PRESS RELEASE – OLLIE GETS A MAKE-OVER !!
6th September 1999
Ollie and his friends are getting ready for a make-over. The creators of the program have decided that its time for Ollie and his friends to get both an artistic and technological upgrade. This means a new format – vector graphics – and a new look – to keep the characters up to date with other cartoon personalities on the web.
"It's 4 years since we made the first Ollie and its now time for an upgrade", said Professor Tim Austin, Creative Director of the Program. "We have spent a great deal of time researching the look and feel of other programs on the market and we know what kids like."
The Executive Producer of the Ollie Programs, Jane Stewart, says "we are very excited about the new range of Ollie Programs. We are working hard to create a new program with a whole new look and feel as well as many new activities and projects."
