Oh, the joys of the internet, look what we found on amazon UK:  Starting Oct. 1st you can apparently order both “The Gruffalo” and “The Gruffalo’s Child” in one sweet looking tin suitcase, just big enough for a Mouse-sandwich and a piece of Gruffalo-crumble, once you’ve removed the DVD’s. Nice!

Christmas Day? The Gruffalo’s Child!

December 24th, 2011


In anticipation of “The Gruffalo’s Child”, directed by Johannes Weiland and Uwe Heidschoetter, the BBC had kindly asked us to produce this little, gruffalo-themed christmas ident, directed by Jakob Schuh, which they’ve aired the hell out of, we’ve been told, these past few weeks. Thank you, BBC! Well, the wait is almost over, you can finally watch “The Gruffalo’s Child” tomorrow, Dec. 25th, 06.30pm, and then again Dec. 26th, 09.35 am on BBC1. We wish you a Merry Christmas!
