Danger Mouse & Penfold, Dick & Dom, Tom & Jerry – double acts just keep delighting kids. Discover the secrets of their success with our BAFTA winning panel.
Double acts have formed an essential part of kids TV over the years and are still as relevant today as they were 75 years ago when a certain cartoon cat and mouse made their first appearance.
Find out how double acts work and why they resonate so strongly with the audience with panellists who know both inside out.
Rich McCourt and Dominic Wood, known everywhere as Dick & Dom, shine a light on their long and successful professional partnership. From broom cupboard to BAFTAs – get a unique insight into how their enduring double act developed and see special footage of how it all began.
The panel discusses popular pairings including Tom and Jerry, Gumball and Darwin (The Amazing World of Gumball), Finn and Jake (Adventure Time) and Danger Mouse and Penfold – who return to our screens in a new series of Danger Mouse this Autumn on CBBC.
Head writer Ben Ward talks about how he brought back these classic characters.
Cartoon Network and Cartoonito are home to a number of perennially popular double acts – Turner Broadcasting’s Patricia Hidalgo talks about classic characters “old” and “new”.
