Engie Benjy Daily at 6.35am, 10.35am and 2.35pm

Step inside the vibrant and colourful world of Engie Benjy the engine doctor, and his very special team: Dan the Van and Jollop The Dog, in Engie Benjy, daily at 6.35am, 10.35am and 2.35pm on TVNZ Kidzone on TVNZ 6.

This super duper trio of engine-menders together turn the adult/child relationship upside down by helping all sorts of characters from bossy Dottie the Bus Driver, and cry-baby Pilot Pete, to mumbling Farmer Fred and nutty Fisherman Fin.
In Engie’s vibrant world, created through CGI and stop-motion animation, amazing things happen: planes creep out to have parties at night, buses get tired and need holidays, woodland trees leap into the sky to play with Space Ship, and Farmer Fred’s fruity fizz cloud waters the ice-lolly fields every day.

Communicating with pre-schoolers can be difficult – whether it’s getting them dressed in the morning, trying on new shoes, explaining the concept of right and wrong – or even hanging on for that last bit of broccoli to be eaten! But Engie Benjy can be used as a tool to help children understand situations.

The characters in Engie Benjy make mistakes, are sometimes naughty, and sometimes get angry. But through co-operation, solutions are found. By seeing the consequences of their action and the effect it has on their friends, lessons in behaviour are learned. When a first attempt doesn’t work, it’s found that creativity and persistence sometimes do.

Produced by Emmy and BAFTA award winning Cosgrove Hall Films in the UK, Engie Benjy is voiced by UK top telly duo “Ant and Dec” – Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Engie Benjy fosters children’s imagination and creativity while also teaching them invaluable lessons about problem-solving, and teamwork.
