City of Friends Celebrate their birthday with Milkshake!



City of Friends is the beautifully animated pre-school TV show that’s turned into something of a global phenomenon! Originally from Norway, City of Friends is now airing in more than 150 countries around the world!


Currently showing on Channel Five’s Milkshake! the series centres around the three emergency teams; Police, Ambulance and Fire: and the three friends, Max the police officer, Elphie the fire officer and Ted the paramedic who work together to solve problems and help people around their city.

Read this interview with the characters to find out more...



Well this week they are celebrating their first birthday with a special themed 'Rescue Week' on milkshake!

Today Max was in the studio to introduce ‘Max’s Mountain Walk’. Whilst walking up Friends Mountain, Max causes the ice to crack when he practices his yodelling and finds himself stuck in a crevice. When Mia also gets stuck in the ice, Martin summons the rescue crew on his walkie-talkie.


In the studio on Tomorrow (Tuesday), Ted recalls the time when ‘Ted Forgets the Bandages’. No one notices when Timba runs off with a packet of bandages. So later, when Abby is called out to tend Jumpi, Martin thinks Ted has forgotten them! When Abby has a puncture en route, Ted finds the bandages in Petey's van! However did they get there?

Jumpi is in the studio on Wednesday. He and his new metal detector came to the rescue in ‘Gone Fishin’’. Martin and Mia are out on the lake fishing with their dad when Bonnie the boat becomes entangled in an old net. Hayley the helicopter is called out but her key is missing. Can Jumpi find it?

On Thursday, Elphie joins the Milkshake! presenters for ‘Bobby’s Sand Castle’. Max has a spare key cut for Hayley because she is always losing it. But then he loses the new one at the beach! Try as he might, he can't find it. So Elphie is called and sucks up lots of water in her trunk. Will she be able to find the key?

Max is back in the ‘Milkshake!’ studio on Friday for ‘Helmets are Cool’. Martin and Mia have been recruited to deliver lunch to the three trainees, who are on a training exercise on how to handle a fire. Mia refuses to wear a helmet, but when a real accident happens that Max has to deal with, she soon learns the error of her ways.


You can watch City of Friends weekdays on Channel 5’s Milkshake at 6.20am, Saturdays at 6.15am and Sundays at 6.25am. Or visit www.cityoffriends.com, www.facebook.com/cityoffriendstv or @cityoffriendstv
