‘I’m Stick Man, I’m Stick Man, I’m Stick Man, that’s me! And I long to be back in the family tree.’ Parents of little ones will need no introduction to our woody hero, but for the uninitiated Stick Man is the story of one stick’s struggle for survival.

First shown on Christmas Day last year, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s enchanting tale is such a delight it’s well worth another watch. When Stick Man goes out for a jog one spring morning, he unwillingly gets involved in a game of fetch for a dog, which sends him on a journey far from home.

As the seasons pass and he ends up further away, things look bleak for the plucky twig.

Will he make it home in time for Christmas?

The voice cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Jennifer Saunders and Rob Brydon.
