We can’t get enough of the hilarious and adorable little BBC kids, Marion and James who inadvertently gate-crashed their father Professor Robert Kelly’s serious interview.


The kids became the viral hit of the year after they ran into their dad’s study while he was conducting a serious interview about the impeachment of the South Korean president.


Marion, age four, confidently swaggered in, while James, who was nine months at the time, used his walker to bounce in after her.


Dad Robert tried to continue his interview while mum Jung-a-Kim had to literally drag both kids out the door.


Now the tots are inspiring an animated TV show, The Adventures of Mina and Jack, which sees the cartoon alter egos of the dynamic duo follow their parents around the world and get into trouble along the way.



The film was made by New Yorkers Lauren Martin and Jarryd Mandy, who decided to make the pilot show after watching the original clip “upwards of a hundred times.”


They’ve made a pilot episode of the adventure animation which sees Mina and Jack set off to North Africa with their dad where they have to track down a gold thief, according to The Metro.


The adorable animation shows Mina introducing herself and her family and comparing her dad’s face to “someone who’s eaten a bee!”


The pilot sees the intrepid siblings adventure through a souk in North Africa in search of a “red-handed” thief in a bid to help their dad.

The filmmakers are hoping that the cute animations might get picked up by a network to make a full series. Professor Kelly already approves – he posted the clip to his Twitter page and joked: “I look suitably dorky.”



The clip recreates the hilarious moment when mum Jung-a-Kim scrambled to get the kids out of their dad’s study.

Their grandmother Eileen Kelly later revealed that the tots thought their grandparents were calling on Skype and that was the reason for their sudden interruption.


 “Robert usually Skypes with us from his home office, which is where he did the interview”, she told The Mail Online.


“The kids probably heard voices coming from the computer and assumed it was us. It was just hilarious.”


We would love to see The Adventures of Mina and Jack being made into a full animated series – the kids would love it and so would we!
