Silvergate Media has confirmed the global broadcast premiere of its new preschool animation, Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt, with the show debuting on Netflix on Friday May 8.
Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt is an animated action adventure comedy series for kids aged 3-6 which comes from the creators of the global preschool hit, Octonauts.
38 x 11’ episodes have been commissioned in addition to a 1 x 22’ special which will be available on the SVOD platform globally, led by the US.
Based on the bestselling book series by Chris Monroe, the show’s storylines and slapstick comedy are underpinned by strong STEM themes. The series follows the adventures of Chico Bon Bon and his Fix-It Force as they solve engineering problems for the mechanically challenged town of Blunderburg.
Silvergate is supporting the Netflix launch with a number of marketing initiatives including supplementary short-form promotional content which will be available on its official YouTube channel, plus an educational outreach programme in partnership with Young Minds Inspired targeting elementary schools across the US.
