Small Potatoes launches on Cbeebies

New Little Airplane series begins UK run; deals signed in South Korea and Hong Kong.

Little Airplane's new short-form animation series, Small Potatoes, premieres on Cbeebies today (April 18th).

Following its launch on Cbeebies, the show - which has already been causing a stir on Facebook, with over 13,500 members becoming fans before an episode had even aired - will air on Disney Junior in the US later in the year.

Deals have also been agreed with Canal+ and Piwi in France, Finland's YLE, NRK in Norway, SVT in Sweden, ABC TV in Australia and TVO and Knowledge in Canada.

Most recent deals have been with JEI TV in South Korea and now TV in Hong Kong as a VOD service.

"The reaction to Small Potatoes from the public and international broadcasters has been incredible and we cannot wait to see what happens once the programme launches in Cbeebies," said Josh Selig, head of Little Airplane.
