MIPJunior 2019 Best Pitch winner Who Who (formerly Little Who Who) is an animated preschool series about exploring the world, diversities and social-emotional challenges through the eyes of a little owl called Who Who. Who Who is a curious 5 year-old owl who loves to play and have fun discovering about the world and meeting new people. He lives above the clock tower at Tiny Hill station at the heart of Big Forest with his mum, Mother Who, the station chief.
Each episode someone new alights at the station to await their next train. No matter who it is or where they’re from, Who Who and friends welcome them into Tiny Hill with open arms, before involving them in an adventure where someone’s problem needs fixing or there’s a puzzle to solve. They love meeting the new people that roll in and out of the village as each time they learn something new about them and the world outside, making their own world that little bit bigger.
The show revels in debunking stereotypes, while facing the common social-emotional problems and puzzles. The scripts go the extra mile in addressing the less explored notions of cultural and gender diversity and opening up a world of possibilities.
Produced in Croatia by Recircle (Nutz, Tree & Bee), Who Who has been commissioned by Croation public broadcaster HRT. Simon Rolph (Wussywat the Clumsy Cat) is co-creator and head writer on the series. The project was supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC), the city of Zagreb, and the MEDIA Sub-programme of Creative Europe.
