The creation of MISTER WHISKERS and his dog SMIGGY has proved to be a sensation.
Since coming into the world of childhood wonder, two music books, four full length videos and four albums in the series have been released.
MISTER WHISKERS and his dog SMIGGY travel the world and if they haven’t travelled over the hills and far away it’s because they travel in a caravan towed behind a tricycle.
MISTER WHISKERS lives in a world of fun, dance, music and songs…….every song is a different colour. The sun, the moon, donkeys, ducks, fish and birds are his friends and if it rains then that’s all the more reason for singing.
When MISTER WHISKERS comes to town flowers wave, cats and dogs dance together and all the children sing, ‘HELLO MISTER WHISKERS’.
Everywhere MISTER WHISKERS goes his little dog SMIGGY goes with him. With one eye blue and one yellow, Smiggy sees the world as a place of fun and play and for anyone who loves fun and play there is no better friend than MISTER WHISKERS.
