Little Airplane Productions has struck a series of new broadcasting deals for its popular pre-school property Small Potatoes.

Its animated film Meet the Small Potatoes will air on Disney Junior Australia.

The Small Potatoes TV series will also feature on the free-to-air channel Once in Mexico.

Meet the Small Potatoes is an animated rock mockumentary based on singing potatoes.

Starring British actor Malcolm McDowell, the film was screened theatrically in Los Angeles, Boston and New York.

The film premiered on Disney Junior and is due to air on Disney Junior in Japan later this year.

Meanwhile, the Small Portatoes TV series is aimed at three to six-year-olds and is now available in 24 countries including Disney Junior in the US and CBeebies in the UK.

The Small Potatoes Facebook page has recently achieved over 1.7m likes.

Josh Selig, president of Little Airplane Productions, said: "We are thrilled that the Small Potatoes are continuing to grow and thrive in so many international markets.

"Our intention was always to create a global brand that was as strong in social media as it was on broadcast television. We always knew it would happen, we just didn't expect it to happen this fast."

The latest broadcasting deals follow Little Airplane Productions recent announcement that it has signed Jada Toys as the global master toy partner for the brand.
