by Alex Garfath and Sarah-Jane Wingrove.
Inspired by the true story of Great British inventor and eccentric Arthur Paul Pedrick. Following his retirement as a patent examiner, Arthur began inventing. Ably assisted by his pet cat Ginger, he received approval for over 160 UK patents that he thought would solve some of mankind’s biggest problems including a cat-flap that doubled as a global nuclear deterrent.
'Patent Pedrick' is an absolute joy to watch, with the company finding seemingly endless ways to tell the story. ...this show is a real treat, with a quiet little gut punch of an ending. Animations Online Review
