Bunny Bop!

Launched on February 3, 2011, at Bunnybop.com to coincide with the Chinese New Year of the Rabbit, Bunny Bop! is one of the first series to be produced with financial participation of the Independent Production Fund – Pilot Web Drama Fund.

SynopsisEdit

Bunny Bop! features preschool children in bunny suits depicted barefoot playing in groups or solo, exploring wooden toys, yoga, blocks, etc., while interacting and having fun in a garden-like setting. These very young 'bunnyboppers' reflect the diversity a World Wide Web series must encompass to reach out and represent every viewer.

Each five-minute Bunny Bop! webisode includes a storybook segment, starring 'Buddy Bunny' a bouncy, carrot-loving puppet, as well as his friends 'Posey the Caterpillar' and 'Beep the Butterfly'. All the puppets are designs of Emmy Award winning Karen Valleau, the production designer for both Bunny Bop! and The Big Comfy Couch.

The webseries includes original songs such as "Bunnies Love Bubbles", and a gentle voice-over narration by 'Grandma Bunny' (voiced by Laurel Smyth) with the help of some kids offscreen, to support an intentionally slow pace appropriate for viewers aged under three.
