Tumble Leaf is an Emmy-winning Amazon Studios original series that premiered in 2014. It is a stop motion animated series for preschool-aged children and is based on the short film Miro. Created by animator Drew Hodges (Saturday Night Live, Community) and stop-motion studio Bix Pix Entertainment, Tumble Leaf features an anthropomorphic blue fox named Fig and his caterpillar friend Stick (both voiced by child actor Christopher Downs), along with other residents of the island of Tumble Leaf, helping preschoolers learn basic science lessons through playful examples. Additional regular characters include Maple (Brooke Wolloff), Rutabaga (Jodi Downs), Hedge (Landon Clay), Pine (Addie Zintel), and Ginkgo (Gary Littman). Each episode consists of two 11-minute stories with Fig learning the mechanics of various items discovered in a special room on board the abandoned shipwreck where he resides.
