Nelvana picks up preschool anime Paboo & Mojies
I’m a bit late on this, as earlier in the week Nelvana picked up a Japanese anime series from SEGA Toys, and Daewon Media called Paboo & Mojies. The 26 episode half hour series is aimed at a preschool audience and stars our titular panda, Paboo as learn a lesson each day. That reminds me of a certain other Nelvana anime series starring pandas … Here is the description Nelvana gave Paboo & Mojies for their MIPCOM booth:
Direct from Japan, Nelvana welcomes you to Mojies Town – a magical land filled with Mojies – where letters and learning combine to create laughter for all! Paboo is a fun loving and curious boy panda, and he and his group of larger-than-life friends explore and problem-solve in their quirky, imaginative and sometimes zany world! Each episode sees the Mojies (Japanese for letters of the alphabet) and Maki (the Mojies book fairy of course!) help Paboo to discover the Magic Word and solve the problem of the day! Paboo & Mojies is a top-rated show in Japan (BS Fuji TV) and will treat an international audience to real Japanese characters, animation and storytelling that could only come from Japan. For preschoolers. 26 x half-hour episodes (52 x 11-minute segments)
Nelvana previously collaborated with SEGA Toys on the Bakugan franchise. Paboo & Mojies premiered this past April in Japan, and will premiere on Treehouse sometime soon. Once it does, it’ll be joining the ranks of Deko Boko Friends as anime that has aired on the channel.
