What is Superbook?
Superbook is an animated children's series produced by the Christian Broadcasting Network. The original show first broadcast in 1981 and was part of a new outreach to Japan. Over time, the show began to grow and eventually had as many as 8 million viewers watching on a regular basis. The show continued growing, even being broadcast in the Soviet Union by 1989. Since that time, Superbook has been seen by more than 500 million people, and 52 episodes have been translated into 43 languages. Superbook has now been broadcast in 106 countries.
After its success, the show was recently reimagined using 3D CGI instead of the old 2D animated style. Their hopes for this new style is to bring in a new audience and breathe new life into an amazing old classic. This new update hopes to respect the classic series while bringing in a new generation of young viewers. If your children are fans of other Christian children's shows like Veggietales or 321 Penguins, they are sure to enjoy this wonderful series. In each episode, the children journey to another story from the Bible, each time learning about new things that God has done. Through their many travels with the Superbook, Chris, Joy, and their robot Gizmo have journeyed to see the miracles of Jesus, witnessed the Ten Commandments, encountered Jacob and Esau and their family feud, and experienced the book of Revelation and the Final Battle.

Gizmo is Chris and Joy's robot friend. He was built by Chris' dad, Professor Quantum and was designed to help protect and watch over Chris and Joy. However, this plan usually backfires and it's usually Chris and Joy that are helping Gizmo. He enjoys upgrading to find new uses and abilities and prefers to stay in the lab than time-travel. Gizmo loves spending time with Chris and Joy and is able to assist them by changing appearances as needed.
