“The Lighthouse and the Lock” is aimed at boys and girls aged 4 – 7 but we wanted the show appeal to older kids too. We achieved this by making the concept simple and the characters immediately understandable. We made a world of bright colours and turned our humour dial to, “intensely repetitive slapstick mode” giving us a perfect set up for a 4 – 7 year olds show.

Then to attract the older audience, we threw in an older character, Sloth. At odds with the younger-skewed world and cursed with a short temper, Sloth represented and championed the kids who find their younger siblings ultra-annoying.

We think it worked rather well.
