The Lampies is a children's television series in which fictional engineers (Anthropomorphic Powers) defend a lighting network. The series was created by Dave Bonner and features a mixture of 2D and 3D animation.
The Lampies is a traditional hand-drawn animation for children aged 3 and above. The series has award winning music.
Created by Dave Bonner in conjunction with Uli Meyer Animation Studios and music by Mcasso Music, there are 52 eleven-minute episodes that were originally commissioned by the BBC. Financial issues caused the creative and business drive to falter and momentum was lost. In 2003 The Lampies IP was bought from the receiver by a private investor.
TV distribution rights for Series One were sold into 33 countries."International Songwriting Competition Results". 2006. http://www.songwritingcompetition.com/previouswinners#2006. When series one was broadcast in 2001 it regularly achieved over 40% of target viewing audience. This figure reached over 50% during 2002. Series two of The Lampies was completed in March 2002 and generated similar audience figures with prime slots on BBC 1 and 2. An introductory DVD - SWITCH ON TO THE LAMPIES was launched on 7 April 2008. The first full DVD, Disc 1 Series One - A BIT OF A JAM AND OTHER STORIES was launched on 19 May 2008. LP Productions formed a partnership with Save the Children in 2008. £2 from the sale of each SWITCH ON TO THE LAMPIES DVD will go towards the Save the Children protection work with very vulnerable children in Mongolia.
The Lampies theme tune was one of the most popular on CBBC, and helped the show gain popularity. It won first place in an International Songwriting Competition in 2006. Written by Mike Connaris of London-based Mcasso Music, the Lampies Title song won the Children's category against huge International competition. The judges included Tom Waits, Chris Hillman, John Mayall and Jerry Lee Lewis. The Lampies released a Christmas single called "Light Up the World for Christmas" in 2001. There is an extended version of the song, which is over two minutes.
