Gumnutz: A Juicy Tale
is a 2007 Australian animated special, produced together by Flying Bark and Big Pix Productions, that follows the adventures of Claude, a neurotic and withdrawn young numbat, who inherits the struggling Gumnut Juice Factory from his step-Uncle Kelvin. Claude's nemesis is a fox called Hotshot Charlie, and he and his cronies (the Wedge) want to find the secret formula for Gumnut Juice and destroy the factory. Hotshot kidnaps Uncle Kelvin, the only one who knows the formula, triggering Claude's epic journey. With an encrypted poem and a little help from his pals, Claude has to rescue Kelvin, find the secret formula, stop Hotshot Charlie's evil plan and in the process overcome his terrible fears and shyness.
