In The Night Garden is a BBC children's television series created by the makers of the Teletubbies. Much like the Teletubbies, its target audience is predominantly babies and preschoolers. The show is narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi and was created with the intention of both entertaining and relaxing its target audience. It is most often aired as part of the Cbeebies bedtime hour and, according to its creator Anne Wood, was designed to "... explore the difference between being asleep and being awake from a child's point of
view: the difference between closing your eyes and pretending to be asleep and closing your eyes and sleeping".
The Night Garden is a surreal dream like place where its colourful inhabitants play games and have adventures. The characters themselves are a combination of computer animations, puppets and actors in costumes. The characters communicate with each other using short, limited but repetitive phrases or sounds, some of which are in a completely made up language. The main characters are: Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka, The Tombliboos and the Pontipines.
In each episode we see Igglepiggle travel to the Night Garden on his boat.
Igglepiggle goes to visit the Night Garden and the inhabitants that live there. He always has his red blanket with him and he always leaves the Night Garden at the end of each episode. Although we do not hear Igglepiggle speak he does have a bell in his left foot, a rattle in his hand and a squeak in his tummy. Igglepiggle goes on adventures with Upsy Daisy. Both Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy feature on the In The Night Garden duvet set available as part of our In The Night Garden bedroom range.
Upsy daisy is a rag doll that lives in the Night Garden and dresses in a very pretty combination of colours, she also has colourful hair that can stand on end! She has an inflatable tutu and a beautiful bed that she often has to chase around the Night Garden! Upsy daisy likes to say "Upsy Daisy" and "Daisy Doo!". She loves singing, dancing and pretty flowers!
Igglepiggle also visits Makka Pakka in the Night Garden. Makka Pakka is quite small and loves stones. Perhaps not surprisingly, he has a stone bed and likes to cuddle a stone at night and he also likes cleaning, drying and stacking his stones. He pushes his stones around the garden in his trolley which is called the Og-Pog.
There are three Tombliboos that live in The Night Garden. They are all Unn, Ooo and Eee (to sound like one, two and three). They have spotty and stripy trousers which often hang on a washing line outside the bush in which they live.
In The Night Garden you will also find the Pontipines. Dressed in red this small family of ten wooden doll like characters live in a semi detached house next to the elusive Blue Wottingers. The Pontipines' parents spend a great deal of their time looking for their children. In each episode the Pontipines are repeatedly counted, One Pontipine, two Pontipine, three Pontipine, etc.. this helps children learn to count to ten.
In The Night Garden you will also find the Ninky Nonk. The Ninky Nonk has five different shaped carriages and transports the characters around the Nigh Garden. Also you will find the Pinky Ponk, which is an airship the inhabitants of The Night Garden use to fly around the forest.
