WarnerMedia Kids & Family Adds "Bing," "Dylan," "Odo" and "Pocoyo" to its Upcoming Preschool Fare on Cartoonito

July 27, 2021 - Burbank, CA - WarnerMedia Kids & Family expands Cartoonito's preschool slate with the recently greenlit animated series Dylan, as well as three animated acquisitions: Bing, Odo, and Pocoyo. The growing roster joins previously announced series Batwheels, Little Ellen, multiple forthcoming projects from best-selling children's book author Mo Willems, and more, that will be available on the upcoming preschool programming block launching this fall on HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

Cartoonito was announced at the WarnerMedia Kids & Family Upfront earlier this year and is WarnerMedia's biggest commitment to preschool in 100 years. It offers a modern approach to preschool programming with its proprietary educational framework, Humancentric Learning, that aims to support every child's humanness by celebrating their unique selves. All Cartoonito preschool content will align with Humancentric Learning and Cartoon Network's refreshed brand promise, Redraw Your World, which fosters self-expression and creativity.

New series greenlight for Cartoonito:

Dylan -Based on the book series by bestselling illustrator/author Guy Parker-Rees, Dylan is a CG animated interactive comedy about a highly imaginative, multi-colored striped dog who is eager to play pretend every career, from a train conductor to a nurse to an astronaut. With just some basic props and some great friends, Dylan transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, jumping feet first into every adventure that comes his way. Fueled by creativity, Dylan models best of play and improv leading to wildly original escapades that empower and encourage kids to trust their hearts, imaginations and each other. A CBC original series, Dylan is developed by Toronto-based 9 Story Media Group and produced by 9 Story's award-winning, Ireland-based animation studio Brown Bag Films.

Newly acquired series for Cartoonito:

Bing - Bing celebrates the joyful, messy reality of preschool life and finds the big stories in the little moments. Bing is a lovable, authentic preschooler, who lives very much in the present moment. Each moment brings new experiences for Bing, which often lead to a bump, spillage or temporary disappointment. By Bing's side, through it all, is Flop, whose patience and encouragement help Bing, along with his audience, to experience and learn from life's unpredictable moments. Produced by Acamar Films, in association with Brown Bag Films, Bing has achieved iconic success since it launched in the UK in 2014, winning the International Emmy for Best Children's Program, the Writer's Guild Award for Best Writing in a Children's Program, and a BAFTA nomination for Best Children's Program. Bing is broadcast in 130 territories worldwide and was originally adapted for television by Acamar Films from the bestselling preschool books written and illustrated by Ted Dewan.

Although he is one of the littlest campers at the Forest Camp for Young Birds, Odo the owl knows he can do absolutely anything that he sets his mind to. With gender-neutral appeal, Odo also deals with important themes such as immigration, racism, respect for others and shows kids how to deal with setbacks in a meaningful way while promoting the development of self-efficacy and encouraging kids to believe in themselves.

Pocoyo - Pocoyo is a preschool series created and produced by Zinkia Entertainment. It tells the story of a curious little boy discovering the world around him, and accompanied by his best friends: Pato, Elly, Sleepy Bird and a whole cast of surprising and delightful characters.
