Superkompisarna –
a Soja Original

This show has everything: trains, ninjas, pranks, beekeepers, grandpas, a cozy tent with a dog and pillows in it, and a pop star named Star who is dressed like a star.

Through the years we’ve always said that animation is so much more than shows and films for children. But suddenly we found ourselves pitching and getting the green light for an animated children’s TV show. Fast-forward five years, and the show Sånger med Superkompisarna is available in both Sweden and Norway, the music from the show is available on Spotify, and children are having crazy dance parties while watching a special sing-a-long version in cinemas across Sweden.

Telling stories for children is a privilege and a responsibility. We wanted the show to challenge norms and be truly inclusive, but above all was the responsibility to make something that’s crazy fun-tastic, catchy and ready to drive parents up the wall. Luckily, we could get the parents on board through recruiting Swedish indie pop power duo Annika Norlin and Henrik Oja to write the music.
