Charming adventures of Muffin set to deft musical arrangements
3rd & Bird is quite the most charming production on children's TV.
The songs and their musical arrangements (Jeffrey Lesser) are a joy to experience. The show centres on young Muffin, a kind and touchingly melancholic love bird, and her caring friends in a tree community. The show is a blend of songs and effortless revue musical arrangements which, whilst clearly compelling to a three year old, are equally appealing to any adult with a keen interest in music.
It's hard to understand why it didn't develop much beyond CBBC though I suspect that this show was a labour-of-love to make. It must have been a blast to be part of the creative team.
Some of the original creators were behind Wonder Pets and Small Potatoes yet, to this critic, those shows, though adequate, lack the magic and warmth of 3rd & Bird.
