On Monday Giggle and Hoot marks its 10th birthday on air.
Host Jimmy Giggle (James Rees) and his pals Hoot, Hootabelle, Giggleosaurus, Mini-Hoot, Gigglepaws & co. will celebrate all day Monday on ABC KIDS with favourite tunes: Five Steps to Bed, Twinklify, Giggle Galaxy, Go Giggleosaurus, and Hoot’s Lullaby.
David Simes features as as Hoot the Owl and Giggle Fangs with Jemma Armstrong as Hootabelle, Mark Simpson as Pirate Hootbeard, Stef Smith as Hootogadget and Cam Ralph as Hootpa.
The very musical Rees, who featured recently on 10’s Dancing with the Stars, was discovered at the age of 22 through a talent search for the now-defunct ABC3.
A birthday party special will also screen today.
The series has been awarded by International Kidscreen Awards, APRA Screen Music Awards, PromaxBDA ANZ and the Australian Toy Association.
In 2016 ABC also introduced spin-off series Hoot Hoot Go.
