Get Squiggling! is based around a friendly monster called Squiglet who loves to draw. He lives in a white world; however it doesn’t stay white for long. With the help of his Squiggle Pad (paper) and Squiggle Sticks (pencils), Squiglet shows the audience how to draw magical characters that leap off the page and come to life! We meet a new character in each episode and Squiglet uses his Squiggle Sticks to build the world around them – a lush vegetable patch for a caterpillar, an icy snow cave for a snowman or a strange alien planet for a spaceman. Get Squiggling! is a unique interactive series for preschoolers with a fantastical mix of full body puppetry, animation and live action.
