Synopsis:

WHO SAID BATH TIME IS BORING?

It’s bath time. The moment when a small gang of divers dives headfirst into the Bloopie World.  There is their Secret Club and the entrance to Shellie World, where the Bloopies transform into mermaids, solve quests and have fun with mischievous creatures called Shellies.

The creation of this series has been complex, because we had to create a double underwater world, a Bathtub bottom, as well as an imaginary world accessed through the bathtub drain. We also had to create special hairstyles for the characters, with real hair. This complicated the production a lot, but it was a very nice and fun challenge.
It was also very complex to create an underwater animation style that gave the feeling of actually being underwater but that we could tell all kinds of stories without any problems. The creation of the stories was also a challenge, because we needed to make a lot of things happen in both worlds and make them both interconnected with the same theme so that we could link the Bloopie world with the Shellie world in just 5 minutes that each chapter lasts.
