Robbie The Reindeer

Andy and Kevin wrote two Christmas Day BBC1 animation specials – ‘Hooves Of Fire’ and ‘Legend of the Lost Tribe,’ both starring Robbie the Reindeer, the son of another very famous red-nosed reindeer. The voice cast includes Ardal O’Hanlon, Jane Horrocks, Harry Enfield, Paul Whitehouse, Ricky Gervais, Caroline Quentin, Ricky Tomliknson and Alistair McGowan. When it aired on American TV, the lead parts were voiced by Ben Stiller and Britney Spears.

Hooves of Fire won the BAFTA for Best Entertainment Programme in 2000.

All the profits from Robbie The Reindeer go to Comic Relief.
