Master Raindrop is a children's animated television program produced jointly by Australian, New Zealand and Singaporean companies that first screened on the Australian Seven Network in 2008. There are 26 episodes of 24 minutes duration.[1]


The series begins with personifications of two of the five elements, Raindrop (water) and Shao Yen (wood), training with their Master, Yun, in the ancient art of Chitaido. However the strongest leader in the Land of a Thousand Legends, General Bu, upsets the peaceful world by taking Yun to begin his attempt to capture the four elements after Flamo, the fire element, joins him voluntarily. General Bu does this to stop the elements joining together and defeating him. Master Raindrop and Shao Yen are soon joined by the other two elements: Jin Hou, the metal element (an anthropomorphic golden monkey), and Niwa, the earth element (a humanoid girl who appears to be made of clay). Together they attempt to rescue Master Yun and travel to the place where the golden dragon was defeated and restore him to power.[2]



The series was produced by Big Communications, Flux Animation Studio, Flying Bark Productions, and Media Development Authority. As well as individually by Brent Chambers, Vincent Lim, Geoff Watson and Yasmin McConville. Directed by Susan Oliver, Steve Cooper and Kevin Wotton. It was written by Paul Barber, Kym Goldsworthy, Lisa Hoppe, Brendan Luno, John Mein, Kitty Phipps, Gina Roncoli, James Walker, Anthony Watt and David Witt. Series one consisted of 26 episodes and was produced in 2008[3]


The series has received mixed reviews. It has been accused of copying many of the martial arts and element-related themes in popular children's cartoons like Avatar: the Last Airbender and Xiaolin Showdown.
