After a successful first season, Snapper Productions’ out of this world animated series Q Pootle 5 has just secured a deal with CBeebies, which gives the network the UK rights to the show’s Christmas special, Pootle All the Way. The 27 minute holiday episode is scheduled to air as part of Cbeebies’ Holiday lineup.
Pootle All the Way follows Q Pootle 5 and his friends as they get ready to enjoy the holiday season, rehearsing for the Christmas pantomime. However, a mayday call interrupts their rehearsal and they suddenly find themselves enmeshed in an epic adventure that will decide the future of Christmas itself.
Q Pootle 5 is based on the best selling line of kids’ books by author/illustrator Nick Butterworth, and features the voices of Ed Gaughan, Joanna Page, Steven Kynman, Richard Ridings and Ella Kenion. Pootle All the Way is produced by Snapper with animation by BAFTA-winning studio Blue-Zoo. The series is distributed by ZDF and has sold to 70 countries worldwide since launching on CBeebies in 2013.
