BoBoiBoy is a Malaysian animated series produced by Animonsta Studios, centering on a boy who has elemental-based superpowers and the ability to separate into three. With his friends, Ying, Yaya (Hannah in the English version), Gopal, and Fang, they fight to protect the earth from alien threats who aim to conquer the Earth in the hunt for cocoa beans.

Production[edit]

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).[1] 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.[2]

The original concept of the story centres on a coffee-addict alien named Adu Du who has made his way to Earth.[3] A minor change was made later, where instead of coffee, the alien is now in search of cocoa.[4] 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.[5]

The series was released simultaneously in two languages, Malay version and English version for the local and 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 chosen to voice the main character, BoBoiBoy.[6]
