Cartoon Network UK New Buddy Network Videos
Cartoon Network UK has updated their Buddy Network website and has uploaded more anti-bullying advice videos onto their YouTube channel. Since 2014, Cartoon Network UK has been promoting their anti-bullying initiative during National Anti-Bullying Week every November. The website advises children to tell someone what’s happening, be friendly and speak out if they’re being physically or verbally hurt or they know someone who’s been bullied. The website also features advice from the initiative’s ambassadors: Alistair Brownlee and Jonathan Brownlee, Tom Daley, Tinie Tempah and Childline ambassador Anna Williamson.
Each of the three new animated anti-bullying videos have a different theme; all featuring 3D CGI characters voiced by children, the video entitled “Let’s Make Friends” emphasizes the importance of friendship, including respect and trust for each other and having fun. “New Kid On The Block” is about being friendly and welcoming to new people at school and “We Are All Different” talks about the personal differences between themselves and their friends while they still get along despite their different likes and dislikes.
