Silver Spoon Blues, the popular Turkish animated series Limon and Oli from Mart Licensing Agency and the Spanish variety series Menuda Noche from Grupo ZZJ.
These new additions will add to batteryPOP’s existing kid-friendly programming for children ages six to eleven, ranging from cartoons and live-action shows to exclusive interviews and events covering top trending celebrities and topics for kids. The youth network continues to emphasize the inclusion of international content, creating an entertaining, yet educational experience for its viewers.
ANTS is an animated cartoon series, based on the artwork of Fabio Bettori, dealing with the lives of ants outside the conventional “ant farm.”
Consisting of short, funny episodes—filled with gags and graphic “cues”—this series is lively and light in content, yet full of references to our daily lives… because the ANTS…are in fact US!
Inquisitive, intelligent and adventurous—This is Daniel Cook is more than just a live-action children’s series, it’s an educational adventure where kids can join six-year-old host Daniel Cook on all of his exciting adventures, whether he is learning with Olympic gold medalists and zookeepers, or creating with award-winning musicians. Kids will learn, create and explore with Daniel—a kid himself, who shares their interests, language and curiosity.
Professor Ambrosius is the friendly and clumsy host for this show that mixes educational entertainment with comedy in The Amazing Professor Ambrosius. He lives with his two assistants, Leslie and Floribela, in a magic place where everything can happen. Learning has never been so fun!
Limon and Oli is Turkey’s most popular and lovable licensed cartoon series created by famous Turkish cartoonist Salih Memecan in 1991. Salih Memecan’s 22 year-old Limon and Oli is a typical family everyone associates with. A little sense of humor spices up the mundane daily life of Limon and Oli, just like every other family. When times get tough, bring the humor and laugh it away. Limon and Oli is all about that!
TAG! is a scripted drama series portraying the life of primary school students in an American International School outside the U.S. New episodes will be released on batteryPOP on a weekly basis.
What would happen if small children took control of the television for several hours? Who would they interview, what would they discuss, who would sing?
Menuda Noche (Children’s Night Show) is a children’s show of the caliber of adults that is a parody of television perpetuated by the most shameless and uninhibited in each household. Children’s Night Show waits for us! Featuring candid interviews, face-to-face encounters with a host of exceptionally impressive kids, performances by remarkable youth talent and zany slapstick humor, the show is certain to be a favorite for parents and kids alike.
