If all you know about Jibjab is their personalized e-greeting cards and occasional satirical viral videos, get ready to experience a new side of the company—one that shows they can produce children’s entertainment at the highest level.
Over the last few years, Jibjab has been building out its multiplatform children’s interactive learning brand Storybots through apps, e-books, and online videos. The Storybots are now set to receive their biggest audience yet when Netflix launches the original series Ask the Storybots. Here’s the trailer released today:
Six half-hour episodes will start streaming on Netflix next Friday, August 12, in English-speaking markets, including the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. In each episode of the mixed-media series, which utilizes drawn animation, CG, stop motion, and live-action, the Storybots quintet—Beep, Bing, Bang, Boop, and Bo—embark on an adventure to find the answer to a simple question, like “Why is the sky blue?”
