Production[edit]

BoBoiBoy is the first product of Animonsta Studios, an animation company established by Nizam Razak with three other partners (Safwan Abdul Karim, Anas Abdul Aziz and Kee Yong Pin).[citation needed] The four were originally employed by Les' Copaque Production, a company first founded by Nizam and Safwan, and are famous for the animation series Upin & Ipin and film Geng: Pengembaraan Bermula, directed by Nizam. Animonsta operated in MAC3, Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) content developer incubation facility located in Cyberjaya and has since moved their studio at the Technopreneur Center in the middle of 2012.[citation needed]

The original concept of the story centres on a coffee-addict alien named Adu Du who has made his way to Earth. A minor change was made later, where instead of coffee, the alien is now in search of cocoa. The change, according to the BoBoiBoy Facebook fan page, was due to the fact that coffee is a bitter-tasting drink, and does not appeal to children.[citation needed]

The series was released simultaneously in two languages, Malay version and English version for the local international market, respectively. Both versions fully utilises the different voice actors. In the Malay version, the original voice actor for Upin & Ipin, Nur Fathiah Diaz, was invited to voice the main character, BoBoiBoy.[citation needed]
