Info: Upin & Ipin Animation

Upin & Ipin is a Malaysian television series of animated shorts produced by Les' Copaque Production, which features the life and adventures of the eponymous twin brothers in a fictional Malaysian kampung. Originally a side project for the blockbuster animated film Geng: The Adventure Begins, Upin & Ipin was introduced on TV9 in 13 September 2007 as a six-episode Ramadan/Eid special, to instil significance of the Islamic holy month among st children. To date, the series has reached its fourth season, including another Ramadan special season in 1 September 2008 network on TV9, MNC International Malaysia and Disney Channel Malaysia and season three onwards, the year-long, more general themed Upin & Ipin and Friends, the series' international debut via the Disney Channel Asia, but telling the lives of Upin and Ipin with their friends on the normal days.

Upin & Ipin is the title of a short screening series produced by animation company Les' Copaque in Malaysia, and the names of the two main characters of this series. Upin & Ipin a movie spin-offs for the Gang: The Adventure Begins, also featuring the main characters of the animated series. 

First, Upin & Ipin published during the month of Ramadan in the year 2007 AD on TV9 (Malaysia), with the aim of educating the children to appreciate the meaning of the holy month, now spanning four seasons and is not limited to television, but also in the form of video streaming DVD and via the Internet. Upin & Ipin also successfully marketed abroad, especially the neighboring countries of Indonesia.

On the success of regional viewers compelling, Upin & Ipin listed in the Malaysia Book of Records as "Most Successful Animation" in 2011. After the film Gang Upin & Ipin character will star in another film titled cetera Admiral Upin & Ipin which is expected out in 2012.


Upin and Ipin are five-year-old Malay twins who live with their elder sister Ros and maternal grandmother Uda (whom they call Opah) in a wooden house in Kampung Durian Runtuh. They have lost their parents in their infancy. Upin and Ipin study in the village's Tadika Mesra (Friendly Kindergarten), where they befriend a motley bunch of classmates, including the adorable and right-thinking Mei Mei, a jocular and poetic Jarjit Singh, the firm but clumsy and short-tempered Ehsan, an easygoing and sarcastic Fizi (Ehsan's cousin), and an entrepreneurial and meticulous Mail.

The headman of Kampung Durian Runtuh is Isnin bin Khamis, better known as Tok Dalang, the wayang kulit champion. Tok Dalang keeps a cluster of rambutan trees for commercial purposes, and a rooster named Rembo. Among the village's other notable residents are Muthu, owner of the village's only food stall who lives with his animal whisperer son Rajoo and pet steer Sapy; Salleh (Sally), a waspishtransgender-apparent, who owns a mobile library; and Ah Tong, a strident-voiced vegetable farmer. A new character was later added in the series who is an Indonesian girl named Susanti who moved in with her family.


The Upin & Ipin franchise has wielded its influence in countries of the Malay archipelago, notably in Malaysia and Indonesia which share linguistic and cultural similarities. Its first season landed its first award, for Best Animation in KLIFF 2007.

While season two was on air on Ramadan since on 1 September 2008, it was reportedly watched by 1.5 million on TV9 making it the second most-watched animated series on all ofMalaysian television, right behind Doraemon (1.6 mil), yet ahead of SpongeBob SquarePants (800,000). The popularity of Upin & Ipin could have attributed to the commercial success of Malaysia's first CGI-animated feature film, Geng: The Adventure Begins (2009), which featured the twin characters Upin and Ipin, propelling it into the RM 6.31 million mark throughout its seven-week run in Malaysian cinemas as one of the highest-grossing Malaysian language films in history.

As the third season reaches its conclusion in late 2009, TV9 reports that Upin & Ipin was viewed by 1.6 million, making it the second most-viewed programme on the channel, just behind the free television premiere of Geng which was watched by 2.45 million (scoring TVR 12.8).

Indonesia has been the most obvious export market for Upin & Ipin. In 2009, Jakarta TV which airs the series in the republic reported a TVR of 10.5. Upin & Ipin has also been praised by the Indonesian press; for instance, Fadil Abidin for Analisa who remarked on the vastness of moral content and Islamic values, such as respect for those of different ethnic or religious backgrounds, in a communal setting consisting not only of Malays, Chinese and Indian Malaysians, but also Indonesian.

In March 2010, as the Balinese Hindu community prepare for Nyepi, images of ogoh-ogoh (demonic effigies used for the famed ngrupuk ritual on the eve of Nyepi) which largely resemble Upin & Ipin were exposed on Indonesian media. The effigy reportedly cost 4 million rupiah.
