The DVD will be out on the 26th March.
One of the most popular episodes of hit pre-school show Hey Duggee, which airs on CBeebies, is fronting its first DVD for the series. Hey Duggee The Stick Badge & Other Stories is the eighth addition to the series’ home entertainment collection and is filled with laughter, learning, and exciting activities at the adventure club. As well as the DVD, the title will also be available to own digitally.
In the episode Hey Duggee: The Stick Badge, Duggee and the Squirrels are preparing to have a campfire when Roly discovers a talking stick insect instead of a wooden stick. The insect starts repeatedly saying “stick” – some music starts playing – and then the entire episode descends into a hilarious rave that has become a zeitgeist moment among parents and children alike. The Stick Song has been viewed over 5m times on Hey Duggee’s social channels since the episode first premiered on CBeebies in December 2017.
The Stick song phenomena has also inspired family rave project Rave-a-Roo, the biggest kids rave in town, to host a live, interactive version of The Stick Song for families on Saturday 24th March at the Ministry of Sound. Expert dancers will teach children and adults dance moves to the catchy tune. A Duggee costume character will also be there, hosting a meet and greet. Visit www.rave-a-roo.com to book tickets.
Additionally, the official Hey Duggee magazine, published by Immediate Media, has a Special Stick Badge Issue on sale from 21st March until 1st May. A Stick themed front cover, a kit for children to make their own stick, and a double page spread showing Stick dance moves are all included.
