In 2016 we launched 'Bigmouth Originals' - a department dedicated to producing original I.P in house with a particular focus on audio centric properties.
After attending key industry events and conferences for a number of years we noticed that there was almost no high quality audio content being produced for kids. Our goal with 'Bigmouth Originals' is to consistently produce high quality and engaging, scripted audio content for the whole family to enjoy. We believe children's podcasts are the new 'bedtime story', a guilt free alternative to excessive screen time, an engaging activity that sparks creativity and imagination.
We launched 'Bigmouth Originals' with our flagship "audio comic book" series "Once Upon A Time In Zombieville" in collaboration with the BBC.

Once Upon A Time In Zombieville is a unique and crazy audio cartoon for 6-11 year olds created with visually impaired children at it’s heart, set in a fantastical world with hilarious and horrific challenges to overcome with the wit and wherewithal of our central visually impaired and dyslexic characters.

There he meets Samantha Addington (Sam) daughter of the local G.P, who befriends him. Just as he’s settling in, BOOM! An underground explosion and his dad goes missing. The earth cracks and something strange ends up in the water supply – strong enough to wake the dead
