Humf is a British animated children's television program featuring a "furry thing" called Humf. The show centres on the title character and his daily life with his friends and family. The show, each episode of which is about 7 minutes long, is produced by King Rollo Films and Rubber Duck.[1] It is narrated by Caroline Quentin and it is broadcast on Nick Jr. and Nick Jr. 2 in the UK and Ireland, ABC in Australia (15 December 2008 - 30 August 2015) and CBeebies in some international countries.[2]

Main Characters[edit]

Humf

Humf is the main character and is the best mate of Wallace and Loon. Humf lives in the middle flat with Wallace at the top of him and Loon at the bottom of him. Humf is a furry thing and is also short, round,cuddly and very curious about the world around him. He has a rather square shaped toy named Crispy Cakehead

Wallace

Wallace is a green hairy thing who runs around a lot and often ruins games on Humf and Loon, though not deliberately. He laughs quite a lot, too, and lives on the very top floor of the 3-story building. He always says hello more than once and his other catchphrase is saying things are his "favourite thing". He also likes to play supertiger (Wallace Gets Very Cross), elephants. & Falling Down (Humf & Wallace Fall Down). He is best friends with Humf and Loon.

Loon

Loon is a pink feathery thing who lives in the flat below Humf. She likes to go out to the park and the supermarket, most of the time with her friends Humf and Wallace, along with her mother. She is the only one of the three friends who has yet to be shown a father. She is also described as being a snob as she always gets her own way.

Places[edit]

The characters homes

Most episodes will spend some time in one or another of the main characters flats.

The park

Often, episodes will spend some time in a local park which is within walking distance of the flats and involves crossing a road to get there. The park has play equipment as well as a sand pit and green open spaces to run around in.

Typical plot[edit]

In general, plots are centred on Humf and his exploration of the world. An example would be when Humf and his friends go to the park and see litter on the floor. They discuss it and then start to pick it up and put it in the bin with increasing vigour. Humf's mum interrupts when he goes to pick up a banana skin and explains that to be safe they should not attempt to pick up all litter as some is yucky.

Other details[edit]

The series is aimed at pre-school children and was created by Andrew Brenner, directed by Neil Fitzgibben and produced by Alexi Wheeler.
