A 2D animated series with a blend of live action, Pablo features a smart and artistic little boy Pablo, whose imaginative drawings come to life enabling him to face the Real World with confidence.
Pablo is 5½ and on the autism spectrum. Using his magic crayons, Pablo bravely turns his life challenges into fantastic adventures and his feelings into colourful characters with a voice and with the help of his Art World friends, Llama, Noa, Mouse, Draff, Tang and Wren, Pablo is better able to make sense of his 5½ year old world.
Pablo is a celebration of individuality and of thinking differently. The first ever children’s series to feature an autistic central character, each story reflects the real-life experiences of children with autism, and has been devised, co-written and voiced by young autistic talent.
Pablo is set to air on CBeebies and RTÉJr. A second season was commissioned a year ahead of delivery – a CBeebies first.
Six games and a slate of short films accompany the series.
