Plot[edit]

Hedgehog best friends, Pins and Nettie, alongside their friend the narrator, explore the sometimes difficult feelings associated with shyness and anxiety.[1]

There is nothing they like more than going on adventures together, most of time. You see, Pins and Nettie can both be very shy, especially when encountering the unknown or unexpected – whether it's an unfamiliar door on the Hedgie Highway, the biggest puddle they've ever seen, or the prospect of meeting a new friend. Pins and Nettie will explore the very real, very common situation of shyness amongst pre-schoolers and reassure viewers that there is nothing wrong with being shy. It's just a different way of being and taking in the world around you. Yes, Pins and Nettie are shy, butthey are still happy little hedgehogs who just need to approach things in their own way.

Production[edit]

The Series was animated using CelAction 2D Animation Software.

Pins and Nettie was nominated for 'Best Character Design' at the Manchester Animation Festival 2020[2], 'Best Animated Preschool Series', 'Best Director of an Animated Series', 'Best Irish IP' & 'Best Music' at the Irish Animation Awards 2021[3]
