Disney Junior premieres T.O.T.S. on Disney Junior, Monday, 16 September, DStv Channel 309 at 4.30pm. The series is a heartfelt animated comedy for kids aged 2 to 7, and is about the adventures of best friends Pip and Freddy – a tenacious penguin and a kind-hearted flamingo, who are the only non-stork delivery birds in-training at Tiny Ones Transport Service (T.O.T.S.).
Bringing This Baby Home
As new members of the esteemed team, these junior flyers must take tender care in transferring baby animals – kittens, cubs, calves, bunnies, puppies and joeys among them – from the nursery to their forever families around the globe. Together, they will learn how to nurture and care for the babies and use creative thinking and problem solving to model for young viewers that there isn’t just one way to achieve a goal.
Set in a vibrant mini city in the sky, T.O.T.S. is a safe and magical starting point for baby animals. Upon arrival, they are tended to by K.C., a playful, free-spirited koala who runs the nursery with love, patience and expert care. When it’s time to depart for their forever homes, each adorable animal is placed in a customised crate specific to their needs. Every delivery bird has a Flypad which signals that it’s time to send another bundle of joy on its way, uniting the precious babies with their families around the world.
The reputable T.O.T.S. organisation is run by Captain Beakman, a tough but fair pelican who leads her team with efficiency and encouragement. She has a soft spot for Pip and Freddy, who have just landed their dream job as the newest junior flyers hoping to earn their wings.
Pip is a determined problem-solver while Freddy is nurturing, upbeat and a little silly. In each episode, the loveable oddball duo must work together to overcome challenges and navigate adventures in order to earn a stamp in their handbooks—one for each successful delivery.
Disney Junior has ordered a second season of the animated series T.O.T.S. — ahead of the series debut. Every episode has an original song and the delivery anthem Bringing This Baby Home.
