About Hey, Kujo!
Hey Kujo! is a preschool series dedicated to celebrating differences. It creates a diverse, inclusive and welcoming community by showing positive role models for Black, Indigenous,
People of Colour (BIPOC) and the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community.
In every episode, Kujo and a curious child go on a Mission of Discovery with the help of the centre’s puppet friends, staff, kid and guest experts. The result is a fun, informative and silly adventure.

CAST OF CHARACTERS

Kujo, Community Centre Manager
In Ghanian culture, the name Kujo means 'born on a Monday'.
And like Mondays, Kujo looks at things with a fresh outlook.
He believes that questions are the best way for children to explore the diverse world around them to become who they are meant to be. He loves helping them find answers.
With his trademark red glasses, cool air and African dashiki, Kujo brings a curious and fun approach to learning about his neighbourhood while embracing and celebrating differences.
He invites all children to 'ask questions of the world so you can learn to be kind, be brave, be curious, and most importantly, Be Yourself!'
