Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

What is a Job? Who are a Family? And what is that horrible noise?

Join friends Red Guy, Yellow Guy and Duck as they learn about everything there is to know with the help of some friendly talking objects! But wait, maybe something’s not quite right here. Every teacher they meet on their journey seems a bit out of their depth. What lessons are they actually learning?

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a deeply unsettling comedy-horror puppet show: think The Muppet Show relocated to Twin Peaks. It started life as a YouTube phenomenon. Eleven years and a quarter of a billion views later, main characters Red Guy, Yellow Guy and Duck are now inside your television trying to get out. Red Guy, Yellow Guy and Duck have an important day of ‘nothing at all’ booked in.

Red Guy and Yellow Guy are very excited, but Duck is outraged. He demands to have something to do! And that something turns out to be something called a Job.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared – Friday at 11.35pm on Channel 4.
