The series has won multiple BAFTA awards.

Animation style

The television series uses a collage style of animation which captures the style of the original books. 2D cel animation, paper cutout, fabric design, real textures, photomontage, and archive footage are all employed and subsequently animated in a software application called CelAction.[1] The cartoons are also notable for their use of children rather than adult voice actors, a technique pioneered by the Peanuts television specials. Both the books and the cartoon also follow Peanuts' as well as Ed, Edd n Eddy's technique of never showing adults.
