Nanalan’ (partially found Canadian children’s TV series; 2004-late 2000s)
Nanalan’ was a series of Canadian puppet shorts created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley, running from 1999 to 2004. The series starred a 3-year-old puppet girl named Mona, her dog Russell, and her grandmother, Nana Bea. The shorts centered around Mona spending her days in Nana Bea’s backyard. 71 shorts in total were produced for CBC Kids in Canada, and Nick Jr. in the US.
The shorts proved so popular, that Nanalan’ began airing as a series of 22-minute episodes. The 22-minute episodes were produced in late 2003, and aired on CBC in January 2004. While it is currently unknown when the series ended, it is known that 43 episodes were produced.
While all the shorts can easily be found on sites such as YouTube, only 3 out of the 44 22-minute episodes are found.
