Puffin Rock moves to newly rebranded Milkshake!

Published on: 27th July 2017

Animated pre-school series will launch this month on Milkshake! as part of refresh.

Award-winning Puffin Rock, narrated by Chris O’Dowd, is launching on Milkshake! as part of the refresh of the popular pre-school block.

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!”

Hoho Rights is managing the UK and international licensing rights for Puffin Rock (excluding China).
