Mojo Swoptops (52 x 11 mins), the new CG-animated comedy action preschool series from Blue Zoo Animation Studios (The Adventures of Paddington, Numberblocks) and Tararaboom is coming to CBeebies this Autumn.

Based on the Ladybird book series by Cindy Black and Rich Ward, Mojo Swoptops follows the everyday adventures of a little truck that swops its top! Together with Mojo’s best friend Bo, a mechanic, they help solve the problems of the friendly inhabitants of Swoppiton.

The show has been presold into 8 major territories and a second series is already in the planning stages. The new series has been commissioned by CBeebies.

Production will be taking place at Blue Zoo Animation Studio in the UK and Kazoo, the newly established animation studio in Lille, France. Kazoo is a collaborative venture between Blue Zoo Animation Studio and Samka Productions, combining the creative expertise and resources of both studios. Mojo Swoptops marks the first project to be undertaken at Kazoo.

Mojo Swoptops will be directed by Dominic Minns ( Supertato) and Olly Brown.

Dominic Minns said, “I’m thrilled to be involved in bringing Mojo Swoptops to audiences around the world. It’s been such a joy to work on this special series, filled with humour, action, and problem-solving. Mojo is a little truck with a big heart who solves problems by switching out its tops for new skills and abilities. I think kids are going to love going along for the ride with Mojo and friends. We’ve assembled a fantastic crew and we are really proud of what we have created. I can’t wait for families to meet Mojo when the show launches later this year.”

Kate Morton, Head of Commissioning and Acquisitions 0 – 6, said “We are delighted to premiere Mojo Swoptops on Cbeebies this autumn and look forward to our young audience falling in love with Mojo and best friend Bo as they help their local community. Mojo Swoptops is a fantastic example of a British property that appeals to a truly international audience.”
