ABC partners with CBC to bring The Wonder Gang to young audiences in Canada

Sydney, Australia: ABC Commercial announced Series 1 & 2 of its warm and playful fact-finding series for preschoolers The Wonder Gang (60 x 15’) has been acquired by CBC, Canada’s national public broadcaster. The series premiered in September 2021 on CBC TV and is now available on the CBC Gem streaming service which offers more than 400 hours of advertising-free content for kids.

The Wonder Gang is an exciting new series from the ABC commissioning team behind the global success Bluey.

Willow, Whyla and Wes are the Wonder Gang – a determined team of inquisitive kids who will do whatever it takes to answer any question about amazing animals and nature, no matter how complicated! With the help of their super cute quokka pals and armed with a dazzling array of glowing gadgets and technology, the Wonder Gang are dedicated to finding out how the natural world works.

Jessica Ellis, Acting Head of ABC Commercial said “We’re excited that kids in Canada can see this terrific new show featuring a diverse live action cast that, with a mix of puppetry and animation, addresses questions from curious kids. The Wonder Gang has been warmly received by Australian children, so we are thrilled to be working with CBC to bring this wonderful series to Canadian preschoolers.”

This ABC Children’s original production is a groundbreaking new series igniting children’s imaginations about the natural world and teaching them the art of enquiry and curiosity. It’s a powerful life skill to know how to ask questions, where to look, how to filter facts and come to a conclusion. The Wonder Gang does all of this – cleverly disguised in a big E for Entertainment format where the Wonder Gang team work together through research, observation and analysis. Our goal is to support kids all over the world to always keep wondering” said Libbie Doherty, ABC Head of Children’s Production.

Marie McCann, Senior Director, Children’s Content, CBC Kids said “We’re pleased to bring this fun and fresh series to young audiences in Canada. Canadian kids and families have been asking for more shows about science and animals, and The Wonder Gang is the perfect pairing of both from our friends and partners at ABC Kids.
