When families sit down with their kids to watch their favourite cartoons this weekend, they’re in for a big surprise. From January 8, Cartoon Network viewers around Asia will be able to enjoy a completely reenergised channel experience called “Redraw Your World.”
Not only are the look and feel refreshed with vibrant colours, music and design, but also awesome new shows are designed to appeal to an even wider audience of boys and girls.
Through exciting storylines and colourful characters on Cartoon Network (Astro Ch 615 HD), “Redraw Your World” encourages kids to always be true to themselves and to be confident in their abilities to impact real change in both big and small ways.
Kicking things off on Saturday, January 8, 10.30am, is the premiere of two episodes of the Cartoon Network original series We Baby Bears. The series is a perfect match for the channel’s new positioning and tells the story of three bears looking for a place to fit in. The cartoon features the just-released original K-pop song “The Bha Bha Song (We Baby Bears Theme)” performed by supergroup, TRI.BE.
Kids and families can also look forward to an on-ground activity at Sunway Pyramid in February that celebrates Cartoon Network’s Redraw Your World with awesome pop-up doodle stations and a video series called “Craft Your World” powered by Crayola, the campaign’s official “Creativity Partner”. Armed with inspiration and the right tools for creativity, kids are invited to express themselves and let their imagination run free by drawing or doodling their vision of the world they want to live in. Keep an eye on Cartoon Network Asia and Crayola websites and social media channels for more information on what to expect as the date draws near!
