4-6 years, 40 x 7 minutes
Created by BAFTA winning writing / directing partnership The Brothers McLeod, Circle Square is an animated comedy for children 4-6 about a community of nine houses, each home to a character or family. Vanessa the Dragon, owner of the rainbow lighthouse, helps out with everyday dilemmas and each episode features a different friend in need of her help (and sometimes she needs theirs!) The households in the community include a yeti, a family of emergency service owls, a keyboard and a drum, a family of wizards, a grumpy dog, an elderly adventuring bear and a couple of walking, talking pine trees. Their companionship also extends to neighbouring islands in the archipelago of the Wyndley Isles, and to friends and family who come to visit them. Circle Square is a reflection of society, but seen through the imagination of a child. The show will launch on Channel 5’s Milkshake at the end of next year.
