Microscopic Milton is a British series of short animated films. Created and written by Tony Garth, they were first broadcast on CBBC between 1997 and 1999. The show was produced by Splash Animation Ltd and executive produced by Russell Neale Anthony Dever with distribution through EVA Entertainment. The series was self-financed and was one of the first commercially produced series on Cambridge Animo. The series was sold via acquisition to the BBC in the UK and Disney Channel in the USA. Two series were produced each of 13 X 5' being 26 eps in total.
Microscopic Milton was a tiny man who lived in a clock on the mantelpiece in a house owned by Mrs. Witherspoon (who like Nanny from Jim Henson's Muppet Babies and Mammy Two Shoes - is only seen from the shoulders down), who was unaware of Milton's existence. Milton was befriended by Mrs. Witherspoon's large, shaggy dog, Douglas.
Each episode ran five minutes, and 26 episodes were produced. The narrative was provided by the late sitcom star Brian Wilde though airings in America were narrated by Kristen Johnston.
