Each episode follows the day-to-day adventures of farmyard animals. The show uses a combination of live action and animation that lends the series its distinctive character and humour, and taps into children's love of animals in a truly unique way.
The dramas are simple and entertaining, producing an utterly magical world as the secret life of the animals is revealed.
Children see this world entirely from the animals' perspective via a narrator, with stories centred around playing, learning, discovering and mischief.
