Gigantic Gigantosaurus News
It’s time to open the gates of a magical prehistoric world … we have a GIGANTOSAURUS!
Tether your tiny dinos and get ready for an action-packed adventure with Mazu, Rocky Bill and Tiny as they make their debut on Tiny Pop TV.
CyberGroup Studios have created the animated TV series based on Jonny Duddle’s best-selling picture book Gigantosaurus….. A Jurassic romp sure to draw in a whole hoard of small palaeontologists and eager explorers. With each episode following the gang of tiny dinos on a new seat gripping adventure it’s a delight to see Jonny’s original picture book characters brought to life on the small screen.
It sounds almost implausible but from a brief career climbing the rigging of a real life pirate ship to teaching art in the Kalahari Desert, Jonny Duddle has now settled into a relatively peaceful career as an award-winning author and illustrator. He lives in rural North Wales with his wife, daughters and a very excitable dog.
With a background in the computer games industry and his concept work featuring in Aardman’s Oscar nominated animation The Pirates! Jonny has an unrivaled skill for creating and developing unique characters. Using a combination of pencil and digital techniques he skillfully creates the inhabitants of his wonderful imaginary worlds.
Aside from numerous best-selling picture books Jonny’s work has adorned the covers of the prestigious children’s editions of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, showcasing again his broad commercial appeal.
Here’s a sneaky peek at some of the series tie-in publications set to hit the shelves alongside this wonderful fun packed animated series.
The Story of Gigantosaurus
Welcome to the Cretaceous world! Mazu, Rocky, Bill and Tiny are four young dino friends who love going on adventures. But they share their world with the biggest, hungriest and most fearsome dinosaur that ever lived – GIGANTOSAURUS. The friends want to find out more about him, so they decide to go Giganto hunting.

Gigantosaurus Don’t Cave In
