Show Summary

Sarah and Duck live in a small village, in a small house, with a small wonky garden path and a red front door. Together they go on adventures, sometimes with unexpected outcomes, finding out about their everyday world and always adding a touch of quirkiness along the way. Sarah is seven years old and Duck is her quacky, flappy best friend. Each animated episode is told from Sarah’s point of view, though The Narrator sometimes joins in the adventures and will help out too. Sarah and Duck often work together to come up with solutions to problems, with Duck more impatient and Sarah following her instincts.
