Award-winning animated preschool series Puffin Rock will be feathering a new nest when it migrates this month to Channel 5’s Milkshake! programming block in the UK. Narrated by Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids, Moone Boy, The IT Crowd), the 2D series is co-produced by Oscar-nominated studio Cartoon Saloon, Penguin Random House, and kids’ media company Dog Ears.
“We were completely charmed by the sweet characters that occupy Puffin Rock and the artistry of the series,” said Sarah Muller, Head of Children’s Channel 5. “The show will be a fantastic addition to the new-look Milkshake! lineup. Also, I just really love puffins.”
Puffin Rock features an adorable family of puffins, and their laughter-filled adventures on a beautiful Irish island. Oona, and her cute 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. O’Dowd adds an extra twinkle of comedy – sharing funny observations and interesting facts about the natural world.
