Gulli in Africa Comes On Board Jabu’s Jungle


DUBLIN: Gulli Africa has signed on to broadcast the South African township-produced kids’ series Jabu’s Jungle.

The Monster Entertainment-distributed 13×22-minute animated series is intended for kids aged 4 to 7. Gulli Africa will broadcast Jabu’s Jungle in 22 French-speaking African countries. The show follows the adventures of 9-year-old Jabu and his Magic Talking Drum as they explore the jungle and help animals in need.

Production has begun on the second season of the series, which is slated to launch at MIPJunior. The show is produced by Pixcomm Production in Cape Town’s Masiphumelele township through a production method that partners experienced animators with residents from the township. Working side by side with industry professionals, these young artists receive hands-on training.

Gulli Africa has previously acquired other Monster Entertainment-distributed South African series such as Magic Cellar.
