Australian smash hit Hi-5 is launching on pre-school channel Cartoonito on Monday November 3rd, complete with a new UK cast.
The show launched in Australia 11 years ago and has gone on to enjoy worldwide acclaim. It now airs in 118 countries with a global audience reach of over five million people, plus over two million tickets have been sold to Hi-5 concerts.
It is aimed at a wide range of children and focuses on learning through play, music and dance. Each week in five half hour shows, Hi-5 will focus on different themes, each centred around a specific area of learning: music, pretend, friends, animals, family, colours, senses and feelings.
Cecilia Persson, VP of programming, acquisitions and presentation, Turner Kids Channels, said: "We are thrilled to be introducing this brand new British version of the phenomenal Hi-5 to Cartoonito, enabling us to offer viewers more sensational adventures and learning fun.
"We are committed to entertaining, educating and encouraging active lifestyles amongst young children and their families, and are delighted to launch the new UK Hi-5 cast on Cartoonito."
