Multi award-winning hit animation Hey Duggee will begin its new series on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer on September 5th as we learn all about the Squirrels’ first days at the Clubhouse.
Five special episodes released daily on CBeebies will reveal what happened when each Squirrel visited Duggee for the very first time as children in England and Wales prepare for their first days at school.
The First Day Badge episodes are included in 20 new episodes released on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer from the fourth series of the much-loved show, made by Studio AKA.
Hey Duggee is a fun, inclusive and educational series devised by Grant Orchard, senior director of Studio AKA, and narrated by comedian Alexander Armstrong. Each episode features members of the Squirrel Club exploring, learning and overcoming challenges to earn a new Badge from Duggee – making new friends along the way.
Since launching in 2014, Hey Duggee has become a six-time BAFTA and international Emmy award-winning hit on CBeebies and was the most-watched kids’ show on BBC iPlayer in 2021 and 2020. All episodes of Hey Duggee are available exclusively on BBC iPlayer in the UK. Additionally, Hey Duggee has over 1.2 million fans across its social channels and its official YouTube channel has over a billion lifetime views.
