Tree Fu Tom Update

The BBC have released further details about David's new children's TV series, Tree Fu Tom, the Media Centre says:

Tree Fu Tom is a multi-platform, fantasy, action adventure 26x22 minute series which follows the amazing quests of a young boy with magical powers as he takes viewers to Treetopolis, an enchanted world in a tree at the bottom of his garden.
Here, Tom encourages the audience to interact; helping him cast Tree Fu magic spells with gentle, fun physical movements. The movements are designed to assist and enhance the development of all children at a crucial time in their growth, but especially those who have movement disorders and difficulties such as Dyspraxia.
Former Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Sophie Aldred head the cast as the voices for lead characters Tom (Aldred) and Twigs (Tennant) along with their Treeling friends. There’s Zigzoo, a bubbly, eccentric tree frog inventor; Squirmtum, an odd-job woodlouse with a heart of gold and Rickety McGlum, an ex-pro player of Treetopolis’ national sport ‘Squizzle’ (all voiced by Tim Whitnall). There’s also: Ariela (Samantha Dakin), a beautiful but rough-and-tumble ranch-running butterfly and Treetog (Sharon D Clarke), a Tree Fu Master and wise teacher. Set against the Treelings are the mischievous Mushas: comically bungling, no-good fungus fiends, brother and sister duo Stink and Puffy.
Twigs and Tom are inseparable as they become embroiled in amazing, action-packed adventures, which always lead to trouble and impending disaster. When events run beyond their control it is only with help from the audience performing Tree Fu moves, that Tom can create spectacular Big World Magic and save the day!


Tree Fu Tom is a co-production between CBeebies In-House Production and FremantleMedia Enterprises. Daniel Bays is the producer with Jackie Edwards and Alison Stewart executive producing for the BBC, and Sander Schwartz and Bob Higgins for FME. The animation is by BAFTA Award winning Blue Zoo Animation.
