Apple buys animated film from Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon

Delighted for Cartoon Saloon. They're quietly pumping out some of the loveliest animations I've seen in a long time -- like Ghibli at their finest. If you don't believe me, check out Puffin Rock on Netflix, which is a genuinely great children's cartoon that's full of charm and wit and visual inventiveness and it tells stories about friendship and intelligence that have none of the normal moralising one traditionally associates with children's tv.
