Goodbye Sparkle Friends!

For those of you who have followed Mukpuddy for a few years there's a good chance you know we make an animated series called, "Sparkle Friends". We started making Sparkle Friends back in 2006 and much to our surprise have since have created 43 episodes.

Sparkle Friends plays within a kids variety show in New Zealand called, What Now. This year was What Now's 30th Birthday and we thought it was a good opportunity to make a Sparkle Friends one-off special that, while playing tribute to What Now, also marked the end for the Sparkle Friends (a "good" end... not a "death" end, sillies!!).

Seeing as the cast of Sparkle Friends has changed over the years, each time coinciding with new presenters appearing on What Now, we thought it was only fitting to bring back all the old Sparkle Friends for a final adventure. We also thought it would be nice to cameo some old school What Now presenters from when we were kids.

Working on Sparkle Friends has been quite the experience and one that has really shaped Mukpuddy into the studio we are today. 43 episodes was an awesome run and one that we thought deserved an epic send off... So that's what we did!
