Ziggy the Rappin’ Zebrasaurus


Liquid Animation recently released a press release ahead of the launch of their original character, Ziggy the Zebrasaurus, on Sesame Street. The article featured on industry sites and major newspaper pages around the country.


Sunny days are sweeping the clouds away for creative studio Liquid Animation as they deliver an original short for iconic children’s television broadcaster, Sesame Street, in New York.

Liquid Animation Managing Director Steve Viner said the deal was a major coup for the Brisbane-based studio and highlights their significant base of overseas work for major US entertainment companies.

“Like millions of kids across the world, we grew up watching Sesame Street, so to be asked to develop an original series for the television show is a really big deal for our creative team,” he said.

Ziggy the Rapping Zebrasaurus is an educational and fun program aimed at teaching pre-schoolers about shapes.

“As a studio that has cut its teeth on producing work for other people, we’re extremely excited to be developing our own story ideas,” Steve said.

This achievement comes off the back of a recent award win for the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards. The company’s extensive work for international companies has also garnered them a finalist Premier’s Export Award in the Arts and Entertainment category.

This is not Liquid Animation’s first foray into original content creation, having recently developed a series for Disney called Igutso, Animal Prankster, which is pending release.

“Each two minute episode represents 600-700 hours of work for local writers, character designers, art directors, animators, compositors, musicians, and producers, so it is a huge investment for us.

“There aren’t many Australian studios selling to the likes of Disney and Sesame Street, but we’re pleased to be joining the ranks.

“This achievement takes us a step closer to our dreams of producing a full length feature film out of our Brisbane studio.”
