After School Buddy

This year the Kumite Classic featured a very talented group of performers known as “Afterschool Buddy” The crowd was cheering as the group brought adventures to life on the main stage.

Afterschool Buddy is a full-service, multimedia production company and future home of the exciting “Adventures with Afterschool Buddy & the Gang®”. We saw a need for fresh, new, innovative children’s programming to inspire the next generation to greater heights. Our mission is to provide television programs, internet content, music & books that educate and entertain children everywhere with important life lessons that continue long after the school day is over.

With a global outlook and a quest to show every child the world, Afterschool Buddy® and our beloved “family” of Jake Poodles®, Manny Cat®, Aunt Junk® and The Rainbow Kids® are ready to launch more amazing adventures in 2011. We will showcase multi-cultural diversity, teach important lessons about the environment, show children how to respect themselves and others, teach health & wellness tips, and show children how to care for those wonderful companions–our pets. Come along with us for an exciting ride that children, parents, teachers will never forget. “It’s Afterschool Buddy® & the Gang. Hey! It’s Afterschool Buddy® & the Gang!”
