Tom's Grizzly Tales

Tom McLaughlin  Background and Character Styling  The New Series

Grizzly Tales is by far and away one of the most original shows on television. I can’t think of any other kids’ series past or present which has such a spiralling body-count; nor one which features so many internal organs; bile being expelled at high velocity nor gangs of marauding pensioners on mobility scooters.

My favourite moment from the new series was the time one of the villains was about to go at a naughty child with a chainsaw, when it was pointed out that there was something deeply wrong with the scene: the said villain should at least be wearing safety goggles. That marvellously sums up the macabre humour and joyful absurdity of Grizzly Tales and I cant wait to see it go to air.
