The Rubbish World of Dave Spud – Olden Days

The misadventures of underdog Dave Spud and his family. They embark on some extraordinary expeditions along with the likes of Gareth the Starfish and one eyed flea ridden Fuzzypeg the dog.

The series intention of the UK produced ‘The Rubbish World of Dave Spud’ is to be very funny whilst embracing all, treat everyone equally, and to find the magic in the ordinary.

In this episode, a faulty television remote rewinds the Spuds back to the olden days, where everything is black and white, everyone is a puppet and there is a giant biscuit on the rampage.

This script’s intention was to give a different perspective of going back in time. While having the fun time travel element, we also wanted to involve the viewers with how they saw the timeline setting. Creating the black and white visual and playing with the concept of original film techniques such as the zoetrope and puppets was a fun way to showcase the ‘olden days’ and hopefully giving an insight for kids into how filming has progressed.

Technically, the use of animation software CelAction2D allows us to be ambitious with the animation within the limited budgets of children’s TV series, pushing especially the unique designs that Dave Spud and family entail. The team of animators based in Cardiff have managed to bring ‘show stopper’ big screen moments to the small screen for kids, giving them a movie like experience.
