Chip and Potato is a Canadian-American animated children's television series created by Billy Macqueen, Catherine Williams, and Maddy Darrall. The series is co-produced by DHX Media and Darrall Macqueen.

The series follows Chip, a young pug who faces challenges in pre-kindergarten without her grown-ups, and Potato, her snuggly "toy" who is secretly a living mouse. It first premiered on Family Jr. on October 15, 2018.[2]

The first ten episodes of the series were released on Netflix on May 17, 2019.[3]

Plot[edit]

Chip and Potato is about Chip, a four-year-old pug who faces big challenges and embarks on the new stages of her life; whether it's kindergarten, play dates, or sleepovers, without the aid of her mother and father. There to help and comfort Chip whenever she needs it is her best friend Potato; a snuggly "toy" who she snuggles in her pocket. However, Potato is actually a real, living mouse who must be kept a secret.[4][1][5]

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Chip (voiced by Abigail Oliver), (Ava Talbot for the UK dub), is a friendly, curious, and big-hearted four-year-old pug.[6]
  • Potato (voiced by Andrea Libman) is Chip's best tiny mouse friend who keeps herself a secret to everyone else as a toy. She springs into action to give Chip the security and confidence she needs.[6]
  • Spud (voiced by Chance Hurstfield) is Chip's brother.[2]
  • Nico (voiced by Dominic Good) is Chip's friend.[2]

Recurring[edit]

  • Little Momma (voiced by Briana Buckmaster) is Chip's mother.[2]
  • Little Poppa (voiced by Brian Dobson) is Chip's father.[2]

Production[edit]

Chip and Potato is co-produced by DHX Media in Canada, and Darrall Macqueen in the United Kingdom. The series' target demographic is for children under seven years old.[1] Maddy Darrall, the co-founder and co-MD at Darrall Macqueen, told C21 regarding the series that "series arcs in preschool animation are simply not done; we want to prove they should be."[7]

Episodes[edit]

The first season will have 40 11-minute episodes.[1]
