New RTÉjr Animated Television Series ‘Critters TV’ in Production
13 Dec 2018 : News Desk
The unique educational comedy sketch show combines 2D character animation with stunning live-action nature documentary footage.

Critters TV shows the native wild animals of Ireland as you’ve never seen them before - at home, with their feet up, watching wildlife documentaries on TV. Turnip & Duck’s new series is currently in production and due for broadcast on RTÉjr in late 2019. The 15 x 11' comedy series for 4-8 year-olds fuses animation with live action footage, provided by Dublin’s award-winning Crossing The Line Films.

This unique children’s show is brought to you by Aidan O’Donovan, Com Tobin and Ian 'Benjamin' Kenny, the creative team behind the hit RTÉ/CBBC series Brain Freeze, which has been sold worldwide by Aardman Rights. 2D animation on Critters TV will be produced by Lindsey Adams for Daily Madness Productions, and all post-production will be handled by Gorilla Post.

The series is funded by RTÉjr, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and Screen Ireland, with the support of investment incentives for the Irish Film Industry provided by the Government of Ireland.

Pauline Macnamara, Executive Producer for RTÉjr said:

"Kids love to be surprised! Critters TV flips the conventions in a way that will surprise and delight young audiences. It's wildlife but not as we know

Turnip & Duck was established in 2016, bringing together the writing, producing and directing talents of Aidan O'Donovan and Colm Tobin. As well as developing and producing original IP, the duo are also available for hire as writers, script editors, showrunners, and for series development.

‘Critters TV’ is due for broadcast later in 2019.
