Award-winning Ragdoll Productions announce new animated pre-school programme B.O.T. and the BEASTIES

A new series of silliness, play and invention in 2D animation.

B.O.T. and the BEASTIES is the latest series from award-winning children’s television producers, Ragdoll Productions, which launches in the UK on CBeebies in early 2021.

This new animated series of 50 x 5mins episodes for CBeebies introduces pre-schoolers to the trials and tribulations of a loveable robot called B.O.T. (Beastie Observation Transmitter) as he discovers new worlds and all manner of new BEASTIES that inhabit them. B.O.T. must collect data on the comically unpredictable BEASTIES – the mission is never easy, but always very funny!

The series launches with a host of bizarre BEASTIES from five different worlds and each episode offers wonderful storytelling as B.O.T. goes on a hilarious BEASTIE journey of discovery.

Ragdoll’s creative team have been able to develop some young animators who have been given their first professional opportunity creating this innovative new series.

Ragdoll’s Founder and Creative Director Anne Wood said, “B.O.T. and the BEASTIES has been developed with a commitment to watching how children interact and develop and as B.O.T. journeys to the different worlds, children will develop counting, sorting and categorising skills as well as first steps in storytelling.”
