Rollie Pollie Ollie tells the tales of robot Olie Polie and his family, who live on Planet Polie with their dog Spot.

KidsCo will also be introducing a raft of new titles into its schedule throughout the year including a new original production: Zuzu and the Supernuffs, which is currently being produced by award-winning production company Matchbox Pictures (NBCUniversal) – with who KidsCo announced a content deal last year.
