From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 10 March 2019

New Zealand animator Peter Monga and legendary animation company Aardman, of Wallace and Gromit fame,  are joining forces on a TV pre-school series.  All going to plan, it's destined to morph into a game, picture books and toys.

Morgan lives in a rocket house is about a boy marooned with his friends on an alien planet light years from Earth.

It's Peter's idea and is being produced by Auckland children's entertainment company Fuzzy Duckling Media.  But the UK's Aardman likes it so much it's agreed to both develop the series and distribute it. 

Lynn Freeman talks with Peter Monga and Fuzzy Duckling's Chrissy Metge, first asking Peter why he set Mogan adrift on a far away planet.
