Rude Word

First published: Thursday 28th August 2014

The Bruvs go all potty mouth as they insist on keeping up standards in the family. They have to teach someone a lesson - and where better to go than their old lock-up where, over the years, they have had many a chat with colleagues and rivals alike?


Half Baked

First published: Tuesday 10th February 2015

The Bruvs go all arty farty in pursuit of culture. At an Art Gallery they offer their very special interpretation of the works on show. They may be no oil paintings themselves but when it comes to art, they know what they like. And they like what they know. Which, it turns out, isn't very much.


Going Postal

Christmas Message

First published: Friday 11th December 2015

The Bruvs go all festive - even though they do not really understand the meaning of the Season of Goodwill. In a film hardly designed at all to cash in on the spirit of Christmas, Doug and Den and all The Bruvs family do their best to work out the difference between their Xmas and their baubles. Unwrap this jolly jape and try to be good for Santa...Or else!


Paint Job

In a feast for the ears and eyes, The Bruvs offer up their unique take on a music promo. It's kind of Lip Synch Battle meets Drop The Mic as The Bruvs weave an intricate blend of artfully crafted lyrics - that some might call poetry - with a banging tune. It's a Mega Mix of Mega Proportions that hits all the right notes - and a few other things as well.


Theme Song and Opening Titles

First published: Tuesday 29th November 2016

The Bruvs add to their criminal record with this, their very own theme song. Giving some of the family's back story and helping to introduce all the characters, this short film also doubles as an Opening Titles sequence for future films.

Talking With Dinosaurs

First published: Monday 24th April 2017

The Bruvs show if they known their Jurassic Parks from their elbows in a film that combines natural history documentary with reality TV - and a startling revelation about the lovely Chanterelle. An evening in front of the flatscreen gets heavy - very heavy - when Doug and Den start to discuss prehistoric beasts. What will they dig up? Who has a bone to pick with whom? All is revealed as we discover the new species of Ptera-Doug-tyl and Tyrannosaurus Den.


We're The Bruvs - Extended Mega-Mix

First published: Tuesday 13th June 2017

The Bruvs go all singalong-a-karaoke with the extended mega-mix version of their ever so catchy theme song. Eat your heart our Styles, Bieber, Perry, Beyonce, Swift and Z.

Trouble is, The Bruvs - Doug and Den - soon find an evil new use for a product designed to neutralise badness.

Getting The Hump

First published: Wednesday 11th April 2018

The Bruvs cut to the chase when they discover they can do their new community a good deed. But, as ever, not all is quite as it seems with Doug and Den.

If you like car chases, random cardboard box action and have had your fill of traffic calming measures - this film will be right up your street. Or road. Or alley. High speed, high comedy, high action - this film has it all.


Tooth Fairy

First published: Friday 1st June 2018

The simple act of tying a thread to a tooth and pulling it out becomes a major crisis for all involved.


Sweet Chanterelle
