Noodle and Doodle is a live action children's television series, which premiered on September 25, 2010 and ended on March 9, 2013. The series was created by John McCoy, is produced and directed by Kristopher Updike, and currently airs on NBC Kids and PBS Kids Sprout. The series is Sprout's first original long form television series. In Canada, it airs on the Knowledge Network.
The show began production in summer of 2010. The show was originally launched by Enthusiastic Productions. Currently, the show is produced by Kristofer Updike (producer of Sprout) and Grooters Productions. The show is filmed in Holland, Michigan at Hope College, with some scenes filmed around West Michigan.
The show begins with a double-decker bus driving around West Michigan, driven by Sean Roach. Sean then visits a family to get ideas for a recipe and a craft. Doodle then draws out a "blueprint" for what Sean will make. He teaches the viewing audience how to make healthy recipes and crafts step-by-step.
There is also an animated segment called "Doggity's", where Sean's pet beagle Doggity also makes a recipe with his other dog friends in a restaurant in Doggity's imagination.
Sean and the children featured in the episode recycle an object from the recipe to use for a craft.
- Sean (played by Sean Roach) − The host of the show, driver of the bus, and the person who makes the recipes and crafts.
- Noodle McNoodle (performed by Bianca Goode and Stacy Nesbit) − A lovable puppet of indetermined species who assists Sean with making recipes and likes using her "noodle." In specific episodes, Noodle McNoodle would dress up in different costumes to match the theme of the episode.
- Doodle − A virtual bus-shaped computer who creates the recipe and craft ideas.
- Doggity (voiced by Lucien Dodge) - Sean's pet beagle who lives on the bus in the live-action segment and who becomes animated as a chef in an restaurant within his imagination.
- Deedledee (voiced by Andrea Caron) - A poodle who is seen in the "Doggity's" segments working as a waitress.
- Mack (voiced by Pete Markham) - A bulldog who is seen in the "Doggity's" segments working as a cook. When Mack tries to make a dish for the customers that just ordered, he would accidentally make a mess and he would quote "I'll get the mop again." After Doggity makes the dish for the specific customers, Mack would quote "It'll never work" as Deedledee tells him that he keeps saying it. In the "Moms" episode, Mack quoted "It just might work" as Deedledee remarks "Wow, Mack! You never say that!"
- Tony (voiced by Tim Whitnall) - A pug with a sea captain motive who is seen in the "Doggity's" segments working as a cook. When it comes to the customers' recent orders, Tony would recap about an event in his life that revolved around that until Deedledee would correct him. Tony would then make a comment to follow up on Deedledee's comment. After Doggity completes the dish for the specific customers, Tony would quote "Order Up."
