Captain Horatio Pugwash first appeared in the Eagle Comic in 1950 and later as a strip in the Radio Times. The BBC commissioned in 1957 a series of cartoon films. A total of 86 five minute long episodes were made in black and white but later transferring into colour. They used a real time technique of animation in which cardboard cut outs of the characters were laid on painted backgrounds and moved with leavers.

All of our house signs and plaques are produced using only Irish limestone mostly from Kilkenny, Roscommon, Galway or the Burren. All of our pieces are unique because of the millions of years they have taken to form. When looking at the stone you will be amazed to see the small sea creatures in fossil form whose shells formed the limestone over countless millions of years. Thanks to those tiny creatures, your house plaque holds a slice of time millions of years old making this house plaque unique and an interesting addition to your home or an interesting and unusual present for a loved one. All our limestone is supplied by God and nature and worked by man.
