Yakka Dee

Series of 20 x 5-mins

Yakka Dee! is a pre-school series for CBeebies, created by Katie Simmons, Lotte Elwell, and Steve Smith. Each episode we learn about a new word - be it banana, duck or dog - and go on a fun visual adventure exploring the iterations of that word in everyday life. A little animated character, Dee, then helps live-action children to say the word for the first time, thereby opening up their vocabulary and growing their speech confidence. Animated by Mighty, with animation direction from Chris Allen, the show was an instant hit with CBeebies youngest audience. Watch full episodes here.
