About Olive the Ostrich
Olive the Ostrich is a UK smash hit that is produced and owned by Blue Zoo Productions, Ltd.
Olive is an ostrich with a big imagination, huge heart and a gigantic appetite for adventure! She lives in the outback with her family, but Olive is different… What makes Olive special is her amazing imagination. So while her family is running, pecking and laying eggs, Olive can be found imagining herself going on exciting adventures when she buries her head, down, deep down into the sand…
Olive the Ostrich debuted in the US on Sprout in mid 2012 and is currently shown in Australia, Denmark, UK, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Benelux, France, Poland, Canada, and Israel. In each episode, animators bring to life real pictures drawn by children. The children’s artwork is used to create all the guest characters, places and objects that Olive encounters. Inquisitive and enthusiastic, Olive loves to solve problems and help people whenever she can. She’ll try anything once, which can get her into trouble, but she always finds fun and inventive ways to get out of it.
