UK's Hooray for Fish! Picture Book Made into Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Book by Lucy Cousins (Maisy) previously animated by King Rollo Films

The Hooray for Fish! children's picture book, the latest work from the English author-illustrator Lucy Cousins (Maisy series, Za Za's Baby Brother), is being made into a Japanese animated series that will premiere on Japan's NHK-Education public television network on October 4. The Hooray for Fish! Production Committee has launched a website for the series. Two five-minute episodes (out of 104 planned) about Little Fish and his colorful sea companions will air every Thursday and Friday at 7:15 a.m. WAO! World (Honey and Clover, Happy Lesson) is animating the series for Interchannel-Holon.

The United Kingdom's King Rollo Films had already produced an animated short for a 2006 Hooray for Fish! book/DVD edition. King Rollo Films also produced a 1998-2000 animated television series for the Maisy Mouse stories by the same author. Like the planned Hooray for Fish! animated series, the Maisy animated series was composed of 104 five-minute episodes.
