Superstar Gwen Stefani’s animated series “Kuu Kuu Harajuku” arrives on DVD Tuesday June 13 from Shout! Factory in collaboration with DHX Media. The first installment, “Kuu Kuu Harajuku: Music, Baby!” contains 14 episodes from Season One. Initial shipments of the DVD contain a code to download the show’s theme song (while supplies last).  The 2D-animated series currently airs on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and on Family Channel in Canada.

The series follows the fun-filled adventures of the band HJ5—Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G—through their super kawaii (cute) world of music, fashion and style. The inspiration for this popular animated series came from Grammy-winning musician Stefani who wanted to create an animated series for girls that encourages and celebrates creative self-expression, imagination and individuality.  The show’s setting is inspired by the exuberant street fashion and creative youth culture of the Harajuku district but it takes place in a magical fantasy world like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

“Kuu Kuu Harajuku” is a co-creation and produced by Moody Street Kids (Australia), Vision Animation (Malaysia) along with Stefani, and commissioned by Network Ten with investment funding from Film Victoria (Australia) and MyCreative Ventures (Malaysia). DHX Media handles international distribution for the series, and licensed the series to Shout! Factory.
