Big fun for little people
An exciting new entertainment destination for preschoolers.

Cartoonito is set to become an exciting new entertainment destination for preschoolers aged 3 to 6 and their parents. The programming block recently launched by Turner Broadcasting Systems broadcasts daily on Boomerang, available on DSTV channel 302. The Cartoonito block is a clearly signposted place where preschoolers and their parents can watch some of the best preschool content currently available from around the world.  Children want choice, and with this brand roll out the aim is is to serve some of the best preschool content to audiences in a range of markets, and give the kids that choice. 

Highlights in the schedule include the new series of Bananas in Pyjamas which is one of the flagship debut shows.  Produced by Southern Star Entertainment/Southern Star Singapore (a division of Endemol Group) in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the well-known series has a much-loved heritage and a quirky feel that will fit aptly with the channel’s vibrant and imaginative brand attributes. 

Also forming part of the debut line up will be Jelly Jamm, an exciting new 3D animated series.  The future of Cartoonito is looking bright with the recent announcement that a brand new series of LazyTown is planned.  The world renowned preschool series which helps young children understand how to lead a healthy, active lifestyle will go into production early next year.

Also making the leap to Cartoonito across Africa will be the actual Cartoonitos, six cute animated character shapes that introduce shows in the continuity breaks, called Lolly, Bubble, Cuba, Spike, Ting and Ringo. As the familiar faces of the channel, the Cartoonitos bring Cartoonito its creative and identifiable personality.

Aside from the fabulous programmes, kids can also enjoy the fun and imaginative games and promotions available online on the Cartoonito website: Cartoonito is set to delight audiences in Africa as a hub of fun with funny and imaginative entertainment for preschoolers and their parents.
