The adaptation follows optimistic young elephant Mumfie and his best friends Pinkey the flying pig and Jelly Bean the colour-changing jellyfish as they embark on daily adventures with their eclectic bunch of animal friends.

KiKa will premiere Mumfie in its 06:30 kids’ primetime slot. The series is directed by Daniel Dubuis and distributed globally by Banijay-owned Zodiak Kids.
