How Superbook originated
In 1981, Superbook was first released as a cartoon series in Japan. At the time, no one knew what impact the series would have on children around the world. Many children sat in front of the screens night after night watching Superbook at prime time on Japanese television. The Bible became the best-selling book in Japan at that time.
In 1989, Superbook was then broadcast in the Soviet Union. During the broadcast, CBN received thousands of letters from children. A whole generation came into contact with the message of God’s love through Superbook.
After Japan and Russia, Superbook spread further and further into the world. More than 500 million people watched the 52 episodes, which were translated into 43 languages and broadcast in 106 countries.
Reissue as an animation series
The new edition of the children’s series classic was designed in 2013 as a modern animation series and inspires not only the young audience with its high-quality and loving design. Together with a team of artists, formerly involved in films such as The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan, the remake was developed from Emmy® winners.
