Cartoon production is finally over and done with on Bino and Fino. It’s taken over a year and a half to get here. I have to thank the talented, hard working young (and not so young!)

To find out when the DVD will be out on sale go to the Bino and Fino website and subscribe to be kept up to date with the latest news.
