Television We Love
Small Potatoes is the new short-form series from Josh Selig and Little Airplane Productions. Selig is the creator of the clever children’s series Wonder Pets and 3rd and Bird. Episodes of Small Potatoes appear throughout the day between regularly scheduled programs on Disney Junior in lieu of commercials. At just under four minutes each, they’re a perfect little opportunity to make a quick point, but this ambitious series does it with style and high production values.
An episode I particularly love is on the topic of imagination (appropriately enough) and can be seen in its entirety here:
And if you live in the New York City area, you can tour the Small Potatoes Animation Factory located at South Street Seaport. According to the Little Airplane website, “The Small Potatoes Animation Factory Tour runs weekdays at 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Reservations are required.” Sounds pretty great to me!
