PEW36 Animation Studios is a multi-award winning animation studio in Southampton, England. PEW36 produces high end animation, live action and visual effects for music videos, adverts, commercials and feature films.
Why PEW36? 
Studio founder Adam Comiskey chose the studio's name "PEW36" for two reasons
1) To emulate the periodic table idea; to cover all the 'elements' of animation
2) It is the name of Marvin the Martian's space ray; The Illudium Pu-36 Explosive Space Modulator http://www.gargaro.com/MaRvInWaVs/stolen.wav

Tchokis / Toys 
In 2009 PEW36 Animation Studios expanded into toy production. The first was a range of rabbit-like characters called Thockis. Tchokis were initially only available in white and brown but have since emerged with blue, silver, purple and concrete finish. The coveted Gold Tchoki is available in strictly limited numbers.
Tchokis have developed a somewhat cult following with Tchoki owners creating an online presence for the sought after creatures.
Artists worldwide have taken to customising their Tchokis; from paint jobs to intricate re-models. PEW36 Animation Studios awards prizes to the most original and/or creative customizations.
Members of PEW36 Animation Studios are affectionately called "PEWbs"; the term was coined by studio founder Adam Comiskey.
