City of Friends...

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.

Max is everyone’s friend and the city’s mischief-maker. The children in the city think he is the coolest and the funniest in the whole city. Elphie is a bubbly and adventure-loving elephant. Her impressive trunk and its water-shooting abilities make her a natural fire-fighter. Ted the caring young teddybear, is starting his life in the ambulance service. He’s very popular and offers great comfort to people in need, providing reassurance with his cuddly warmth.

This is a pre school show that's a bit different from the others! It still has thecatchy theme tune but unlike many animated shows available City of Friends promotes themes of cooperation, friendship, tolerance, knowledge, activity and fun . The series sparks the imagination with exciting, playful storylines which are entertaining and teach very gentle, but valuable life-lessons along the way.


The inspiration for the stories came from creator Carl Christian Hamre’s own day job working as a member of Norway’s state police. “One evening I told my son a bedtime story about the three emergency services; how they work together to solve the challenges and problems they are called out to. However, this time, I replaced myself and my colleagues, with people and animals in the emergency services, and City of Friends was born.”

City of Friends airs weekdays on Channel Five’s Milkshake! at 6.20am every day. To see the rest of the characters and some clips why not head over to the City of Friends website and the Facebook page?
