Hey Duggee: The Wedding Badge and 10 other stories DVD (review + giveaway E: 10 July 2018)
If you are a parent of a preschooler or primary school child, you are surely familiar with Hey Duggee. This charming cartoon has become something of a world-wide phenomenon and has acquired a huge following.
It's based on a simplistic repetitive formula including five animal kids who go to a pre-school playgroup named The Squirrel Club. It is run by an oversized dog called Duggee. There is always a big group hug at the end of each episode.
The animation is stylised, bright and imaginative. And it's genuinely funny, you'll find yourself giggling and laughing aloud.
If you happened to watch TV in the early hours on the day of the Royal Wedding, you might have watched a different kind of wedding - King Tiger met his perfect partner and was getting married on May the 19th in a brand new episode called Hey Duggee: The Wedding Badge.
This event was anticipated almost as much as the Royal Wedding, and the bride's identity was kept secret until then.
As it happens, the bride is nothing like Meghan, she is a more traditionally built lady, with a dirty laugh and a huge appetite.
The squirrels play at the clubhouse, when the wedding invitation arrives for Duggee and his wards.
As the ceremony begins, the bride is nowhere to be seen. What's happened? Did she have second thoughts and ran away?
The squirrels go on a mission to find the bride and save the day.
There are some rather grown-up jokes popping in, with double entendre, for example, King Tiger is saying to his bride: "My darling, you look so fruity!"
The Wedding Badge is available from 9 July on a DVD.
The other episodes in the latest DVD include: The Voice Badge, The Island Badge, The Sleeping Badge, The Brave Banana Badge, The Water Badge, The Traffic Badge, The Dressing Up Badge, The Getting On Badge, The Grandparents Badge and The Organising Badge.
The full running time of the DVD is 70 minutes.
That's 70 minutes of jolliness and happiness.
