Furry Story is an anarchic 3D cgi tale of Fredglob the foulmouthed goblin and his wacky human and goblin friends, and is produced by The Brothers Dimm, Magic Stone Productions, and the BBC Northern Ireland. Jason Robertson created Furry Story in the eighties as a children’s tale, but late developed the script for a more adult audience. “Aiming the animation at the adult market means we get away with a lot of humour that would be edited out in kids programming.” says Robertson. The animation has been described as “ET from Hell” and “Shrek meets Southpark”. The story tells of a little girl, Janey, and her escape from feuding parents, and her adventures with her not-so-imaginary goblin friend Fredglob.
