About the Show

Based on the series of children’s picture books about The Little Yellow Digger by Betty and Alan Gilderdale. When the little yellow digger gets stuck in the mud, a range of bigger diggers are sent to finish the job…plus other fun adventures of this tenacious machine.

Stories featured in the show are The Little Yellow Digger Saves the Whale, The Little Yellow Digger at the Zoo, The Little Yellow Digger, The Little Yellow Digger and the Bones, The Little Yellow Digger Goes to School.
