Mama Mirabelle's Home Movies is a 2006 animated television series. Set in the African savanna, it focuses on an enthusiastic elephant named Mama Mirabelle, who travels around the world to film real wildlife footage and project them onto a screen of fireflies in front of almost the entire animal kingdom. The "Home Movies" are used for educational purposes not only for the principal young characters, but for the target audience at home. It is animated using the same computer software as Peppa Pig. The live action footage comes from the BBC Natural History Unit archives, as well as the National Geographic Society, and is also shown in the United States on PBS. In the American version all of the animals except Karla have American voices. Vanessa Williams is the voice of Mama Mirabelle in the US, and Floella Benjamin is the voice for the UK Mama Mirabelle. The series is produced by UK animation company King Rollo Films, whose other shows include Paz, Maizy, and Mr. Benn. Mama Mirabelle's Home Movies season 1 runs as 52 11-minute shows on CBeebies, but the show is running on PBS Kids as of 2008 in a thirty-minute slot by combining two ten minute shows with extra songs, features, and games. Music for this show is written by Lester Barnes, the composer for Horrid Henry, Me Too!, Paz, and Urmel.) The series was created by Douglas Wood, who is also the author of the companion children's picture book, When Mama Mirabelle Comes Home, published by National Geographic Channel Book.
