Milo is an animated series for preschool audiences with a bright, colourful look that brings a very contemporary graphic style to young children. Accompanied by his good friends Lofty and Lark, Milo uses role play to explore the wonderful world of vocations – from doctors and mechanics, to hairdressers, chefs and postal workers, introducing preschoolers to a variety of professions in a positive, fun way. The series’ underlying message is that all jobs are incredible. Milo won the 2022 Best Children’s series at the prestigious British Animation Awards, and Bronze at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards.
The preschool television series is produced by Fourth Wall and DeAPlaneta Entertainment. The production was supported by the British Government’s Youth Content Fund, which is managed by the BFI and supports the creation of distinctive and quality content for young audiences. DeAPlaneta Entertainment owns and manages worldwide consumer products rights for the series.
