Great news for David Tennant's younger fans, his hit children's series Tree Fu Tom has been commissioned for more episodes!
Tree Fu Tom has been CBeebies highest rated show since it began airing in March 2012 which has prompted CBeebies controller Kay Benbow to order another 26x26′ run.
CBeebies and FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) will again co-produce, with FME taking global distribution rights. Blue Zoo will continue to provide the amazing animation.
Jackie Edwards and Alison Stewart will executive produce for CBeebies, with Bob Higgins and Sander Schwartz as executive producers for FME.
A new run of episodes is currently airing on CBeebies on weekdays at 5.25pm
Former Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Sophie Aldred voice the lead characters Tom (Aldred) and Twigs (Tennant) in the new multi-platform fantasy action adventure series, Tree Fu Tom.
Aimed at four to six year olds, Tree Fu Tom is set in an enchanted world where movement creates magic. Tom appears to be a normal eight-year-old boy but putting on his magic belt and performing a special sequence of magic action-movements (known as Tree Fu) transforms him into a tiny but mighty magical super-hero.
Using a Tree Fu spell, Tom is transported into a wondrous enchanted kingdom in a tree called Treetopolis, inhabited by sprites, bugs and naughty fungi – the ‘Mushas’. Here he meets his faithful sidekick Twigs, a silly and energetic Acorn Sprite.
Tom and Twigs are inseparable as they become embroiled in amazing, action-packed adventures, which always lead to trouble, impending disaster and catastrophe. When events run beyond their control it is only with help from the audience performing Tree Fu moves, that Tom can create spectacular Big World Magic and save the day!
All of the Tree Fu magic moves that children are encouraged to copy are developed from therapeutic techniques that are used to help children with movement disorders like Dyspraxia, but are designed to assist and enhance the development of all participating children at a crucial time in their growth.
