Apple TV+ has placed a series order for "Sago Mini Friends," a new preschool animated series that will join its existing lineup of content for children and families.
"Sago Mini Friends" is described as an "adorable nod to gratitude," and is based on the award-winning app of the same name. The series will feature characters like Harvey the floppy-eared dog, Jinja the cat, Jack the rabbit, and Robin the bird.
"Along with a unique cast of residents as colorful as their own whimsical world, the four friends play, explore, imagine and celebrate daily in their joyful town of Sagoville," Apple writes. "In each episode, Harvey and all his friends express their true thankfulness for all things, big and small, through optimism, kindness, preschool-friendly humor and unforgettable original songs!"
The Sago Mini World app, which the show is based on, features more than 40 games for kids aged two to five years old. It has been recognized by a number of awards, including the Parents' Choice Gold awards, the Webby Awards, the Academics' Choice awards, and the Kidscreen awards.
