DreamWorks The Mighty Ones Creators Sunil Hall and Lynne Naylor Talk About the Series on Hulu and Peacock today!
DreamWorks The Mighty Ones launches today on Hulu and Peacock and although you might not know Sunil Hall and Lynne Naylor by name, you are familiar with their work. Hall has worked on such shows as Pickle and Peanut, The Mighty B! and Disney’s Gravity Falls while Naylor has been apart of Samurai Jack, The Ren & Stimpy Show and The Lego Movie. The duo had worked on Monsters vs Aliens together now now bring us the 10-episode series The Mighty Ones.
Every backyard contains a secret world filled with tiny creatures. The Mighty Ones follows the hilarious adventures of four small-but-mighty best friends: a twig, a pebble, a leaf, and a strawberry. The pals live in an unkempt yard belonging to a trio of equally unkempt humans and, despite the obstacles they face, are always up for whatever life throws at them. Whether they’re soaring on soda lids, getting stuck in a ball of sticky goop or worshipping a broken toilet, each day holds the promise of new adventures and surprises.
Led by Hall and Naylor, the series’ creative team has worked on some of the most influential animated series of the last two decades (The Ren & Stimpy Show, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, South Park and more). The Mighty Ones blends laugh-out-loud storytelling with a distinct visual style—and a whole lot of heart.
DreamWorks The Mighty Ones features the voices of Jessica McKenna (Little Big Awesome) as “Rocksy,” Alex Cazares (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as “Very Berry,” Jimmy Tatro (Modern Family) as “Leaf,” and Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as “Twig.”
I spoke with the Hall and Naylor about their new series, how this all came about and the fun they are having in telling the adventures of a rock, a leaf, a stick and a strawberry.
