Tiger Aspect launches its new show - Tinga Tinga Tales - on Cbeebies from today (February 1st).

The animated series - which has been inspired by traditional African animal folk tales and the art of Tanzania - Tinga Tinga Tales is aimed at three to six year olds and is produced on location in Kenya.

Each film tells the fantastical story of how a particular animal came to be, although the 'Big Six' form the heart of the community - Monkey, Tortoise, Elephant, Hippo, Tickbird and Lion.

"When Claudia Lloyd [Tiger Aspect] first approached me with the idea for Tinga Tinga Tales, I knew it would be perfect for Cbeebies," said controller Michael Carrington. "The series is a unique, beautiful production capturing a flavour of Africa and some extraordinarily tall tales."
