The popular kids TV series Fleabag Monkeyface is making a return. Originally commissioned in 2010 by CITV and is co-produced by Sparky Animation Pte. Ltd, Impossible Kids, Walker Productions and Editude Pictures Pte. Ltd.

The original concept was created by Knife & Packer, one of the UK’s most successful children’s comedy writing teams. Their books, The Disgusting Adventures of Fleabag Monkeyface, seemed the perfect premise for an animated series to be based upon. It was at this point that the above production partners had a meeting of minds to develop the series.

With Knife & Packer remaining very much involved throughout production, one of the first steps was for Sparky Animation, the successful Singapore based 3D animation studio, to create an animated pilot test for the series. Impossible Kids (part of the Impossible Pictures Group); along with the other production partners simply loved it. CITV then commissioned the series for 52 episodes with a running time of 11 minutes to start broadcasting mid December 2011.

Ratings so far have proved Fleabag Monkeyface to be a hit with its target age range (7-12 years) as well as both younger & older audiences! The production is currently on-going with a brand new batch of episodes due for broadcast in early April on CITV as well as ITV1 & ITV1HD.

You can see the trailer for the new series below.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
