Dinosaur Train

Into its 4th Season now, Dinosaur Train was co-produced by Sparky Animation (Singapore) and Jim Henson Company (USA). The first episode premiered on PBS in September 2009. Since then, this series has scored the highest viewership in PBS Kids’ entire history and was also named “Top Kids’ Show” by Hollywood’s renowned, People Magazine. The series was subsequently nominated for multiple Emmy Awards under the category of “Outstanding Children’s Animated Program”.

The story is set in a whimsical but realistic prehistoric world of jungles, swamps, active volcanoes, and oceans teeming with fauna. A shiny steam engine, the Dinosaur Train, runs through these lands and is used by all species of dinosaurs. Circling the globe, crossing oceans and inland seas, it time-travels the Mesozoic Era, the “Age of Dinosaurs”, by using magical Time Tunnels to visit the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods.

In season four, we’ll go for a deeper exploration of Biodiversity. We’ll show how in the Mesozoic Era, just like in our modern Era, each creature has an important place in the ecosystem, from tiny bugs in the ground to the largest predators at the top of the food chain. And when one species disappears, for whatever reason, Mother Nature adapts and readjusts, keeping the delicate balance in the diverse ecosystem.

Dinosaur Train is being broadcasted on PBS (USA), ABC (Australia), TVO (Canada), Nick Jr (Australia, UK), France 5 (France), Channel 11 (Australia), Tooniverse (South Korea), MediaCorp Okto (Singapore), Astro Ceria (Malaysia), Zee Learn (India), Clan TV (Spain), Karusel (Russia) and others.

Siraj, a production by Lammtara Art Production, is a brand that teaches the basics of the Arabic language to children in a fun and engaging way. This edutainment show features 15 episodes, each 15 minutes long and targets pre-schoolers aged from three to five years old. Siraj follows the siblings Rashid and Noura on an exciting journey of discovery, which starts in the National Library of Qatar and sees their grandmother giving them a task to visit her 28 friends, guided by a map. Each of these friends are animals which represent the 28 letters in the Arabic alphabet. The show will focus on the various pillars of language; writing, pronunciation, reading, identifying the letter and objects that start with that letter and recognising the different letter accentuations. A fun, catchy song ends the show and is further supported by the publication of an app which reinforces the episodic letter and enhances the learning programme.
