Mel B narrates Sky Kids’ Happy Town

February 20, 2024

Sky Kids has unveiled two new animated Sky Original series coming to the channel later this year.

Narrated by Spice Girl Mel B, Happy Town follows the problem-solving adventures of a hedgehog and ladybird best friend duo, Pep and Tabitha, in a charming and unique community. The brightness of the light in Happy Town depends on the townsfolks’ glee, so each time it starts to fizz out, the duo set out on a mission to make the sign shine bright again by helping others and encouraging everyone to help each other too.

Mel B commented: “This is a huge moment for me to be the voice of Happy Town for Sky Kids – my first time ever as a narrator. I’ve actually spent years looking for the perfect children’s show to get involved with because I’m a mum of three and I strongly believe that little ones learn so much through brilliant, colourful, creative storytelling. Happy Town is all about kindness and community and a cute ladybird and hedgehog duo who make it their mission to help people. I’m totally in love with this gorgeous Sky Kids show. At its heart is fun, adventure and great entertainment – just like me really,”

Also joining Sky Kids’ slate is animated comedy series Let’s Go, Bananas! created and written by Tim Bain (Bluey, PJ Masks), focussing on a community of three sweet and silly neighbouring animal families who share each other’s triumphs, dramas and completely bananas lives.

Lucy Murphy, Director of Sky Kids, said: “Full of positivity and encouraging creative thinking, Happy Town is a burst of colour and joy which is completely encapsulated in the brilliant Mel B’s warm and engaging narration. And we’re delighted to be working with Tim Bain on the hilarious Let’s Go Bananas! which shows kids that family is what you make it”.
