Have you heard the news? Miffy is coming back on our screens this Friday on Tiny Pop.
I am so excited because I love Miffy. My two teenagers now 14 and 13 used to love watching Miffy and had lots of her books (we still have a few) so I have been a fan of Miffy for a good few years now.
I mentioned to my teen daughter that Miffy will be back and her words were “Ooh I’m definitely watching that” so the memory of this white bunny has clearly never left her.
I will be watching and introducing my three year old to her too 🙂
Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small airs exclusively across the channel’s Freeview, satellite and cable platforms from 2nd October.
After launching on Freeview channel 126 in January this year Tiny Pop became available in 26.3 million homes. It has since more than doubled its ratings to become the third strongest channel overall for Kids 4-6, after CBeebies and Disney Junior.
With Miffy’s 60th anniversary celebrations in full swing this year, the new series marks the first time the iconic white bunny has ever been seen in CGI.
Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small has been developed by London-based animation studio Blue-Zoo, and features 52 x 7’ episodes. It is the animated sequel to the successful Miffy and Friends, the initial stop motion series which aired in more than 70 countries from 2003 onwards.
Featuring new children’s voices, plus new characters and locations, each CGI episode features Miffy exploring the exciting world around her, with simple narrative and cheerful songs to drive it along. It will be faster paced and have more expressive animation than the previous series, yet remains true to the simplicity and iconic style of Miffy’s creator, Dick Bruna.
Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small will become a key part of Tiny Pop’s evening block, Cuddle Time, which features gentle programming allowing kids, mums and dads to enjoy calmer family favourites before bedtime. Tiny Pop has the strongest evening viewing figures in the kids’ category, from 7pm-midnight.
Will you be watching? It sounds fantastic doesn’t it?
