We wanted to create some fun characters with animals chasing one another around in an old- fashioned comedy caper. We also took inspiration from the Warner Brothers character Roadrunner and a million and one other cartoons we watched as kids.
I think it’s a big part of the appeal. If I was to get all pretentious about it, I could say it has a touch of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, with the animals taking over the farm. But it’s probably closer to a Tom and Jerry cartoon, with the slapstick nature of the presentation happily masking what could be a bit more sinister if we all thought about it for too long.
Many of our earliest memories revolve around farmyard animals. Its sometimes worth concentrating on a cartoon version of them rather the dwelling on the reality!
