‘Tiny Planets’ Series Design & Development

About This Project

‘Tiny Planets’  Series Design & Development

Pepper’s Ghost approached me to develop a half page idea entitled “tiny planets” (by Anthony Hatfield). Two characters visiting themed planets with an educational theme!

From this seed I designed & developed “Bing & Bong” the two lead characters, their mode of transport (a fluffy white sofa, complete with seat-belts and steering wheel, catapulted through space on a fishing line) their “home” …and the structure of each episode.

My initial development immediately won the attention of Sesame Workshop – and after further artwork  a pilot was commissioned which I wrote, story-boarded and directed. The eventual series was shown globally to great acclaim and much merchandise – including McDonalds happy Meals – and appearing as the main display of the window of Central London’s “Planet Hollywood”!
