Buddi-Netflix
Launching on Netflix worldwide on March 20, 2020, BUDDI is set in a beautifully designed, sensory world of imagination and exploration.

Keith Chapman, of Paw PatrolBob the Builder and Fifi & the Flowertots fame, has turned his attention to the world of early pre-school for the first time by joining forces with Unanico Studios and series creator, Jason Jameson, to collaborate on Netflix’s new animated preschool series BUDDI. The show is aimed at the early pre-school audience, largely underserved since the iconic success of Teletubbies and Baby Einsteins.

The animated preschool series comes from creator and series director Jason Jameson and executive producer Keith Chapman, creator of Paw Patrol, Unanico Studios in association with Shanghai Motion Magic, GCI Film, FroG-Land Productions and Spider Eye Studios.

BUDDI features five friends or “Buddis”, called Iso, Cini, Vihi, Puna, and Kelta, each distinctively bright and colourful in their own way. BUDDI emphasizes emotional intelligence and feelings through the imaginative use of music and sound, as the melodies of BUDDI showcase homemade instruments, so that children can play along to their favourite song.

Raydar Media is managing all rights to BUDDI in collaboration with Unanico, Keith Chapman, GCI Film, FroG-Land Productions, Shanghai Motion Magic, and Spider Eye Studios.
