Newzoids is a topical puppet animation sketch show poking fun at pop stars, politicians, sports faces and TV favourites, and depicting our most talked about famous faces in a way they have never been seen before.

Imagine a world where David Cameron and Nick Clegg battle it out on Jeremy Kyle, where Ed Miliband joins Ant & Dec on I'm A Catastrophe... Get Me Out Of Here, and where Professor Brian Cox finds an extraordinary new planet in the solar system - Kim Kardashian's backside.

Featuring the voices of impressionists including Jon Culshaw and Debra Stephenson, Newzoids uses Strange Hill High's mixture of traditional puppetry and state of the art animation to put a satirical and surreal spin on the stories and celebrities we read about every day.

In the world of Newzoids, anything can happen and no one in the public eye is safe. Amongst the roster of famous (and infamous) faces on the roll-call are Ant and Dec, Wayne Rooney, Beyonce, Harry Styles, Prince Harry, David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Barack Obama, Russell Brand and Simon Cowell.
