The United Kingdom's BBC television network CBeebies has greenlit American Greetings Entertainment's 3DCG children's animated series Tinpo. Japan's Dentsu and OLM and Los Angeles-based studio Sprite Entertainment are producing the series in Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
The series will have 78 seven-minute episodes, and it is slated to premiere on CBeebies in late 2018. The series targeted at preschool children will center on the heroes of Tinpo town who create ways to solve problems in their world.
American Greetings Entertainment initially produced Tinpo as 30-second animated shorts that premiered in 2007 on CBS' KEWLopolis block. CBeebies posted several video collections on its YouTube channel last year.
