Five Minutes More is a children's television series co-produced between Australia and the United Kingdom. It was produced by Snow River Media and Buster Dandy Productions, and developed by The Jim Henson Company. The series premiered on ABC on 23 August 2006.[1]


The show starts off with one of the five animals telling a story: Faraway, an aardvark; Georgie, a penguin; Florrie, a grey kangaroo; Sam, a monkey; and Louisa, a polar bear. Each story has a moral to it.


All of the characters are puppets originally designed by Playhouse Disney Asia in the South East Asia, and built by Solution Studios.[1] All sets are cardboard and costumes are made with quilt fabric the same type on the bed they sit on telling these stories. The quilt is specially made with square pictures mostly based on a stories that is about to or has been already told. The series was shot in eight weeks in Australia, and dubbed in Britain.[2]
