Caiman lives at home with his Mum, Dad and older sister in a little wooden house, situated right on the edge of the exotic mangroves where the river meets the sea. All his friends and neighbours live, work and play nearby. There’s always someone to have fun with or somebody to lend a helping hand in Trickle End.
Each day Caiman heads to his playgroup – Manny’s Academy. The terrific thing about Manny’s is that it isn’t just for kids – whether it be for painting or singing, science or dancing, young and old are welcome to join in the fun!
The Rubbish World of Dave Spud
Some seek out adventure; Dave Spud just falls over it…
This edgy and wickedly funny comedy series for ages 6+ combines the bizarre with the humdrum of life in a northern seaside town Grimsby.
Dave Spud’s surroundings appear ordinarily, with each day having the potential to be as dull as dish water (just as Dave likes it), but without fail things always switch to the wildly fantastical whenever Dave least expects it.
Buddy and Elvis
Animated comedy series Buddy and Elvis for ages 5-11 follows an alien duos accidental arrival on earth.
Alien kids Buddy and Elvis have miscalculated the planet’s pecking order and opted for a cat and dog disguise.

But being pets has its advantages; with no school they have plenty of time for exploring, fun and mischief.
