The Rubbish World of Dave Spud (or just Dave Spud for short) is a British children's animated series featuring the surreal adventures of the eponymous Dave Spud of Grimsby, his friends and tower block-dwelling family.

It was created and directed by Edward Foster, inspired by his 2003 NFTS student short 'Hannah Spud'. It was developed into a pilot in 2010 produced by The Illuminated Film Company. 26 11-minute installments were commissioned, whilst the soundtrack was composed by electronic group Basement Jaxx.


The misadventures of underdog Dave Spud and his family. They embark on some extraordinary expeditions along with the likes of Gareth the Starfish and one eyed flea ridden Fuzzypeg the dog.

Why It Rocks

  1. Weird and wonderful soundtracks by the amazing Basement Jaxx!
  2. The dry humour in this is great.
  3. A lot of crazy and random moments.
  4. The show took place in an animated version of Grimsby, which looks less grim than in real life.
  5. It was created by the same production company that made Little Princess and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
  6. Gareth the Starfish is an entertaining character.
    • In fact, him breaking the fourth wall and interacting with the audience makes the show refreshing to watch.
  7. The character designs, while odd-looking, are very creative and interesting.
  8. Dave himself is a likable character.
  9. It has it's own website where you can sign in to some exclusive stuff.

Bad Qualities

  1. People might find the title somewhat similar to The Amazing World of Gumball.
  2. Gran can be unlikable at times.
  3. Dave's mum's voice (Betty Spud) sounds too manly due to her being voiced by Philip Gleinster.
  4. Dave can be a bit of a punching bag, having been bossed around a lot and blamed for causing every calamity and saving the people of Grimsby. It might be similar to how Horrid Henry always gets blamed for everything, even for stuff he didn’t do.
