Horrible Science – Series1

Horrible Science is a brand new ten-part comedy entertainment series for CITV, Based on the tremendously popular children’s books, written by Nick Arnold and illustrated by Tony De Saulles and published by Scholastic.

Each episode has a central scientific theme (Gruesome Guts, Vicious Veg, Bulging Brains, Chemical Chaos etc) which is explored with comedy sketches, experiments, animations and songs.

To help illustrate the many complex scientific themes and brand the series, we created the animated stings and sketches that help to bring the Horrible Science illustrations to life and glue the show together.

Aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 12, the ten-part series is produced by Toff Media and Hat Trick Productions, and has been jointly funded by ITV, the Wellcome Trust, ABC Australia, and Discovery Asia.

Horrible Science delights in the messy, gory and macabre, but as well as wallowing in all things yucky, it is full of fascinating science.
