Stick Man is a CGI animated half hour Christmas special based on the best-selling and much loved children’s picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. The programme is produced by Magic Light Pictures, the same team behind popular MEDIA-funded shows such as The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and Room on the Broom.

Michael Rose, co-founder, Magic Light Pictures said:

"Martin Pope and I are immensely grateful for the support of Creative Europe. MEDIA funding helped complete Stick Man's budget and enabled us to produce a family special to the highest quality."

Airing on Christmas Day on BBC One in 2015, the special features an all star cast with Martin Freeman, Hugh Bonneville, Jennifer Saunders, Russell Tovey, Rob Brydon and Sally Hawkins lending their voices to the production.
