Amazon Studios today announced Little Big Awesome, a Daytime Emmy Award-winning show for all ages, will premiere with six half-hour episodes on Friday, April 27 on Prime Video in over 200 territories. Animated and produced by Titmouse (Niko and the Sword of Light, Big Mouth, The Venture Bros.), the series features “Weird Al” Yankovic as the voice of The Sun and incorporates musical performances by Grammy Award-winner Aimee Mann, as well as Yankovic.
Little Big Awesome is a colorful that combines 2D animation, puppetry and real animals with live-action footage set in the whimsically weird world of Townopolis. The two cheery central characters are Gluko, a shapeshifting pink Jelly Giant, and Lennon, Gluko’s small, beanie-toting best friend. Viewers will also meet the notorious Mr. Sprinkles (a kitty with an eye patch), Claude the Buff Hamster, Fluffy Smoosh and Stuhven, an adorable character who lives in Lennon’s hat.
The series follows Gluko and Lennon, the two best friends ever of all time in the history of everything. While having weird and wonderful adventures, these besties help the citizens live their best lives, even if helping sometimes causes more problems than it solves.
Little Big Awesome is written, developed and executive produced by Ben Gruber (SpongeBob SquarePants, Superjail!) and created by Tomi Dieguez (TRONCO).
