One of the leading kids’ entertainment companies, CAKE, has announced its partnership with the Bureau of Magic (BoM), an award-winning production studio, to produce the 2D animated comedy series Dog Bird & Me.
The animated series is based on the picture book series created by Bureau of Magic co-founder Abram Makowka. Dog Bird & Me has been developed and will be produced by Bureau of Magic and the newly-formed CAKE Productions. The series is a package of 52×11-minute episodes.
Bureau of Magic co-founder Abram Makowka said, “Dog Bird & Me began as drawings for my son and his preschool class. Developing this personal project with CAKE has been a gift. We can’t wait for the world to see what we’ve been working on!”
The new series focuses on children of the age group of four to seven years. It will provide a fun family co-viewing experience, which celebrates curiosity, playfulness, and empathy through simple, fun, and relatable stories told from a child’s perspective.
CAKE CEO Ed Galton said, “Over the last year, we have been working with the Bureau of Magic on the development of Dog Bird & Me. We hope the result is a uniquely uplifting and entertaining show that encourages positivity and acceptance through fun stories dedicated to the kid in all of us!”
Here’s the official synopsis of Dog Bird & Me:
Dog Bird & Me tells the story of six-year-old Avery, a big-hearted kid, with even bigger ideas, and his curious sister Dog Bird, who looks like a bird on the outside, but on the inside, she is a dog. They live with their parents, great-grandma, and friends in Family Forest – a warm, wonder-filled, and welcoming alpine family camp community, where humans and animals are equals and everyone is delightfully different. Together, they go on play ventures, discovering answers to their big questions, bringing their big ideas to life, and learning about themselves and others along the way. Dog Bird & Me is about understanding and acceptance — What’s on the inside is what matters most.
