Joe Sims plays ‘Chugineer Fletch’ in the children’s TV series of Chuggington, now nominated for Best Animated Television Production For Preschool Children at this year’s 40th Annual Annie Awards!

The ‘Annies’ are the highest honour given for excellence in animation. Each year, Annie Award trophies are awarded for the year’s best animated feature films, television programmes, video games and commercials. This year’s glamorous event will be held in Los Angeles in early February.

Over the years, the Annies have evolved from an inspiration to an honored tradition in the world of animation. Since the awards began in 1972, they have played a vital role in recognising animation’s biggest achievements.
