters and their stories,” said Falcone.
Reade Marcus commented: “We can’t wait to introduce preschoolers and their families to the quirky and bustling world of Pikwik where fun and duty go hand in hand!”
