About this deal
I just think it’s a masterpiece, and I’m over the moon that I get to be in it,” says Armstrong, before adding with customary flourish: “Well done, squirrels! You’ve earned your excellent children’s entertainment bay-adge!”
Duggee and the Squirrels hop inside the Biology Bus and miniaturise themselves to go on a voyage of discovery inside Enid. Can they find out what’s making her cough?Open the side of the bus for move pretend play: take out the seats and set up the play park. There’s a seesaw for members of Duggee’s Squirrel Club to enjoy, and a swing that clips onto the side. The two figures we include can play all day!
Making Hey Duggee is a highly collaborative experience, says the show’s script editor and writer Jenny Landreth, even if it is ultimately Orchard’s vision. She thinks there’s a misunderstanding about who the show is written for. “People have said to me: ‘It’s clearly a show written for adults that kids also enjoy,’ which is not the case. Our aim is to entertain our young audience. We’re not on some secret mission; nothing is: ‘Wink, wink, this one’s for the grownups.’” Take a trip with Tino the Artistic Mouse high in the sky or on the ocean. There are hundreds of different ways to travel. Sometimes, those characters carry a message: Rochelle in The Making Friends Badge uses a wheelchair, and Mr and Mr Crab are married, although there are no gay rights badges or disability badges. Instead, inclusivity is left as a natural aspect of the show. “It would be disingenuous to say that we didn’t think about inclusivity, but we didn’t want to be preachy with it,” says Orchard. One of the questions he is most commonly asked is: why, when all the mums and dads arrive with their children at the start of each episode, the crocodile Happy has an elephant for a parent. “Most people get that he’s adopted, but I’m pleased we are posing that question, even if we don’t explicitly answer it on the show,” he says.
