The series also features the voice talents of BAFTA Award nominee Shirley Henderson (Harry Potter franchise, Stan & Ollie) as Quackety Duck Duck; Dominique Moore (“Thomas & Friends”) as Pickle Pony; SAG Award nominee Joel Fry (Cruella, Paddington 2) as Al Alpaca; and Canan Yildiz-Husbands as Bif & Bop.
Lovely Little Farm is part of the Apple TV+ kids’ changemakers initiative, which brings together leading educators and storytellers to create original kids’ series. In this case, Apple TV+ partnered with changemaker Dr. Gail Melson, a leader in human-animal interaction and former professor Emerita in Human Development & Family Studies at Purdue University. Dr. Melson works with the executive producers to develop the show based on her research on children’s relationships with animals, nature, and emerging technologies.
