Animonsta operated in MAC3, Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) content developer incubation facility located in Cyberjaya and has since moved their studio at the SME Technopreneur Center in the middle of 2012.
The original concept of BoBoiBoy story centers on an coffee-addict alien named Adu Du that has made his way to Earth.

The change, according to BoBoiBoy Facebook fan page was due to the fact that coffee is a bitter-tasting drink, and does not appeal well to children.
