Sky Kids Sets Two New Animated Shows


Two new animated series, Happy Town and Let’s Go, Bananas!, are set to debut on Sky Kids later this year.

Narrated by Mel B, Happy Town follows the problem-solving adventures of a hedgehog and ladybug duo. The brightness of their town depends on the community’s happiness, so each time it starts to dull, the duo sets out on a mission to make it shine bright again.

They do so by helping others and encouraging everyone else to help each other too.

“This is a huge moment for me to be the voice of Happy Town for Sky Kids—my first time ever as a narrator,” Mel B said. “I’ve actually spent years looking for the perfect children’s show to get involved with because I’m a mum of three and I strongly believe that little ones learn so much through brilliant, colorful, creative storytelling. Happy Town is all about kindness and community and a cute ladybird and hedgehog duo who make it their mission to help people. I’m totally in love with this gorgeous Sky Kids show. At its heart is fun, adventure and great entertainment—just like me really!”

Let’s Go, Bananas!, created and written by Tim Bain (Bluey, PJ Masks), focuses on a community of three neighboring animal families who share each other’s triumphs, dramas and crazy lives. The show is a celebration of different family structures and all the chaos, joy and messy moments that every family experiences.

Lucy Murphy, director of Sky Kids, said, “Full of positivity and encouraging creative thinking, Happy Town is a burst of color and joy that is completely encapsulated in the brilliant Mel B’s warm and engaging narration. And we’re delighted to be working with Tim Bain on the hilarious Let’s Go, Bananas!, which shows kids that family is what you make it.”
