Mustard & Ketchup

MUSTARD & KETCHUP is an animated sitcom for children (7-10).

Welcome to Melestropolis, the great badger city. Dug out with claws and shovels by generations of proud badgers, it’s a place of hard work and industry, order and respect.
It’s certainly not a place to be an entertainer, for as the saying goes, ‘Badgers dig, they don’t sing’. Which is a shame, because singing, dancing and bringing sunshine is exactly what Mustard & Ketchup want to do.

Our two humble heroes believe the world needs music, laughter and a touch of showbiz now and again, and who better to provide it than them? While other badgers are happy watching ‘Guess the Cement’ and attending ‘The Tile Stacking Society Dinner’, Mustard & Ketchup dream of singalongs and slapstick.

Mustard & Ketchup are two black-and-white heroes injecting colour into the world wherever they go.

Mustard & Ketchup directed a music video for Mute Records which was nominated for Best Animation at the Celtic Media Festival Awards 2018, and listed as one of the top 10 British Animated Music Videos by Anim18.
Mustard & Ketchup are beneficiaries of a BFI Young Audiences Content Fund award for development.
