Background: Sam Webster (Me) and Michael Wildshill formed this company in 1988 as Webster/Wildshill Projects, where Michael Wildshill could direct thousands of animated short films, while Sam Webster could focus on making web comics. After producing award-winning animation for UK channels including, ITV, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, CITV, and US channels including GoAnimate Network, Nickelodeon, TNT and more, Michael Wildshill left to work on The Cowabunga! Brothers, so Webster renamed the studio to Webster Projects. In September 1992, Michael Wildshill returned Webster's studio, renamed it Webster & Wildshill Productions, and (with Sam Webster) made some animated shows.

Then, the explosive was trying to explode, but falls appart, resulting in an exploding dud.
