Series featuring ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic and Aimee Mann will be available in more than 200 territories.
Amazon Studios announced the Daytime Emmy Award-winning show Little Big Awesome will premiere April 27 with six half-hour episodes on Prime Video in more than 200 territories.
Animated and produced by Titmouse (Niko and the Sword of Light, Big Mouth and Venture Bros.), Little Big Awesome features “Weird Al” Yankovic as The Sun. Yankovic also will provide musical performances, as will Grammy Award-winner Aimee Mann.
Little Big Awesome is a comedy for all ages that combines 2D animation, puppetry and real animals with live-action footage set in the whimsically weird world of Townopolis. The two colorful and adorable central characters are Gluko, a shapeshifting pink Jelly Giant; and Lennon, Gluko’s small, beanie-toting best friend. Viewers will also meet the notorious Mr. Sprinkles (a kitty with an eye patch), Claude the Buff Hamster, Fluffy Smoosh and Stuhven, who lives in Lennon’s hat.
The series follows Gluko and Lennon, the two best friends ever of all time in the history of everything. While having weird and wonderful adventures, these besties help the citizens live their best lives, even if helping sometimes causes more problems than it solves.
Little Big Awesome is written, developed and executive produced by Ben Gruber (SpongeBob SquarePants and Superjail!) and created by Tomi Dieguez (TRONCO).
