The new episodes maintain the characteristic and unique visual language the series is known for. Pocoyo remains loyal to his values of respect, tolerance and friendship.

The episodes reveal a wide variety of stories aimed at kids from 0 to 6, following Zinkia’s plan to increase the core target.

A new female character and more adventures

The new Pocoyo episodes will still speak the show’s well-loved visual language, where colors, shapes and music build a unique world.

The show also continues to focus on core values such as respect, tolerance and friendship. In addition to the character’s educational spirit and curious nature, this new season cranks up the adventure and puts the whole group center stage.

The main innovation is the introduction of a new female character who will be joining Elly, Pato, Loula, Pulpo, Pajaroto, Pajarito and Valentina, and will be sharing the limelight with Pocoyo.

A 14-month production process and a team of 50 professionals

Over 50 professionals, almost half of which are women, are working on the 26 episodes in the new season. 3D artists, animators, programmers and producers are just some of the profiles taking part in this project, who have worked closely with US writers with a strong background in kids animation.

The complex production, built on Maya with the Arnold rendering engine and developed using original tools programmed at Zinkia, kicked off in February and will be completed in April 2017. Each episode is in production for approximately four months.

Originally created as a TV show, Pocoyo celebrated its 10th anniversary  and has positioned itself as Spain’s most successful entertainment brand across the world. The fourth run of episodes launches after three hit seasons consisting of 52 x 7 minute episodes and “Pocoyo y El Circo Espacial,” a 25-minute short film.
