Turnip + Duck is an award-winning, writer-led, creator studio that originates, develops, and produces kids’ comedy which is smart, funny, inclusive, and just a tad irreverent. We use story, sound and music to develop original ideas, and collaboration and innovation are core to our creative process.


Creator-Driven Original IP

Turnip + Duck was set up in 2016 by Colm Tobin and Aidan O’Donovan, who have been making each other laugh since they were 8 years old. We have a unique creative shorthand that, when coupled with our knowledge of the industry, makes for irresistible, original, creator-driven IP. 


Story Comes First 

As comedy writers, we’ve created and show ran 3 of our own original series, written over 100 scripts, and our shows have aired all over the world. Every T+D Original needs five elements; a unique hook, something clever that helps audiences grow, funny characters, lots of heart, and of course a killer theme tune! 


Development Specialists 

We specialise in fast prototyping and early user testing to supercharge our ideas at the most important stage. We work with writers, designers, illustrators, animators, story artists, actors, composers and musicians in bespoke development teams that suit each project, and bring them to life as pitchable products in super fast time. 


Smart Co-Pro Models

Because we are not tied to any particular pipeline, our shows can take whatever forms they need to, making us a very co-production friendly studio. In the past we have worked with 2D studios, 3D specialists, nature documentarians and puppet builders to bring our ideas to life. We love to collaborate!
