The beginning

Bobo started 45 years ago as a magazine aimed at children aged from three to seven years old. Over the years the magazine has been published in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, South Africa and Indonesia.

Launch of TV series

In 2011, a new TV series was launched in The Netherlands and Belgium and it has been a remarkable success. Children, parents and teachers instantly took Bobo to their hearts, as did our commercial (licensed) partners.

Cross-media edutainment

Today, Bobo has turned into an innovative and popular cross-media edutainment concept. The brand is being developed successfully through a combination of events, theater, websites, apps, games, books, toys, fashion, food, tourism and personal care products.

In a very entertaining and playful way – with lots of visual jokes, running gags and catchphrases – the television series addresses universal issues and values such as friendship, joy, sadness, jealousy, disappointment, togetherness, and fun.

Story

Bobo TV tells the story of a curious and adventurous blue rabbit, who lives with his sister and mother in a colourful treehouse. Every day, Bobo stumbles into all kinds of unexpected and funny situations. He loves challenging his best friend Tjerk (“Let’s go out and spy on….”) or teasing his sister Krabbel. One of Bobo’s favourite pastimes is annoying his grumpy old neighbour on the other side of the hedge, who is always complaining about the noise Bobo and his friends make.
