There was a young man named Solatro who loves to play football.
One day Solatro went to a football team’s office named Shartadrol.
He went in and asked the manager, “Can I join this team and play for the Almador Cup?”
He trained very hard and became a very good football player.
At last Shartadrol’s coach told Solatro, “Now you may join us.”
Solatro was very happy that he could join the team.
During the Almador Cup final match when Shartadrol played against Hanianon, Solatro played very well and he scored two goals.
But suddenly, Hanianon’s Jamlil pushed Solatro down and Solatro was badly injured.
The referee gave Jamlil a red card and a penalty kick for Shartadrol.
Shartadrol’s stiker, Lalakort kicked the ball and scored a goal.
And when the game was over Shartadrol won 3-0.
Anyway Solatro had to retire from playing football because of his injuries.
He was very sad but he would not want to sit and cry about it.
He decided to start a business .
Solatro worked very hard and at last he became a very successful businessman.
The moral of the story is, work hard in everything we do, do not give up and keep on trying.
‘Small Potatoes’ is the latest TV shortform series by the Little Airplane Productions.
It is created, written and directed by Josh Selig, the creator of ‘Wonder Pets’and ‘3rd & Bird’.
I first knew about ‘Small Potatoes’ on Jan 29, 2011 when Mr. Josh Selig sent me a comment on my post, ‘3rd & Bird‘.
I am very happy and proud to received comments from Mr. Josh Selig!
He also gave me the link to listen to one of the songs from ‘Small Potatoes’, ‘Imagination’.
The shows airs in Spring 2011 but I can’t watch them because I don’t have cable TV or satellite TV at home.
The episode that I first watched was the first episode, ‘Imagination (Give It A Try)’.
I really love the show 🙂
I think ‘Small Potatoes’ is so cute and sweet and the song are very beautiful.
Thank you to Mr. Josh Selig for creating beautiful animations and nice songs that promotes good values 🙂
Children television series must promote good values and teach children to be a better person and not promoting bad values and violence.
On 9th April, 2011, I met Uncle Nizal Mohammad at the book launch of “Minda Tertawan’,
Uncle Nizal used to work for TV3.
But now he works for TV AlHijrah.
The programs that TV AlHijrah airs promotes good values.
I told him that TV AlHijrah should buy the rights to air ‘Small Potatoes’ and ‘The Olive Branch’ because both television series promote good values, fun and the animations are very beautiful.
They have nice and beautiful songs too.
TV Al Hijrah used to air another animated series from the Little Airplane Productions that I really love watching named ‘3rd & Bird’.
Uncle Nizal is a very nice man.
I love to talk with him and I wish to meet him again 🙂
It was real fun and the animation is so beautiful.
The story is about Samuel, Rudy and Muffin playing, singing, dancing and exploring all around the 3rd & Bird.
The stories teach us good values.
The characters help each other and they work together.
I read on the internet that 3rd & Bird is originally from Cbeebies.
But the first time I watched it, I thought it was from Nick Jr.
And 3rd & Bird reminds me of the Wonder Pets.
I think it is because the creator of 3rd & Bird is Josh Selig and the creative director is Jennifer Oxley.
They are also the creator and the creative director of Wonder Pets.
The first 3rd & Bird episode that I watched was ‘Go Camping and Starry Night’.
In Malaysia 3rd & Bird is aired daily on TV AlHijrah at 3:30 pm.
The cast are:
- Muffin – Eden Jarrett – a pre-school lovebird.
- Samuel – Sam Lewis – Muffin’s elder brother.
- Rudy – Morgan Gayle – Called a cockatoo in the program, but looks like a Cockatiel, Samuel’s best friend. She wears a bracelet of colored stones on her ankle.
- Quinn – Preston Nyman – a puffin, works as an inventor; appears to be a teenager.
- Mr Beakman – Michael Fenton Stevens – the children’s teacher, a wise toucan who frequently acts as the voice of parental authority.
- Missy – Charlotte Leslie-Cameron – a French Great Blue Turaco.
- Mrs Billingsley – Anna Nygh – a gardening kiwi with a New Zealand accent.
