The series will start airing on Channel 5 (Paramount) Milkshake in the UK! on November 12, 2022. This will be followed by a global rollout capturing the imagination of children around the world. Pop Paper City is distributed by UK animation powerhouse Aardman Animations, the studio behind such legendary animated IPs as Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Chicken Run, and more.

Pop Paper City is the capital of an exciting paper world. Plom, Phoebe, Mae-Mae, Hooper, Zip, and Fly are a group of unique paper friends who live in Pop Paper City. As they adventure, they find new ways to have fun together, like cowboy adventures, pirate treasure hunts, and even space exploration! When the friends need to craft an item, they call on Helping Hand, who helps them craft something they can use on their adventures. Through beautiful paper crafts and endless exciting adventures, friends learn, grow and encourage the little ones at home to become DIYers too!

At its heart, Pop Paper City is about inspiring kids to be creative. The visual style of the series uses paper textures to create a truly immersive paper world for the characters to explore. Everything seen in this world was designed so that it could be built at home using items that might be in the viewer’s home.

Pop Paper City’s story world keeps expanding, making the opportunities for adventure truly limitless. Throughout the series, characters explore an array of stunning locations, including beautiful beaches, vast forests, mystical underwater environments, and even other planets. The unique blend of exciting adventures and crafts is meant to inspire kids to build their own beautiful paper crafts at home.

Pop Paper City’s unique visual style was created using the Maxon One family of products, including Cinema 4D, Redshift, and Red Giant. The Pop Paper City team had a great working partnership with Maxon throughout the production of the series, with Maxon providing regular technical support and advice.

The series also features a talented voice cast. Actor, writer and comedian Nick Mohammed (Ted Lasso, Intelligence, Christopher Robin) voices adult tutor Helping Hand, while Eden Gough (10), Sadie Sweet (10), Rohan Boucher (6), Hannah Silverman ( 8), and Taran Beyer (6) voice Paper Friends.
