Little Airplane Productions and HIT Entertainment, two of the most high profile and trusted names in preschool television, have announced details of the first project to come from their development agreement, Billy Birthday Boy. The delightful 52 x 11’ animated series, about a young boy who saves birthday parties gone awry, will be pitched to broadcasters at MIP Jr in October.
Little Airplane and HIT Entertainment joined their considerable creative forces to develop high quality, original content for the worldwide market. Targeted at girls and boys aged 3-5, Billy Birthday Boy is the first major project to be launched from their collaboration.
The educational curriculum for Billy Birthday Boy was written by Dr. Christine Ricci (Dora The Explorer) and centers around the development of Planning Skills. The series will be completely interactive so that the child-viewer will feel that they are an integral part of every show and will attend the birthday party that takes place at the end of every episode.
