Miditech to repackage ‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’

‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’, the popular kids show co-produced by Miditech and Sesame Workshop, will be repackaged with exciting new muppet characters. The second season is set to roll out later in February after an advanced workshop on muppeteering conducted by Marty Robinson, and a writers’ workshop conducted by Annie Evan of Sesame Workshop with Miditech’s production team.

‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’ will be produced in an international magazine format muppet show for pre-schoolers. Boombah, Chamki, Googly and Aanchoo will have new friends joining in to entertain nearly 157 million children under the age of six. The programme features cross-genre content infused with basic childhood matters and is seen from children’s point of view.

Launched in August 2006 on Cartoon Network, ‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’ will now offer a major value addition to its dedicated viewers with a refreshed star cast of muppets.

Muppeteering is a scientific creation of characters, but more importantly a difficult art to perform as it must match the role of its scripted characters in the show. The art of muppeteering in ‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’ has been seen, felt and admired, and has moved the hearts of many young viewers.

Marty Robinson, said, “Through their experience, the muppeteers have mastered their individual physical technique and performance. In the workshop, we have further developed the relationships between the characters to help work as one team. They are strong characters with great comic potential and exciting additions to the Galli.”

Annie Evans has been working with the scriptwriters’ team to create new storylines and to introduce muppet characters. She said, “The new members of the Sim Sim family will add colour and energy to the Galli. These muppets have great potential for physical comedy, which is a great way for children to watch and learn.”
