Originally founded as Norooz Productions in New York and Los Angeles, the company adopted its current name two years later in 2007 when it opened a Vancouver office. Big Bad Boo was co-founded by entrepreneurs Shabnam Rezaei [5] and Aly Jetha with the initial direct-to-DVD movie Babak and Friends - A First Norooz,[6] a Norooz holiday-special starring Shohreh Aghdashloo and Catherine Bell. The company's mission is to create content to teach kids about different stereotypes and different languages.
