MIKE SCOTT – Happy Land

Mister Heavy would like to reach for his friends on Happy Island, but he don’t know how to cross the sea. Mister Sun will come and shine some wisdom on the poor fellas.

Happy Land is a 2D animated kids show. Quite creepy, if you ask me, in the way I feel Teletubbies are creepy.

Featured here is the pilot episode created and animated in 2007 by Mike Scott at Bru & Boegie. Voices by Toko Moeketsi and story and music by David Scott.
