Show Summary

An interactive show for two to five-­year-­olds, Get Squiggling aims to get children drawing. Squiglet the Monster lives in a plain white world, but luckily it doesn’t stay that way for long. Using his Squiggle Sticks and Squiggle Pad, Squiglet draws a variety of characters to join him on his adventures. When the viewers sing the magic words, the characters leap off the page and come to life. Squiglet’s always drawing, creating colourful environments for his characters to enjoy, whether it’s the South Pole for a penguin or a jungle for a tiger. He also helps solve any problem they may encounter, by drawing a new object. Need to find some treasure? Here’s a spade! Need to build a sandcastle? Here’s a bucket. In each 15-­minute programme, Squiglet relies on his young audience to draw along with him and to really immerse themselves in the fantasy worlds he creates.

Main Characters

  • Squiglet the Monster – The presenter of the show, a large woolly creature who loves drawing and filling his plain white world with colour.
