“I am delighted to share Let’s Go, Bananas! with kids and families around the world. Each episode stars three sweet, silly, diverse families sharing each other’s lives, loves, triumphs, and tantrums in relatable tales told by their five funny and fabulous kids. It’s a madcap, heartfelt take on family life.” ~ Karen Fowler, Vice President, Development and Production, 9 Story Media Group 

Let’s Go, Bananas! was created by award-winning writer and producer Tim Bain, creator of action-comedy series Kangaroo Beach and writer on hit children’s series including Bluey, PJ MasksThomas the Tank Engine and Aardman’s Epic Adventures of Morph. The series is inspired by Tim’s own family and features a community of three sweet and silly animal families, the Bananas (gorillas), Crockers (crocodiles) and Tiger-Zelles (tigers and gazelles). The series is also written by Tim and directed by Brown Bag Films’ own Matt Mitchell (Let’s Go LunaRosie’s Rules). 

“As a father of three bouncing kids it’s a joy to turn funny everyday stories from my home life into an animated comedy series. And as a writer, it’s delightful to find fresh stories to tell with diverse families we don’t often see on screen. The show is stuffed full of the ridiculous nuances of family life, like sibling rivalry, zany toddlers, nutty pets, chaotic road trips and those kid song earworms that get stuck in your head all day. I hope all sorts of families across the world will relate to the silly shenanigans of our completely bananas characters!” ~ Tim Bain, Writer/Creator, Let’s Go, Bananas!
