RTjr Announces Two Brand New Pre-School Animation Series
29 Jun 2018 : Nathan Griffin
RT has confirmed that two new original Irish pre-school animation series will premiere on RTjr next Monday.

‘Mya Go’ is a first-time dip into pre-school animation for Dublin-based Piranha Bar. The series, totalling 104 episodes, is devised and directed by Irish director Alan Foley and co-produced with Spanish studio, Motion Pictures Entertainment.

‘Mya Go’ lives in the bustling town of Everyday with her family – Mama Go, Dada Go, little brother Sammy Go and their bouncy pet Doggy Go. ‘Mya Go’ is always on the go as she discovers the world around her with enthusiasm, wonder and giggles. With her fearless sense of adventure and go-get-it attitude, ‘Mya Go’ embraces any task at hand and with the help of her friends, she is always ready for fun.

And popular pre-school animation series ‘The Day Henry Met’ will kick off its third season with a whole raft of new adventures for lovable four- year-old Henry. ‘The Day Henry Met’ is produced by Dublin studio Wiggleywoo and directed by Gilly. It’s all action for him this summer as he meets everything from a surfboard to a BMX bike, an elephant to a cactus plant. Random - but always fun with Henry!  

Pauline Macnamara, Executive Producer at RTÉ’s Young Peoples Programmes said:

“It’s a thrill to have a gigantic splash of beautiful colour in both Mya Go and The Day Henry Met on RTÉjr this summer. In their individual ways, both Mya and Henry encapsulate everything that’s exciting about being a small child! Congratulations to their wonderful producers – Irish animation just goes from strength to strength.”

‘The Day Henry Met’ will air Monday to Friday at 08.10 and is repeated at 14.45 from Monday 2nd July on RTÉjr.

‘Mya Go’ will air Monday to Friday at 07.40 and is repeated at 11.30 from Monday 2nd July on RTÉjr.
