Why kids will love Master Moley

Featuring timeless animation, a dazzling cast and packed with heart and humour, young school children will adore the adventures of Master Moley.

Created by British entrepreneur James Reatchlous, Master Moley is based upon an original idea he conceived as an imaginative bedtime story for his children.

The animation follows adventurous mole, Master Moley, who lives deep in a burrow under Windsor Castle in the bustling city of MoleTown, where he is the keeper of a magical book which has the power to bring peace between humans and moles. 

The colourful, heart-warming tale follows Master Moley and his friends on adventurous missions, encapsulating a sense of discovery and humour, wrapped in the warmth and comfort of family life. 

“It has been a wonderful experience bringing Master Moley to life,” said Warwick Davis. 

“He is such a delightful and endearing character, and the whole world of MoleTown is enchanting.  To be able to share Master Moley’s adventures with audiences is a joy.”

Creator James Reatchlous said; “The story of Master Moley simply started as a bedtime story for my daughters, but it has been wonderful to see the character brought to life by so many incredible people – from the creative team to the fantastic cast. 

“I couldn’t be happier that so many young viewers will be introduced to Master Moley, and I hope they get as much enjoyment from the stories as my own children did.”
