Guru Studio’s hit animated series, Big Blue has just dropped an animated music video of the extended version of the show’s theme song, produced by Grammy Awards winning producer Timbaland and written by Anthem Entertainment’s award-winning Jingle Punks. The catchy, heart-pumping hip-hop jam is available now across streaming services via Anthem Records – listen here.
The show was created by Guru Studio designer Gyimah Gariba, a Ghanian-Canadian artist who has built a massive online following for his distinct illustrative style and was recently named one of “15 Young African Creatives Rebranding Africa” by Forbes.
Big Blue airs in Canada on CBC Kids and CBC Gem, and in the UK on Nickelodeon.

“Trying something different is what it’s all about and being a part of a kids show that’s so unique is as different as it gets for me,” shared Timbaland. “I’m looking forward to speaking to the next generation and helping to make a difference.”
Big Blue is created by animation producer Guru Studio (PAW Patrol, True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Pikwik Pack) and follows sibling underwater adventurers Lettie and Lemo as they lead a quirky submarine crew with a magical ocean fairy stowaway named Bacon Berry. The show encourages kids to explore and protect our environment.
