The Tall Tales of Urchin

The Tall Tales of Urchin was created by Hamish Steele for Nickelodeon's International Shorts Program. It was later picked up for series development. 


The show is inspired by Dickensian tales of street orphans living in Victorian London. Urchin is a young, orphaned girl who lives on the streets of Old Town - a higgledy piggledy mash up of various eras. Along with her fellow orphans Raggamuffin and Mudlark, she tries her best to find the fun in life while being led along her friend's get rich quick schemes.
