So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish...

Model Robot has teamed up with Oceana across the pond to save all the ugly fish of the world!
We all know that if you're beautiful one can simply sail through life without a care in the world...riches, fame and love are your oyster, but what about those less fortunate than ourselves?
Who cares for all the ugly fish left behind?
Us. We care...deeply...and so to the drawing board/wacom tablet to make the world just that little bit of a nicer place to live in, and help our friends in the oceans.

Coming to a shore near you, soon...

School's Out

What Makes you Smile-Nick JR

'What Makes you Smile?', that's what Geoff Parson's at Nick Jr wanted to know, so we travelled out to Richmond Park and asked six children just what exactly made them smile?. The results were astounding!, totally unexpected and currently to be found on-air over at Nick JR:

Puddles and Plants, Rocket and Kite, Dog and Duck (and no it's not a pub!)

Don't worry if we haven't animated what makes YOU smile...there is still time...answers on a postcard/email...

We've had a couple of requests to see the whole of 'My Friend Marjorie', after missing the recent Channel 4 screenings, so here it is.

Kula Shaker 'Drink Tea For The Love Of God'

Kula Shaker 'Drink Tea For The Love Of God' Model Robot were asked to create this promo to help celebrate national Tea Day (December 15th!) and re-affirm this nations love of the leaf.

George Orwell heroically narrates us through a world of coffee fuelled repression as we watch the 'Tea Angels' finally overcome the forces of Evil, bringing love and harmony to the universe.

Easy Easy Easy

Easy Easy Easy, a short nostalgic animated film for Channel 4 detailing the joys of British Wrestling and it's eventual downfall from our screens at the tail-end of the 1980's.
