Kazoops – a new animated series coming to CBeebies

One of the perks of blogging is that my boys get very spoilt with being invited to special events. Over the weekend, we headed into London to see a very special screening of Kazoops a new animated series that is soon to be aired on CBeebies.

Kazoops follows the adventures of a 6-year-old boy called Monty and his best friend Jimmy Jones the family pet pig.

Together they challenge preconceptions about life and they show us that it’s ok to question the world around us and encourage children to see things differently.

On arrival to the event, we had our photo taken with Monty and Jimmy Jones before being led into a room with some activities for the children.

Mr H and I were very grateful for the various breakfast sandwiches and pastries available as well as some much-needed tea and coffee (it was an early start to the weekend for us!)


Whilst we were stuffing our faces the boys got stuck in with colouring and even attempted to create their own version of Jimmy Jones from plasticine.


E had fun matching odd socks and but before we knew it, it was time to grab some popcorn and settle down to watch three episodes of the show.

The boys were engrossed from start to finish and when I asked them what they really enjoyed about the show they said they liked Jimmy Jones!


I was impressed with the animation which was bright and colourful – perfect for capturing children’s attention. Each episode has a “just imagine…” section in the format of a catchy song and there were lots of funny moments too which made me laugh out loud.

E has already asked me if it’s on TV yet so I think Kazoops is onto a winner!

The first episode of Kazoops will be on CBeebies at 4.20pm on Monday 20th June – be sure to tune in!

*We were invited to a VIP screening of Kazoops and reimbursed for travel in exchange for this post

  18. Oh bless, they look like they really enjoyed it! And I love the piggie cakes!
    My little one is only 6 months old at the moment so I am trying to put off kids tv for as long as possible, ha ha.

  21. Squirmy Popple

    Looks like a fun event! I don’t let me daughter watch too much TV because she’s only one, but a few minutes of a decent kid’s show can buy me a few moments of silence! #KCACOLS

  22. I can imagine how fun the event must be!


  23. sounds like a fab event and made even better by breaky sarnies for you hehe! #KCACOLS

  24. My daughter is going through an obsession with pigs at the moment and I don’t just mean peppa pig. So I’m sure she’d love kazoops (awesome word to say too!) Event looks like it was great fun!

  25. Wow, what a brilliant event to go to. Your kids will be the envy of their friends having been to see it before its ‘live’. Love the piggy cakes too. It sounds like a good idea for a kids tv programme where they can question things, but being fun with a pig friend to. I wonder if the kids in my class at school will mention it after it comes on?

We’ve seen the ads for the Kazoops on CBeebies and my little one asks each time when it comes on whether she can watch it so we’re really excited about finally getting to watch it this week. Great review, sounds like a great new addition to CBeebies! Emily #KCACOLS

    It looks and sounds like you all had great fun. Its always nice to be greeted with good food on an early start! I look forward to seeing the new series, I’m sure my eldest will love it!


  41. Sounds great! The only thing Arthur really watches on CBEebies is Mr Tumble – he absolutely loves it! I don’t mind it as I think it is educational for him in terms of language skills incorporating signing and also gives an understanding about the different needs of different children. Will try this out and see what he thinks – although I suspect I’ll still be asked for mr ‘mamble’ instead lol! #KCACOLS

  42. Mummy here and there
