On completion of its third series, Big and Small will total 78 x 11-minute episodes.

Kindle Entertainment will co-produce the new series with Belfast-based Sixteen South, which also produces CBeebies’ shows Sesame Tree and Big City Park. The production has received funding from Northern Ireland Screen.

Colin Williams, executive producer for Sixteen South, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be joining the Big and Small family and pleased to be bringing the production of such a well-loved show to Northern Ireland. Our new partnership with Kindle is an exciting development for us and for the growing film and TV sector."

Featuring the voices of Lenny Henry and Imelda Staunton, the episodes focus on the comedy differences between odd couple Big and Small. The show hopes to encourage young children to appreciate other people’s differences.

Kindle executive producer, Anne Brogan, said: "It’s fantastic to be able to revisit Big and Small’s world and have the opportunity to create more laugh out loud stories for them."

The brand has enjoyed some licensing success, with HarperCollins, Paper Projects, C & M Licensing and Little Star Creations on board.

Big and Small regularly achieves the highest rating in its timeslot and has been seen by an estimated 38 per cent of all children in the UK aged between four and six. The BAFTA award-winning CBeebies website attracts around 900,000 unique users every week.
