Join fantastic journeys through colourful new worlds

This vibrant and charming blend of live-action and animation is built around the tall tales and silly nonsense of Grandpa who, in each episode, whisks one of his four grandchildren away on his sofa into colourful new worlds, answering their questions with outlandish, humorous answers.

Along the way, the children encounter fantastic tales of mini pigs, hairoplanes and an animal orchestra! Thankfully, next to Grandpa on the sofa sits Halifax; a (puppet) rabbit the children can trust. After Grandpa’s silly story, Halifax sets the record straight with the real answer, delivered in an entertaining and informative style that captures imaginations and sparks curiosity. It’s the perfect marriage of giddy nonsense and educational content.
