Minuscule: The Best Toon Disney Show You Haven’t Seen

2 Feb

Heads-up to animation lovers: Minuscule is an adorable and funny little set of French cartoon shorts airing from time to time on Toon Disney. Based on the IMDB page linked above, it looks like it’s airing Friday nights at 9:45 Eastern, but I’ve just set my DVR to record the whole series rather than trying to catch it live, as I’m guessing Toon Disney might air them somewhat irregularly, as they do Shaun the Sheep and other short cartoons. (I’ve been at home sick all week, so I’ve had plenty of time to catch up on my viewing!)

Some of the episodes are on YouTube, and I’m posting one here to give you a teaser (courtesy of sonhex), but the animation’s so beautiful you really want to see it full-size, trust me.

Kudos to Toon Disney for reaching out to other animation studios for innovative programming! In my opinion, it definitely enhances the brand.

    Are there any plans to make a compilation on DVD of the Miniscule series?

    I don’t have any inside scoop here. I know that many of the episodes are on YouTube, but there’s no substitute for high-def!

    I wanted to know if our University would be able to order this series for educational purposes. Does anyone have any information?

    I haven’t been able to find any information on getting this series on DVD, but if anybody else knows please feel free to post the information here.

    The best Web site I’ve found with background information about the series is here: http://www.minuscule-dvd.com/. You can read it through a Web translator like babelfish.yahoo.com.

    We are unable, however, to purchase the DVDs; they do not ship to the USA.

    I bought my DVDs through One World DVD, a Malaysia-based retailer on eBay. http://tinyurl.com/ccgcor
    *complete 4-DVD (78 episode) set is $54.95
    *shipping to USA is only $3 and took about 10 days or so
    *DVDs play perfectly on all computers and regular DVD players (the French DVDs would be Region 2; these Chinese ones work in our players).

    I have bought several copies of the DVD compilation for my grandchidren (and their parents!) at ABC shops in Melbourne Australia. I adore it and watch repeatedly with them! nannika 2012
