On each stop, brother and sister bunnies, Bop and Boo, discover different animals, creating new games to help build friendships. Brave Bunnies emphasizes diversity, encouraging young viewers to accept differences, no matter how big or small.

“We consider the Brave Bunnies to be a huge breakthrough for the Ukrainian animation world,” commented Glowberry head of brand management, Marine Vardanyan. “And we feel proud about gathering an international team for the production of the series to be distributed worldwide by our new partner Aardman.”

Brave Bunnies looks like nothing else on our slate, and when Glowberry first pitched it to us at MIPCOM we could instantly see the series appealing to audiences all over the world,” added Aardman head of sales and acquisitions, Alison Taylor. “We are very excited to be working with the teams at Glowberry and Anima, and to be showing Brave Bunnies to our clients for the first time at the Kidscreen Summit.”

Aardman and Glowberry will be presenting an episode of Brave Bunnies at the Kidscreen Summit in Miami. Having secured Spin Master as a licensee, the team is seeking strategic partnerships with broadcasters, digital platforms, distributors, CP licensees and licensing agents.
