Nickelodeon is going to launch new animated series Kinderwood directly onto its interactive learning SVOD Noggin. The 30 x seven-minute preschool show is created and produced by LA-based Titmouse.
Kinderwood features five best friends who play, learn and grow together in a fantastical world that can transform into new environments. It has a social-emotional curriculum focused on friendship, compassion and problem-solving skills, and each episode sees the characters try to understand someone else’s point of view. The series fits into Noggin’s “big heart” educational approach to building preschoolers’ emotional knowledge, according to Nickelodeon.
Kinderwood is created and co-executive produced by Otto Tang (Big Mouth), with Chris Prynoski (T.O.T.S.) and Carin Greenberg (Tumble Leaf) also serving as exec producers. Production for Nickelodeon Animation Studio is overseen by Nickelodeon Preschool SVP Eryk Casemiro.
The series is part of Noggin’s original content slate, which also includes School of Yum, Word Play and Imagination Trips.
Kinderwood will launch on December 3 with a festive episode that plays into Nickelodeon’s “Nickmas” holiday-themed lineup across all of its channels and platforms. Noggin also has more than 50 pieces of long- and short-form festive content available now.
