PBS Kids newest animated series LET’S GO LUNA is set to make its debut on November 21, 2018. Emmy Award-winning animator, writer and artist Joe Murray (Rocko’s Modern Life, Camp Lazlo), is behind this new show which will be a multiplatform series that will appear on PBS stations, the 24/7 PBS KIDS channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms.
LET’S GO LUNA! follows the adventures of three friends – Leo, a wombat from Australia; Carmen, a butterfly from Mexico; and Andy, a frog from the U.S. – as they traverse the globe with their parents’ traveling performance troupe, “Circo Fabuloso.” At each of the Circo’s stops, Luna the Moon, voiced by Judy Greer, guides the trio as they get to know the local region and its people. The gang’s adventures take them through cities around the globe – from London to Cairo to Beijing – where they explore the food, music, art, architecture and other features that make each place distinctive. Episodes end with the kids back at the Circo Fabuloso and Luna back in the sky, with a reminder that there’s always more to see, learn and experience in every place they visit.
The storyboard-driven show aims to provide children with an authentic, immersive cultural experience. Each episode includes two 11-minute stories that are developed in consultation with cultural advisers from each region the Circo visits.
Writers will work with storyboard artists to create visually-driven narratives. The music and songs will capture the spirit of each region that is in focus, while interstitials feature traditional folktales associated with each location.
