MechaNick is a British children's animated series created by Peter Scott of Impossible TV from 2003 to 2004, running for a total of 80 seven-minute-long episodes airing on Channel 5's Milkshake! block.[1] Aside from a DVD and VHS release comprising the first eight episodes, the first episode was featured on a Milkshake! compilation DVD. With the exception of a few episodes, the remaining episodes of the series are considered to be lost.


Narrated by the recognisable Hugh Laurie, the show revolves around a mechanic named Nick living in the fictional Tooley Town, helping out the many residents there. Many of his friends include Spanner, a dog, as well as characters of different professions. At least one episode includes a musical number related to the current events of the storyline, alongside Nick's recurring motto "Where there's a wheel, there's a way!"

MechaNick was one of the few early shows of the time that were completely 3D-animated. 3ds Max was mainly used, which in itself made use of various plugins to reduce the animation production time through a four-day schedule.[2]
