Koala City™ creates using organic, raw, natural, and sustainable sources using characters and themes from our exciting new animated children's television series, Koala City™ (premiering in 2024) as the foundation for our designs and products. Koala City™ also pays fair wages and provides great working conditions for all of our employees. Our inaugural plush line will include a koala bear named Syd (our fearless leader), a leopard tortoise named Leo, a beaver named Bev, and a woolly monkey named Caio.
Koala City™ is working with Broadvision and Studio 56, which includes 250+ animators, to create a world-class 3D children's animated television series that is colorful and fun as well as emotional and educational. The show centers around a group of 4th grade "Wilds" (as they are called in Koala City™) who all get jobs at the local zoo. In the world of Koala City™, humans and "Wilds" only interact at the zoo, where the "Wilds" are hired as performers for the humans - they even have a union, ZAG (Zoo Actor's Guild).
Syd City, a koala bear, is the leader of her friend group and is always lending her assistance and advice to anyone in need. Her very best friend is Caio, who is a monkey who is deaf. Syd encourages everyone to learn sign language so that Caio can communicate better with their friends. Syd is also the host of her own ZoosTube Show where she likes to report the news of the day. Bev is a beaver who loves to cook but somehow manages to turn everything into pizza. And Leo is a tortoise with 67 sisters - who is really into science and would like to one day be the first tortoise to soar to the moon.
Koala City™ was created by Jailyn Osborne, who came up with the characters, concept, initial drawings, and wrote all of the episodes in Season 1. Jailyn also wrote all of the songs with the extremely talented composer, Francis Snyder. The show itself was recorded by a diverse group of professional voice actors, and some veteran Broadway stars, from all over the country. The music in Koala City™ was recorded live at Hear No Evil Studios in Orange County, CA with an 11-piece, New Orleans style band. Koala City™ is set to have 24 episodes in season 1, and season 2 should be similar. Koala City™ is filled with broadway style musical numbers that is sure to have adults and little ones alike singing and dancing and playing the songs over and over. The songs are adaptable to many life situations - for example in Episode 1, the four friends sing and dance to the song, "That's What Friends Are For" and will become a staple for children.
Koala City™ is being produced by To Be Heard Productions. To Be Heard Productions is a sister company to Koala City Entertainment™ - owned and operated by award winning director, writer, and choreographer Jailyn Osborne and Gina Hudgens (mother of actress Vanessa Hudgens). Jailyn and Gina (better known as Mama G) have been producing film, television, commercials, and music videos together for many years. Koala City™ will mark the first animated series for To Be Heard Productions (named in the belief that everyone deserves To Be Heard). In addition to Jailyn and Mama G, Emmy Award Winning Producer Gabriela Sosa and Tammy Fowler are also Producers on the series.
Koala City™ is currently working with some very scientific companies to create toys that can literally be put back into the earth when children are done with them. In addition to these toys, Koala City™ plans on making books and games using vegetable dye and other organic and sustainable materials. Koala City™ will also be creating certified organic cotton clothing and sustainable, fun gifts for both children and adults. Koala City Entertainment™ has magnificent plans to expand the brand by developing an interactive app as well as character off-shoots like a life-size puppet of Bev in a live action, vegetarian cooking show starring children as the chefs - animated science explorations with Leo - and sign language lessons and geography learning with Syd and Caio.
If you choose anything Koala City™, you can bet that it will be sourced and created in a human conscious, animal conscious, and planet conscious way. Koala City™ strives to be free of chemicals, plastics, and unnecessary waste. You can also be certain that anything Koala City™ will promote kindness, imagination, friendship, family, diversity, peace, inclusion, creativity, color, fun, positivity, and hope :)
