Blue Rocket Productions is an award winning animation studio that creates and produces children’s television, interactive and mobile media.

Established 15 years ago by Alicia Rackett and David Gurney, the studio began using a solitary kerosene powered alarm clock and operating from a wet cardboard box on an abandoned railway siding. Using nothing more than four crayons (three of them were the same colour), Blue Rocket went on to produce some completely astonishing cartoon series and a number of quite impressive sponge cakes, one of which came fourth in the 2001 Central Tasmanian Cake and Gun Festival.

Not content to rest on their laurels, the Blue Rocket team went from strength to strength. In 2004 the studio won the prestigious Tasmanian Dog Stacking Competition but was later disqualified for using Staffordshire Terriers instead of the regulation Fox Terriers.
