Winner - British Animation Awards 2024

Rats! They’re everywhere… In the bread bins, dancing across the tabletops, stealing pies from under the cook’s noses. So, what does every town need? A good piper to lure them Away.

That’s where Maurice, a streetwise tomcat with the perfect money-making scam, comes in.

Everyone has heard of the stories about the pied piper and the town full of rodents. So, Maurice has found his very own pied piper and a plague of rats to trick gullible townsfolk into giving him lots of cash.

All is going well until they arrive in the far-flung village of Bad Blintz where they meet a book obsessed girl called Malicia, who enlists their help to solve the mystery of her town …. Featuring the voices of Emilia Clarke and Hugh Laurie, this flipped-on-its-head fairy tale is one of a kind, pure fun for all audiences.

Adapted from ‘The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents’ by Sir Terry Pratchett, which won the Carnegie Medal in 2001.
