bulbKIDZ and Lion Forge Animation Studio team up on original 2D animated series about 3 tweenaged best friends and 4 adorable alien babies who must save their town from mad scientists.
Canadian-U.S. children’s entertainment company bulbKIDZ has teamed up with St. Louis-based Lion Forge Animation Studio (Hair Love) to co-develop and produce the original animated comedy, Alien Baby Sitters (26 x 22’). Tapping industry veterans Kaaren Lee Brown (Super Monsters, S.M.A.S.H!, Tarzan and Jane, Roswell Conspiracies: Aliens, Myths & Legends) and Robert N. Skir (GoGoBus & Team S.T.E.A.M., Team S.T.E.A.M. Beyond!, X-Men), the series co-venture is currently in development and planned for Spring 2023.
Aimed at kids 6 to 11, the 2D animated series follows three tweenaged best friends who use their babysitting skills – and the mysterious abilities of four adorable and indestructible alien babies – to protect the small town of Plainview from a group of villainous (and hilarious!) mad scientists.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the incredibly accomplished Lion Forge team on this comical, yet extremely relevant, premise,” shared bulbKIDZ co-founder and EVP content strategy & global sales, Nancy Koff. “The opportunity to play off today's worldly news on UFOs, and play up related urban myths into the narrative, enhances our ability to think outside the toybox while recognizing that friends come in all shapes, sizes and species.”
“Alien Baby Sitters is a hilarious mashup of Rugrats meets Powerpuff Girls, with a hint of Dexter's Laboratory,” explained bulbKIDZ co-founder and EVP creative development and global operations, Kiersten Halstead. “We’re taking the global appeal of these classic successes that lacked representation during their heyday and making our original series relevant to today’s landscape. What better way to achieve this than to work with the trailblazing, award-winning Lion Forge.”
“At the heart of our multicultural cast of characters, Alien Baby Sitters proves that entertainment can be found amongst binkies, bottles, and things that go boom!” added Brown.
