or Meet Popo the Penguin, depending on how you look at it. Many people have asked us why Ying loses her powers when she sneezes and gets them back when she sneezes a second time. We're not sure ourselves so you'll have to keep on watching BoBoiBoy to find out. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Everyone needs a superhero, but some come in the most unlikeliest of guises, like the bunch in the new 3D animation series BoBoiBoy.
FOLLOWING the runaway success of Upin & Ipin, director Mohd Nizam Abdul Razak (better known as Nizam), has exhibited that the best is yet to come. BoBoiBoy, which made its debut on TV3 last week, is a new 3D animation series from part of the team behind Upin & Ipin as well asGeng: The Adventure Begins.
“We realised that Malaysians still do not have a child superhero icon. That’s when we got the idea to introduce BoBoiBoy,” said the director, when asked why he picked a superhero kid concept for his animation. He added that he felt “the concept itself would easily be accepted as long as the storyline is good.”
Nizam explained that each episode would be different, with the heroes – four in total – exploring their individual powers.

SELEPAS sekian lama peminat disogok dengan impak besar menerusi siri animasi popular, Upin & Ipin, kini tiba giliran siri baru, Boboiboy, satu lagi animasi hasil kerja dan kreativiti rakyat tempatan.


Kehadiran siri animasi yang diterbitkan Animonsta Studio Sdn Bhd itu bukan untuk menyaingi siri animasi tempatan sedia ada Upin & Ipin. Sebaliknya memberi pilihan kepada penonton selain membuktikan bidang animasi tempatan semakin berkembang serta mendapat pengiktirafan di peringkat antarabangsa.

Pengarah Urusan Animonsta Studio, Mohd Nizam Abd Razak yang juga bekas pengarah Upin & Ipin berkata, animasi ‘superhero’ itu bukan untuk menyaingi mana-mana pihak sebaliknya fokus utama mereka adalah memberi pilihan kepada peminat siri berkenaan.

Katanya, selain tampil bersama konsep animasi tiga dimensi (3D) ia turut mengetengahkan pelbagai pengajaran serta dapat mendidik penonton khususnya kanak-kanak.

At 27 he has created Malaysia’s 1st internationally successful animated children’s series, with movie and merchandise to boot. Part of the team behind Upin &  Ipin, Geng: The Adventures begins and now Boboiboy, JUICEchats with Mohd Safwan on animating for the young.
How was DigiCon6 and Tokyo? What did you get from the whole experience?
DigiCon 6 is a great platform for us to showcase and compare our animations with other Asian countries. We managed to gain some contacts from Japanese broadcasters and animation studios. It’s also a great experience to be able to visit the TBS Studio and Polygon Pictures, and be able to meet with their high-ranking managers and directors to exchange views. I’m very much amazed and thankful for their great hospitality during my stay there.
