Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum follows the adventures of Xavier Riddle, his sister Yadina and their friend Brad. In each episode, the three face a problem and must turn to the Secret Museum to help them solve it. The Secret Museum allows the three friends to travel back in time to meet real-life historical figures when they were kids.
Based on the children’s book series Ordinary People Change the World by New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer and illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos, the series introduces kids to inspiring historical figures and the character virtues that helped them succeed.
The adventure-comedy is produced by 9 Story Media Group and animated by the talented artists and crew in our Brown Bag Films Toronto studio. Executive producers on the series are Vince Commisso, Brad Meltzer, Christopher Eliopoulos, Blake Tohana, Fonda Snyder and Rob Weisbach. Season 2 of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum is directed by Brown Bag Films' own Hong Qi (Peg + Cat), with Meghan Read (Dot, Dino Dan) in the role of executive story editor. The look of the show is based on Christopher Eliopoulos’ illustrations featured in the Ordinary People Change the World series.
