Rare Owl Times is an animated series that encourages Dubliners to shop local, just like they did in the good old days. It focuses on a bunch of literal Owl Ones and Owl Fellas, as they frequent their local shops, and tell a few auld stories along the way.

It was created by us - Showrunner - along with some local talents. With drawings by Ross Carvill, voices from Tony Cantwell, Ali Fox & Wren Dennehy, and sound by Raygun.
