Little Airplane Productions’ newest property, Small Potatoes, is set to premiere today in the UK on CBeebies.
The short-form animated series is also heading onto JEI TV in South Korea and to Hong Kong as a VOD service.
Following today’s launch, the series is set to air on Disney Junior in the US later in the year. Deals have already agreed with Canal + and Piwi in France, Finland’s YLE, NRK in Norway, SVT in Sweden, ABC TV in Australia and TVO and Knowledge in Canada.
The series follows the adventures of a band of four singing potatoes. Every episode contains a music video and two short comedy sketches. Composers on the series include the late Jerry Bock, Tony-Award winning composer of Fiddler On The Roof.
The Potatoes have already garnered more than 13,500 Facebook fans in advance of their small screen debut.
