Chip and Potato is a Canadian-British-American flash-animated children's television series created by Billy Macqueen, Catherine Williams, and Maddy Darrall. The series is co-produced by DHX Media and Darrall Macqueen.

The series follows Chip, a young pug who faces challenges in kindergarten and Potato, her snuggly "toy" who is secretly a living mouse. It first premiered on Family Jr. on October 15, 2018.[2] The first twenty episodes (released as two segments per episode) of the series were released on Netflix on May 17, 2019. The second half, labeled as a second season, was released on Netflix on November 29, 2019.[3]


Chip and Potato is about Chip, a young pug who faces big challenges and embarks on the new stages of her life. There to help and comfort Chip whenever she needs it is her best friend Potato; a snuggly "toy" who she snuggles in her pocket. However, Potato is actually a real, living mouse who must be kept a secret.[4][1][5]


Main/Pug Family[edit]

  • Chip Pug (voiced by Abigail Oliver; Ava Talbot in the UK dub[6]), is a friendly, curious, and big-hearted four-year-old (she later turns five years old in "Chip's Birthday") pug. She is Nico's best friend.
  • Potato (voiced by Andrea Libman) is Chip's best friend, who is a tiny mouse. Potato keeps herself a secret to everyone else; she appears as a toy when anyone else is around, except for Chip. She gives Chip security and confidence.
  • Spud Pug (voiced by Chance Hurstfield; Sam Day in the UK dub) is Chip's older brother.[2]
  • Little Momma Pug (voiced by Briana Buckmaster; Kate Harbour in the UK dub) is Chip's mother.[2]
  • Little Poppa Pug (voiced by Brian Dobson; Wayne Forester in the UK dub) is Chip's father.[2]
  • Nico Panda (voiced by Dominic Good) is a panda and Chip's best friend.[2]
  • Totsy Tot Pug is Chip's baby sister.
  • Grandma Pug (voiced by Christina Jastrzembska) is Chip, Spud, and Tot's grandmother and Little Poppa's mother and Little Momma's mother-in-law.


  • Gigglish Grand (voiced by Emma Jayne Maas) is a giraffe in Chip's kindergarten class.
  • Stomp Fant (voiced by Evan Byarushengo, Dexter Norbury-Bell in the UK dub) is a male elephant in Chip's kindergarten class. He is Stamp's brother.
  • Stamp Fant (voiced by Scotia Andersen, Abi Kelly in the UK dub) is a female elephant in Chip's kindergarten class. She is Stomp's sister.
  • Howie Hyena (voiced by Brenden Sunderland) is a mischievous hyena in Chip's kindergarten class.
  • Mr. Diggerty (voiced by Alessandro Juliani; Paul J. Rose in the UK dub) is a mole and Chip, Nico, Stomp, and Stamp's kindergarten teacher.
  • Amanda Panda (voiced by Teryl Rothery) is Nico and Bodi's mother.
  • Bodi Panda is Nico's baby brother.


Chip and Potato is co-produced by DHX Media in Canada and Darrall Macqueen in the United Kingdom. The series' target demographic is for children under seven years old.[1] Maddy Darrall, the co-founder and co-MD at Darrall Macqueen, told C21 regarding the series that "series arcs in preschool animation are simply not done; we want to prove they should be."[7]

A British dub by Adrenaline Studios was released on the same day the series debuted on Netflix.
