Big And Small

Status: Completed

Big and Small follows the comic adventures of two unlikely best friends, and features the voices of Lenny Henry and Imelda Staunton. Lenny voices both Big and Small whilst Imelda voices their friends Ruby (a mouse) and Twiba (The Worm who lives in Big’s Apple).

Big and Small live in a house in the countryside with two front doors, one big and one little. Small refuses to use the little front door! It is the perfect world for adventures. There is a pond where two frogs live, a garden shed, an apple tree with a swing and even ‘mysterious’ woods at the end of the garden.

Through funny, fast-paced, engaging stories, with a song in each episode, young viewers are encouraged to see the world from very different perspectives.

As well as being very funny, Big and Small also model some important behaviours for young children. They always resolve their conflicts with warmth and humour. Their concern for each other encourages pre-schoolers to think beyond themselves, to become more aware of the different views around them and so learn to be more sensitive to the needs of others
