The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11) is an animated, upper-preschool, television series celebrating unusual friendships, curiosity, and appreciating the differences in all of us. The series stars two cute and kooky cats – the carefree, adventurous, and happy-go-lucky moon along with the practical, straight-laced, by-the-book Ollie – who have a knack for spinning everyday preschool life into zany globetrotting adventures.
The television series is based on the best-selling Ollie & Moon books created by author and illustrator Diane Kredensor. Kredensor, who serves as creative producer for The Ollie & Moon Show, is an Emmy Award-winning artist, director and producer whose credits include “Pinky and the Brain” and “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” among others. The show was developed in collaboration with Kredensor by Robert Vargas (Wonderpets, Henry Hugglemonster), and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake).
The Ollie & Moon Show is produced by Cottonwood Media and distributed by sister company Federation Kids & Family.
