Originally filmed in a woodland location, TX crew were challenged by the numerous stoats, weasels, rabbits and other wildlife that took an interest in the kit, often mistaking it for food! Filming involved re-scaling the characters live on location to ensure Iggle Piggle, Macca Pakka, the Haahoos, Pontipines and other characters could interact and view each other at the relative size they would later appear on screen.
Other collaborations between TX and Ragdoll Limited include the BAFTA winning Teletubbies, which can now be seen in more than 10 countries and territories around the world.
