Meet Duggee, a big lovable dog who runs ‘The Squirrel Club’; an activity club for pre-schoolers that inspires children to have fun, be energetic, and – most of all – to do things!
Devised by director Grant Orchard, Hey Duggee is the multi BAFTA & Int. EMMY winning pre-school series created and produced entirely at Studio AKA for Cbeebies & BBC Studios. Duggee and the Squirrels take part in all kinds of activities, have adventures and earn badges for their accomplishments. Each episode shows the squirrels completing an activity or adventure relating to a badge, that the squirrels earn at the end of the episodes. Duggee teaches the kids about being responsible, working as a team, taking acceptable risks and most importantly … having fun!
Now in its fourth series, it enlists the warmth and charm of critically acclaimed comedian Alexander Armstrong who narrates the playful series alongside an outstanding cast of kids in the main roles. Come and visit Duggee, and maybe you’ll be going home with a badge too!
