Raj The Rambling Radiator
The story ‘Raj the Rambling Radiator’ was the first film we made, and it involved a lot of experimentation since up until this point, we were still learning how to rig up digital puppets. Raj’s animated puppet was our first so his design and movement is pretty basic.
Although Raj’s cartoon is very simple and lacking in finesse this only adds to its charm and his bedtime story remains a personal favourite.
Raj’s personality traits: Kind, generous, thoughtful, caring
Raj name meaning: A boys name from the Sanskrit raja, meaning “king”. Raj name on Wikipedia

Wally The Wobbling Wellington
Wally the Wobbling Wellington is one of the principal characters featured in the original (1980) first six books published by Thurman Publishing (Mr Men). Wellingtons come in pairs which means they’re identical. Or are they?
They are identical but like brothers – like twins – they have different personalities. Wally has a brother called Willy who is irritatingly clean, tidy and in the right place.
Wally, on the other hand, is always the wellie that’s lost or muddy. This is because he’s ticklish and lives in fear of THE SOCKS! But there is a cure and that cure involves washing – apparently the cure for everything.

Zac The Zealous Zucchini
Zac is pure theatre. He’s one of those conceited ‘wanna-be’s’ ( wannabe - A person who wants or aspires to be someone or something else or who tries to look or act like someone else) who really thinks he’s got talent.
The problem with these theatrical types is that they tend to be both delusional and highly irritating particularly when they never stop performing. Zac’s crowning glory – literally – is the large flower which grows out of his head.
It flounces and waves as if it has a life of its own which – in many respects – it probably has. By the way, zucchini is an Italian name for a courgette which, in the real world, in nothing more than a marrow in the making. Not many people like marrows…
Zealous word meaning. Zealous, A person is someone who has a passion for what he or she is doing and shows it when they do it. Known to become quite excited.
Zac name meaning. Zac comes from the Hebrew word Zakhar meaning to remember. Zac's name meaning on Wikipedia
