Stylized hand-drawn animations by JonJon

Original music and sound design by Kid Koala


Floor Kids is an original idea by Montreal-based animator and former bboy JonJon. The Floor Kids first appeared in a series of short animated films produced in 2007-2008, featuring original music by Kid Koala, which were shown online and were incorporated in numerous Kid Koala's live concerts. In 2014, JonJon and Kid Koala joined together with Envision and Hololabs to create a video game based on the Floor Kids characters and universe. The team set out to develop a unique break dance video game featuring 2D hand-drawn characters and innovative controls that make you feel like you're dancing along with the character, all to the sounds of Kid Koala's awesome beats.


JonJon, AKA Jonathan Ng, is an award-winning animation filmmaker based in Montreal. His latest film Requiem For Romance, which he wrote, directed and animated in 2012, has toured festivals around the world and recently won the Best Art Direction award at Anima Mundi 2013. Born in Toronto, he studied animation at Sheridan, Seneca, and Concordia University in a variety of hand-drawn, 3D and experimental techniques, and won several Teletoon scholarships throughout his academic career. He wrote, directed and animated his first professional film Asthma Tech at the National Film Board of Canada in 2006 and then went on to co-produce his second film Floor Kids in collaboration with Kid Koala, which went viral in 2007. Jonathan also works as a freelance animator and his feature film credits include The Spiderwick Chronicles, The Mummy 3, The Day of the Crows and the upcoming animated films The Little Prince and A Rigged World.

Kid Koala is a world-renowned scratch DJ, music producer, film composer, video game composer and award winning graphic novelist. He has released six solo albums, the most recent being Music To Draw To: IO featuring Trixie Whitley. He has also released two graphic novels: Nufonia Must Fall and Space Cadet. He has also been involved in collaborations such as Gorillaz, Deltron 3030, and The Slew.

Kid Koala has toured with the likes of Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, Arcade Fire, Money Mark, A Tribe Called Quest, Mike Patton, DJ Shadow, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He has contributed to scores for the films Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Looper, The Great Gatsby and Baby Driver. He has composed music for The National Film Board of Canada, The Winter Olympics, the Cartoon Network, Sesame Street, and Adult Swim. He has also been commissioned to create music for runway shows for Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten. Kid Koala’s unforgettable live shows range from silly touring turntable carnivals like Vinyl Vaudeville (including dancers and giant puppets) to quiet-time events like Satellite Turntable Orchestra, and Nufonia Must Fall, a live animated graphic novel performed, filmed, projected, and scored in real time by a team of 15 using multiple cameras, miniature sets, puppets, a string quartet, and Kid Koala on piano, turntable and percussion.

He lives in Montreal with his wife and two daughters.
