Radical Sheep greenlights new projects for Disney Junior Canada


Toronto-based kids TV producer Radical Sheep Productions has begun production on CG-animated preschool series Yub Yubs for Disney Junior Canada, slated to air in 2013.

The company is also producing two Stella and Sam holiday specials for the channel for 2013.

“The fun series from Radical Sheep deliver exactly what our audience is looking for – engaging characters, storylines and an element of discovery. Both the series and specials will focus on relationships between siblings and encourage exploration that will ignite young minds,” said Astral Kids director of original programming Michael Goldsmith in a statement.

Yub Yubs, featuring three characters whose feelings are expressed by changing into other physical forms, is created by Matt Fernandes of Toronto- and Melbourne-based interactive studio Industrial Brothers.

The series will also have an interactive mobile component.

The Stella and Sam Christmas and Halloween-themed specials will each include an original music video. The preschool animated series is based on the books by Marie-Louise Gay.
