The first episode of this series is especially dedicated to Christmas.

In this new series, children will get the chance to learn problem solving skills, friendships and the use of imagination. Creators of the show, Scott and Julie Stewart were inspired by their very own daughter. When asked about their inspiration, here is what they had to say, “We looked at our pigtailed spitfire, Kate, who was two years old at the time and obsessed with her plush bunny, Mim-Mim. Then we looked at our boys, William and Matthew, who were six and four years old at the time. They have absolutely wild and crazy ideas, and through them, we saw just how extraordinary children’s imaginations are. They gave us the idea to have Kate’s toy, Mim-Mim, come to life. Shortly thereafter, we created Mimiloo, a vivid world inspired by all three of them.”
Viewers will get a chance to see both the world of Kate at home and the world of Mimiloo. When she has an issue at home, a quick trip to Mimiloo helps her find a solution. Anything is possible in Mimiloo. With Mim-Mim and all her friends, adventure and fun is always on the agenda.
With today being the first episode, this series will be recurring daily. On Monday-Thursday at 8:00-9:00 PM and Saturday-Sunday at 4:30-5:00 PM, you can catch this series on the Disney Junior channel. Tonight’s special Christmas episode will air at 8 PM.
