McCartney releases frog follow-up
Tropic Island Hum
Tropic Island Hum is released in April
Sir Paul McCartney is to release a new animated film as a follow-up to his 1984 hit Rupert and the Frog Song.

Tropic Island Hum, based around the adventures of a Liverpudlian squirrel called Wirral, will feature on a DVD to be released on 19 April.

The animated film features a new children's song written by Sir Paul.

The DVD, called Paul McCartney: The Music and Animation Collection, also features the original 1984 cartoon plus Tuesday, a tale about flying frogs.

Rupert and The Frog Song won a Bafta following its release, and director Geoff Dunbar also made Tropic Island Hum.

Dunbar also worked with the Beatles legend on an animated film about the work of French artist Honore Daumier, which won them a Bafta in 1992.
