Bananas in Pyjamas Safe on ABC TV

Press Release

ABC TV confirms that it will continue to broadcast Bananas in Pyjamas, one of the globe’s most popular and iconic children’s programs.


The latest series has 156 new episodes, with the current block of episodes premiering in May this year. In order to make the most of our significant investment in the hugely popular program, we will continue airing these episodes to a new generation of Australian pre-schoolers, as has been our
standard practice in children’s television for more than two decades.

Another series of Bananas in Pyjamas will go through the usual commissioning process to determine future production of the program. This process does not relate to current Government funding.

In 2012 ABC4Kids was the highest ranking children’s television service for pre-schoolers aged 0 – 4 and we acknowledge the invaluable contribution Bananas in Pyjamas has made to that success.
