Another Season of Olobob Top for CBeebies, ABC, S4C


Olobob Top, an animated preschool series produced by Beakus, has been renewed for a 26×5-minute second installment that is due to debut on CBeebies, ABC and S4C in spring 2019.

Olobob Top follows the problem-solving adventures of three friends living in a huge forest, where they use shapes to build new characters. The sophomore season’s creative team will once again be led by co-creators Steve Smith and Leigh Hodgkinson, with Cloth Cat Animation serving as associate producer.

The show features the voice of Stephen Mangan (Episodes, Postman Pat, Green Wing). It is distributed by CAKE around the globe.

Smith, co-creator and producer/director, commented: “We’ve had such great support from CBeebies, ABC and S4C throughout, and are excited to team up again to create 26 brand-new stories featuring our favorite characters. The Olobob forest is endless and so is Leigh’s (Hodgkinson, co-creator and art director) imagination, so it’s really just a matter of choosing the very best ideas and honing them in to our trademark mix of beautiful design, creative play and surreal fun for our preschool fans!”

Jon Rennie, the managing director of Cloth Cat Animation, added: “We’re really excited to be working on the new series of Olobob Top with Steve and Leigh, once again showcasing the wealth of animation talent in Cardiff and the U.K. The response to the first series was incredibly positive and everyone on the team is looking forward to seeing more of the world and the new characters they’ll be bringing to life!”
