The stop-motion preschool show, a spin-off of the hugely popular ‘Morph’ series, follows 5 toddler-like clay creatures who explore a child’s play area when they’re alone; special holiday episode, ‘A Very Small Christmas,’ drops December 19.
Award-winning independent animation studio, Aardman, has just launched its newest IP, an all-new stop-motion preschool series called The Very Small Creatures. The first spin-off series from the studio’s hugely popular Morph series, it follows the adventures of five toddler-like clay creatures who explore a child’s play area when no one’s around - learning about their physical world, themselves, and each other. The show is directed by Lucy Izzard in her directorial debut.
The 20x3-minute colorful and characterful episodes are available now on Sky Kids with a bonus Christmas episode, “A Very Small Christmas,” available December 19 as part of a Sky Kids Christmas Favorites compilation on Sky Showcase. It will also be available on Sky Kids on Demand and NOW.
"I'm delighted to be able to share my five new besties with you today,” shared Izzard. “I hope these colorful characters thrill, excite and entertain a whole new host of very small people, as they watch The Very Small Creatures leap, bounce and ‘bottom-pop’ around their screens with all the joyous fun that curiosity brings."
“You don’t have to be a child to find Aardman’s incredible stop-motion animations truly enchanting,” added Lucy Murphy, Director of Kids Content, UK & ROI at Sky. “It’s been a real privilege to work with Director Lucy Izzard, whose unique creative vision for The Very Small Creatures is sure to delight the whole family this festive season.”
The Very Small Creatures is now available on Sky Kids and NOW in the UK, Germany, and Italy.
