Roobarb and Custard
So passionate in fact is the support for Roobarb and Custard that a poll of Channel 4 viewers actually showed the animated duo to be Britain’s favourite cartoon characters ever; and with regular broadcast across the BBC and more recently on Channel 5’s Milkshake across the decades since its debut, the fanbase for this cult classic extends from children to their parents and their parents’ parents!
Currently airing to the latest generation of fans, the most recent series of 39 x 7’ shows is achieving top ratings for Milkshake as parents tune back in to watch their childhood favourite with their own kids.Targeting both the adult collector with licensed product including greetings cards from Museums and Galleries, apparel from Poetic Gem and canvas wall art from Riviere, the brand also appeals to the kids’ marketplace with lines including publishing from Mogzilla.
