Little Critter is coming to the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the children’s book series is being developed as an animated TV show.
Written by Mercer Mayer, the popular books follow the adventures of a young, rodent-like creature and his family and friends in Critterville. The character first appeared in the 1975 book Just For You and has since been featured in more than 40 publications.
Nine Story Media Group is developing the TV series and is planning to produce around 40 half-hour episodes.
From Turner Media’s Stuart Snyder:
With their capabilities across CG and 2D animation, commitment to quality storytelling and long-standing track record in international distribution, 9 Story has the passion and know-how to make a Little Critter series a hit show around the world.”
