Delighted to show the result of 6-months work here at Beakus.. Our much anticipated animated series 'Numtums' began airing on CBeebies on 27th February 2012, twice a day at 9am and 1pm, as part of the 'Love To Learn' cluster of shows.
The animation was produced and directed at Beakus by Steve Smith, designed by Matthias Hoegg, and created in an unusual technique developed by Sylvain Magne that combines 3D and 2D elements. This is Beakus’ first broadcast series, developed in-house at CBeebies.
'Numtums' is a multi-platform 25×5 minute series that gives young children a foundation in basic numeracy all wrapped in a fun, energetic and irreverent format. Combining a troop of animated Numtums, live-action children and sing-along songs, the series starts with the basics of numeral recognition and then gently moves on to counting objects and identifying amounts in a variety of fun and bonkers scenarios. It’s a fun, fast, and bright series, and if you'd like to learn more please do get in touch!
