The famous Precious Moments characters are being reinvented as an animated series.

Cyber Group Studios is developing Precious Moments into an animated comedy adventure series for kids ages 4-6. A total of 52 11-minute episodes are on deck from creators Scott and Julie Stewart (Kate & Mim-Mim) along with four 30- to 60-minute holiday specials.

“Precious Moments embodies values that have been embraced and celebrated by families for generations,” say Cyber Group Studios Charman and CEO Pierre Sissmann and Cyber Group Studios USA President and CEO Karen K. Miller. “After a very challenging year for all of us, we have a wonderful opportunity to create a series that delivers magical and heartwarming moments with endearing characters who will bring so much joy to viewers of all ages around the world”

Precious Moments follows the adventures of 8-year-old Hope and her pet hamster, Sammy, as they work together to help make dreams come true for the kids of Heartspring. Cyber Group Studios says that the series features diverse characters and strong messages of inclusiveness.

The Precious Moments brand has been a staple of gift shops for decades and the new animated series opens up new possibilities for licensing, including toys and games.
