Semillitas, SomosTV’s 24-hour Spanish-language animation channel for toddlers and preschoolers, has added to its lineup Mouk, an educational series that showcases cultures from around the world.
The show is set to bow on the network on July 1. Mouk follows the titular bear and his friend Chavapa as they travel around the world showing the traditions, landscapes, dishes and typical music of the different countries they visit. The show aims to promote cultural diversity and teach kids geography.
The series also promotes the values of friendship, as well as the curiosity to know other individuals and places in a respectful way. Australia, Madagascar, Greece, India and Mexico are some of the countries that the two characters visit.
Produced by Milimages Studios and directed by Marc Boutavant, Mouk has been broadcast in Canada, the U.S., Russia, the Philippines, Singapore, Brazil, the U.K., Spain and Australia, among other countries.
Luis Villanueva, president and CEO of SomosTV, said: “The arrival of Mouk on Semillitas reinforces the great quality of the signal, which has allowed its international growth. Mouk has an educational content that fulfills the mission of the channel. Teaching these values to new generations is very important for the challenges they might face today and in the future. Moreover, the educational content and the support we offer to the parents who tune in our channel is the best way to build a healthy generation in every sense of the word.”
