CBeebies Orders Second Season of Twirlywoos


HALIFAX: CBeebies has commissioned 25 new episodes of the preschool series Twirlywoos from DHX Media and Ragdoll Productions.

The sophomore season of Twirlywoos, which combines stop-frame animation and live-action sequences, will consist of 25 11-minute episodes. Twirlywoos are four small, bird-like characters that are inquisitive, enthusiastic and always looking to learn something new about the world. They seek out adventures and fun wherever they go.

The series is produced by Ragdoll Productions in association with DHX Media, which also handles global distribution, merchandising, brand management and marketing. Twirlywoos is devised and executive produced by the founder and creative director of Ragdoll Productions, Anne Wood, with lead creative and writer Steve Roberts and producer Chris Wood. The executive producer for CBeebies is Michael Towner.

Steven DeNure, the president and COO of DHX Media, said: “The response of preschool children and their parents to this series has been fantastic. Anne Wood and her team at Ragdoll have created another standout show that puts children’s development front and center and is hugely funny and charming to boot. We are very happy to be part of this superb, returning brand.”

Wood added: “Ragdoll is delighted that Twirlywoos makes children laugh as they learn.”
