Jay Laga’aia is narrating a new puppet-animated children’s series for Channel Seven, Larry the Lawnmower.
Currently in production with Ambience Entertainment (Erky Perky, Go Go Stop) there are over 65 half-hour episodes of this story of Larry, who hangs out with garden tool buddies including a wheelbarrow, a spade, a rake and a “green nervous garden hose.”
“It’s been really rewarding developing such accessible characters,” said executive producer Michael Boughen. “When you can create a show for children that explores such strong community values it is quite refreshing.”
Seven’s head of production Janeen Faithfull said it would hit the screens “very soon.”
Based on an original concept from Tim Faircloth, the show is understood to be unrelated to the Larry the Lawnmower children’s book written by Jeanne Archambault and illustrated by Victoria Corey.
