Disney Branded Television announced today that Kiff, the nutty new animated buddy-comedy about optimistic squirrel Kiff and her chill bunny bestie Barry, will premiere Friday, March 10, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel and Wednesday, March 15, on Disney+.
From creators and executive producers Lucy Heavens and Nic Smal, the series follows Kiff and Barry as they navigate school, relationships, and their often-eccentric community in Table Town, a world where animals and magical oddballs tackle day-to-day life together.
Kimiko Glenn voices the titular role of Kiff, whose thirst for life takes her on countless adventures through her city alongside Barry, voiced by H Michael Croner. The series’ theme song was also released today.
Inspired by the people and places Heavens and Smal experienced when they were growing up in Cape Town, South Africa, each half-hour episode, comprised of two 11-minute stories, will include a new original song. In addition to their creative roles, Heavens and Smal also voice characters in the series: Heavens as Kiff’s drama teacher, Helen, and Smal as the principal of Table Town School, Principal Secretary.
