Animated Adventures Of Herbie Hound's 'Specialness' Takes Children's Stories By Storm!

Animated Adventures Of Herbie Hound's 'Specialness' Takes Children's Stories By Storm!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brought to life by the animation skills of World renowned Superstar Pets, Herbie Hound is a new animated series following the adventures of adorable Herbie - a French breed of pup with a British upbringing whose very special character 'specialness' comes out when things get exciting!

Superstar Pets, have previously worked on animations for BBC Children in Need, Simon Cowell and Michael Ball among others. They are the only company in the World who create movies using this animation technique, using the unique approach of animating photos to talk and sing, lending an extra layer of charm to Herbie Hound's adventures.

The series is the brainchild of Vicky Brook, a mother whose life took a dramatic turn when she had to unexpectedly give up a six-figure executive salary and high powered job to care full time for her youngest daughter Florence.

Florence, now 16, has had complex medical and mental health needs since the age of just six weeks, while older sister Emily, 21, was diagnosed at 17 with Addisons Disease.

Over the years, Vicky has relied heavily on the help of Birmingham Children's Hospital for support with Florence, Vicky is also very excited that the Dogs Trust are supporting the project, acknowledging the important therapeutic role that family dogs can have in times of distress, and in her search for ideas to give something back for all their hard work she hit upon the concept of an animated series starring their very own family dog Herbie.

"Dogs Trust is delighted to be teaming up with Herbie Hound. He has been an amazing companion and friend to Vicky and her children and demonstrates the bond between us and our dogs. The tale of Herbie will hopefully provide a happy distraction for hundreds of children whilst in hospital and bring a smile to their faces, just as it did ours." - Hannah Baker, Dogs Trust

The series will be launched in London with the help of Pop Star Natasha Hamilton of Atomic Kitten who was touched by Vicky's tale:

"I heard about Vicky's story, and the inspiration behind creating this very special Herbie Hound character, it really struck a chord with me. When I saw the first animated episode I was blown away, it's wonderful. I'm really pleased and excited to be asked to help with the launch and the series deserves to be a great success"

To launch Herbie Hound's story, Natasha will be available for photo opportunity and interview at the Dorchester Hotel in London on the 16th April 11.0 am - 1.0 pm.

The animated series will also be accompanied by storybooks starring Herbie Hound on his many adventures.

All ten episodes of the new series will be available to purchase on the Herbie Hound website, shortly followed by the story books, with a percentage of the proceeds going to Dog's Trust & Birmingham Children's Hospital.

And with plans also underway for a merchandising range, these 10 Herbie Hound adventures are just the beginning!
