Minibeast Heroes TV Series

6 episodes   |   Television Show  |  ABC Education

A gigantic redback spider, dung beetle, honey bee, lady bird, worm and meat ant are the six heroes of a high-tech animation developed by the team at Deakin Motion.Lab in partnership with ABC Education and produced by ABC R&D.

On February 5, 2018 the ABC launched the program “Minibeast Heroes” as part of ABC Education and will be seen by millions of students online and on TV. With breathtaking photorealism, each animated insect is shown as an environmental hero and towers over the animated “human” host, who is half their size.


The program was the centrepiece of ABC Education for 2018 and again at the start of COVID school from home in 2020.
