Gruppo Alcuni Bringing ‘Mini Pet Pals’ to MIPTV

New 2D-animated series directed by Sergio Manfio is a prequel to the hit preschool series ‘Pet Pals’ already distributed in 137 countries worldwide.

TREVISO, ITALY -- This year Italian production company Gruppo Alcuni is bringing an exciting new cartoon series dedicated to the preschool public to MIPTV. Mini Pet Pals, a six-minute, 52-episode series created by Gruppo Alcuni and co-produced with RaiFiction and directed by Sergio Manfio, is digitally animated in 2D.

The prequel of the Pet Pals brings the adventures of six characters to the stage. Top Hat still has braces on his teeth, Nameless the chick has just hatched, Pio the frog still has the tail of a tadpole and even Holly the cat, Moby the dog and Diva the duck are still so small and helpless.

The episodes of the series deal with the emotions and the daily discoveries of young children: joy, friendship, sadness, jealousy, fear, envy. It also focuses on the inventiveness and whims of children, who are well represented by the 6 characters.  Each episode takes place in a playground and ends in a lesson; the indispensable adult figure is represented by a wise tree that intervenes at the beginning and end of each episode and each time the Mini Pet Pals need help or advice.

The series offers a lot of fun and tenderness that will cheer and captivate the young children thanks to the careful choice of music and songs. There are six different theme songs at the beginning of each episode, each with a different riddle, that the young viewers must solve.
