Fun Factory was a children's programme on the satellite television channel Sky Channel (later to become Sky One) that ran from 1985 to 1994. It continued as a programming block without a host up until 1994.

Original Programme

It was originally hosted by Mr P, who was later replaced by Andy Sheldon, Snoot the seal and Crocker the crocodile. The programme included cartoons such as:

Second Incarnation

After Sky Channel's renaming to Sky One in 1989, the Fun Factory name was used for a weekend block programming strand showing nothing but animated series, notably without any live-action presenters in-between the programmes - just animated interstitials. This version of the Fun Factory lasted from 1991 to September 1994, when it was replaced with The DJ Kat Show weekend spin-off, KTV. A partial list of series shown on the Sky One-era Fun Factory include:
