AfrikaToon, an Ivorian animation studio that produces 2D and 3D toons, has created an animated children’s series titled Koka Kitoumbou.
The 13-episode series is for international broadcaster TV5 Monde and is aimed at kids aged three years and above. It follows the adventures of two characters: 10-year-old Malisha and her woollen doll, Rikitou.
Together, they face many trials and tribulations in search of the Koka Kitoumbou stone, a magical and powerful stone capable of transforming everything she touches into confectionery of all kinds.
The Koka Kitoumbou series is filled with magic, sweets and a fantastic universe and portrays human values such as love, tolerance, honesty and hard work.
Abidjan-based AfrikaToon is thought to be the first animation studio in French-speaking Africa to have produced an animated feature film. The company also operates SVoD service AfrikaToonTV.
