Aardman Unveils ‘Very Small Creatures’ For Very Small Children

Aardman is best known for its breakout hit Wallace & Gromit, and has since rolled out several highly successful films and series, many of which have become just as popular for licensing deals. Some of their most popular films or shows include Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Creature Comforts, Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were Rabbit.

The Very Small Creaturesis the first spin-off from the studio’s popular Morph series, based on one of the first characters developed by Aardman founders David Sproxton and Peter Lord.

The new show features colorful, big-eyed blobs that are among the simplest looking characters developed by Aardman, but that somehow exude unique personalities. The series depicts the adventures of five toddler-like clay creatures who explore a child’s play area when no one’s around. Currently there are 20 episodes of the charming stop-motion programs available on Sky Kids, but the studio has also produced a bonus Christmas episode, A Very Small Christmas, which will air as part of a Sky Kids Christmas Favorites compilation.

The Very Small Creatures also marks the directorial debut on this series for Lucy Izzard, who is both an animator and director with Aardman.

“I’m delighted to be able to share my five new besties with you,” she says. “I hope these colourful 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.”

Aardman programs have been particularly popular in the UK, and Lucy Murphy, Director of Kids Content, UK & ROI at Sky, says the network is thrilled to air another series from the studio.

“You don’t have to be a child to find Aardman’s incredible stop-motion animations truly enchanting,” Murphy says. “It’s been a real privilege to work with 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 available now in the UK, Germany and Italy.
