BBC Worldwide and CBeebies have teamed up for new factual preschool series Andy’s Baby Animals. The 20 x 10-minute co-production is presented and narrated by popular children’s host Andy Day (pictured) of the hit BBC/CBeebies series Andy’s Wild Adventures and Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures.
The educational series, featuring some of the world’s most adorable infant animals, is produced in conjunction with the BBC Natural History unit.
Andy’s Baby Animals is also being sold as a local format opportunity entitled Amazing Baby Animals, which excludes Day so territories can cast their own preferred local presenters.
To date, Andy’s Wild Adventures and Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures have each been sold into more than 120 territories.
BBC Worldwide is bowing the series at MIPCOM, where it will also present season two of Studio AKA’s animated preschool series Hey Duggee, season three of the acclaimed series Sarah and Duck, the fourth season of Boat Rocker Studios’ The Next Step , and three new half-hour Horrible Histories specials (Sensational Shakespeare, Staggering Storytellers and The Grisly Great Fire of London).
