Meet Bino and Fino's teacher. We don't have a name for her yet. She's going to help them find out about the world.
This was an event put together in Paris by Pour Une Meilleure Afrique called Journée Découverte du Dessin Animé Africain or Discovery Day of African Cartoon. It's a great event where a collection of African animation is shown to children and activities are based around it. This video shows young girls having fun learning about different fruits and healthy eating. This was after watching the Bino and Fino episode 'Bino's Cold' in which Bino and Fino learn about the importance of healthy eating.
Bino and Fino dance Azonto. This clip is definitely proving to be a favourite amongst the kids!! Join in. You know you want to.
Finally here it is! The 1st screen test from the new season of Bino and Fino. Work on the new episodes of Bino and Fino is progressing well. Unfortunately with animation, it takes a while before you can have something to show. This clip shows their new living room.
As you know we are very passionate about children’s animated content from Africa. Some of you have asked us if we know of any other projects like ours. There are a few projects in development or that are finished that we know of so we will list them here for you. The list is by no means complete as sometimes it is hard to get news about them. Where possible we try to show content produced in Africa with an educational slant. So here is the list and we’ll do our best to keep it up to date. Let us know of any you know as well.
Abeba and Abebe
Abeba and Abebe' is an animation series made in Ethiopia with kids, for kids, about… kids! Abeba and Abebe is the first ever animated series to be made in Ethiopia by and for Ethiopians. It follows a standard kids series format of 52 x 7 min episodes (that’s one story a week for a year!) and is aimed at an audience of 6 - 12 year olds. Here is the website.
A proud new owner of the Bino and Fino DVD! Love the hairstyle she’s rocking. It’s like Fino’s afro puffs!
