Pablo, the acclaimed kid’s TV show and brainchild of Co. Down-based production company, Paper Owl Films, will return to screens for a second series this month.
The 2D animated show is centred around the adventures of Pablo – a fun, smart and curious five-year-old boy with autism. It first aired in 2017, positively disrupting children’s television when it became the first ever series to feature an all-autistic cast. Now a firm family-favourite having amassed viewers globally, Pablo has been recommissioned by RTÉ and BBC and will return to the broadcaster’s kid-focused channels RTÉjr and CBeebies from October 7.
While its colourful animations and exciting storylines have won Pablo popularity with broadcasters and families alike, Pablo is also recognised as an inspirational communicator for parents and children to develop their understanding of the autism spectrum.
Pablo is produced by Paper Owl Films for CBeebies and RTÉJr., in association with Kavaleer Productions and Ingenious with funding from Northern Ireland Screen and BAI.
Pablo will air each weekday on RTÉJr at 6:00pm and 12:00pm at the weekends whilst CBeebies will air in the afternoon at 2:35pm every day. Viewers can watch on-demand through BBC Player and RTE Player.
