Rookie Robot is now airing on British Columbia’s Knowledge Network, Daekyo Kids TV, Daekyo Baby TV and streaming on! The success story continues, as the adorable automaton is also featured at the Kikeriki – Children’s Short Film Festival and will be receiving a second season.

Not only does the non-linguistic content of the 4K animated kids series make it easy for kids of all cultures to enjoy Rookie’s antics and lessons, the short length of the episodes is also valuable when building linear schedules and streaming portfolios.  That is why Knowledge Kids, a platform for quality, commercial free Edutainment has adopted Season 1 in their catalog.


“We’re delighted to have these charming and funny non-dialogue shorts in our Knowledge Kids linear and on-demand offering,” said Michele Paris, Senior Manager of Children’s Programming. “Rookie Robot is a fun and optimist character whose curiosity can inspire kids to go out and explore their own world.”


Rookie Robot Season 1 is now streaming on and aired on Knowledge Network, one year after Korean broadcasters Daekyo Kids TV & Daekyo Baby TV also selected Rookie Robot for their program, now letting Rookie discover and learn on screens around the globe.


The brave bot is also featured at Kikeriki – A Children’s Short Film Festival in Tulln, Austria among 50 other short films from 20 countries. Kids and their families can experience the show on the silver screen from May 12th to June 2nd


After the success of its first season, we are proud to announce that Season 2 of Rookie Robot is now officially in pre-production – Stay tuned for more adventures of our colorful companion and his friends and meet the creators at ANNECY Festival 2022 MIFA Market from June 13th to June 18th, 2022.

About Rookie Robot (26 x 3’)


Robots also have to learn! And our little robot named Rookie likes nothing more than that. Curious, open and friendly he explores his world and meets new friends, discovers new things and experiences little adventures in each episode. Whether mouse, moon, magic or music: the simple and charming stories entertain with wit and joie de vivre – and a cheeky twist. Rookie's encounters focus on friendliness, openness and empathy, but also perseverance, respect and patience – and with each episode Rookie gets to know his world a little better.
