Dylan’s Playtime Adventures Now Airing on CBC Kids in Canada

Dylan’s on his way – are you ready to play? 

We are thrilled to share that Dylan’s Playtime Adventures, our new preschool series premieres today, Monday, April 1, in Canada on CBC Kids!  

Produced by 9 Story Media Group and animated by our award-winning studio Brown Bag Films in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery and CBC Kids, Dylan’s Playtime Adventures (52 x 11min) is based on the Scholastic book series by bestselling illustrator/author Guy Parker-Rees. The CG animated interactive comedy follows Dylan, a stripey dog who lives in a stripey lighthouse in Buttercup Meadow. In every episode, Dylan takes on a new career – Doctor, Pizza Chef, Hair Stylist, Sea Captain – and invites his friends Ozzy, Daisy, Bitsy, and the viewers at home to play along with him. Ready with a regular household object, his trusty wagon, and his signature imagination, Dylan and his glowing stripes transform the meadow into anything from a hotel to a space station! With just a few regular household objects, his trusty wagon, his signature imagination and some great friends, Dylan transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, jumping feet first into every adventure that comes his way. Fueled by creativity, Dylan models best of play and improv leading to wildly original escapades that empower and encourage kids to trust their hearts, imaginations and each other. 

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures was developed in house by 9 Story’s development leads working out of Toronto and Dublin, who poured their heart and soul into producing this wildly imaginative show for young viewers.  

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures was also animated by 9 Story’s award-winning studio Brown Bag Films and is the first 2D/3D-hybrid series to be produced across the studio’s Toronto and Bali locations. From the extraordinary and whimsical storytelling to the vibrant animation, every detail of this series has been carefully curated to tickle the hearts and inspire the minds of children everywhere. 

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures premieres today, Monday, April 1, at 9am EST on the CBC Kids national TV block, with new episodes rolling out every Monday and Wednesday. The first episode features two 11-minute storylines, including ‘Dylan the Firefighter’ where Dylan must come up with a creative solution to help ‘unstick’ his fellow firefighter friends, and ‘Dylan the Pizza Delivery Pup’ where Dylan discovers that all his shortcuts seem to transform into cheesy delivery adventures! 

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures will also premiere on CBC’s digital video streaming service, CBC Gem, on Friday, April 5, with two episodes dropping every Friday. The series will also make its YouTube debut in Canada this Summer on the CBC Kids YouTube channel.

We can’t wait for kids and families across Canada to embark on this incredible journey into the whimsical and wonderful world of Dylan’s Playtime Adventures, airing now on CBC Kids and streaming April 5 on CBC Gem.  

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures will also be jumping onto screens across the UK, this Autumn, on CBeebies and CBBC and set to launch in the near future on Cartoonito in the US.
