Hopefully, this means these new episodes, in addition to the classic episodes, will be heading to Disney in some form soon. However, we DO need to point out that Disney did have distribution rights to air episodes in the United States but not internationally. Which may stifle plans for a Disney+ premiere or a global release of new episodes.
You can check out one of the awesome episodes of the series here:
The French-Canadian computer-animated show was produced by Nelvana and Sparx in association with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Disney Channel. In addition to William Joyce, Maggie Swanson and Anne Wood are also creators. The production aired on Disney Junior from March 23, 2012 until September 28, 2014.
The show won a Gemini Award in Canada for “Best Animated Program” in 1999. It also won an Daytime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Special Class Animated Program” in 2000 and 2005. William Joyce also won his own Emmy for the project for Best Production Design.
The show focuses on the Polie Family, loveable robots who who live in a teapot-shaped house in a geometric world known as planet Polie. The main character is Olie with episodes centering around him learning life lessons and going on wacky adventures while growing up. Other characters include his little sister Zowie, inventor father, hard-working mom, his grandfather Pappy and the family dog named spot.
