    "Sarah and Duck!"

    Sarah is a super-inquisitive young girl exploring the big wide world around her
    house and hometown with her quacking best friend Duck. Now, as everyone
    knows, when you're very young, unravelling the mysteries of life can be very
    exciting, fantastic and wonderful indeed and Sarah and Duck are soon
    taking themselves off on surreal tangential flights of fancy to meet jolly articulate
    flora and fauna, elemental beings and lively houshold objects as they attempt
    to make sense of our wonderful world. Even our friendly Narrator joins in
    with the fun, breaking the Fourth Wall to cajolel and to steer the exploration
    onwards. Throw in a dotty little ditty of a theme song that has us repeating
    the series title over and over, with a quack at the end of each repetition and
    - well - you've got yourself a wide-eyed little series that's an absoloute delight
    from start to finish.

     "Sarah & Duck" (Karrot Entertainment)

    Sarah, Duck and their friends were created by Sarah Gomes Harris and
    Tim O'Sullivan and brought to life via Jamie Badminton and Karrot Animation.
    It's Karrot's first fully-fledged series commission and it's a real firecracker,
    with some fantastic flights of fancy and fabulous design. Think Crystal Tipps
    and Doris, if you will, because there's something of a Q3 spirit about this one.
    And Charlie and Lola's  joie de vivre is here too. But this is no copycat series.
    "Sarah and Duck" is its' own whimsical wonderful thing.

    Sarah came first

    So where did our little girl /little duck partnership come from, exactly? - The
    originators revealed some of the background info over on the BBC's web site.
    Apparently Sarah Gomes Harris worked up a drawing of our female lead whilst
    trying to come up with other ideas on another show. She and Tim would then
    joke about this girl having a Duck as her best friend and that they would live
    together and fly around in a bi-plane. Sarah then worked up the first ever
    drawing of Sarah and Duck, and off they flew...

    Roger, Roger

    The series is narrated by actor Roger Allam (V for Vendetta, The Iron Lady).
    He's known for portraying somewhat blustering, bowdlerizing society types.
    But here we encounter his softer side, and it's a treat for the ears. His narration
    really is caramel delicious...
