Animated pre-school series will launch this month on Milkshake! as part of refresh.
Puffin Rock follows a family of puffins and their adventures on a beautiful Irish island. Oona and her little brother Baba explore, play and learn with their friends, and always make it home in time for a fish supper with Mama and Papa. Narrator, Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, Moone Boy, The IT Crowd) adds comedy, and shares observations and interesting facts about the natural world.
Puffin Rock was co-produced by Oscar-nominated studio Cartoon Saloon, Penguin Random House, and children’s media company, Dog Ears.
Sarah Muller, head of children’s Channel 5, commented: “We were completely charmed by the sweet characters that occupy Puffin Rock and the artistry of the series. The show will be a fantastic addition to the new-look Milkshake! lineup.”
Richard Haines, head of acquisitions & TV development, Penguin Random House Children’s, added: “I am delighted that our little puffins are flying on to Milkshake!”
