BoBoiBoy is the first product of Animonsta Studios Sdn. Bhd., an animation company established by Nizam Razak with three other partners (Safwan Abdul Karim, Anas Abdul Aziz, and Kee Yong Pin).

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.
