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.
