Television’s most loved monkeys, Tee and Mo, are back with a brand new musical special - their tenth to launch on CBeebies! Big Boots Birthday: A Tee and Mo Mini Musical features three brand new songs (their catchiest ever!!) and once again boasts the always brilliant voice of BBC Radio 6’s Lauren Laverne

Big Boots Birthday takes place on the morning of Tee’s birthday, and he’s near exploding with excitement! He’s a whole year older and a whole inch taller, which can only mean that he’s finally a Big Boy. Best of all, Mo has given him a brand new pair of Big Boy Boots to wear!  However, a chance encounter with his old favourite Froggie Wellies gives him pause for thought. Does being big mean that he can’t be little anymore? As ever, Mo is on hand to listen to his worry and reassure him that no matter how big he gets, she’ll always be his Mum. Cue the best birthday party ever!

The Tee and Mo Mini Musical reimagines the musical genre for pre-schoolers, aged 2-5. The 11-minute episode is designed to help young children feel understood, and focuses on the theme of what it feels like to grow up. 

Written and Directed by Plug-in Media’s Creative Director, Dominic Minns, Big Boots Birthday sees yet another successful collaboration with BAFTA-winning composers Ellie Wyatt and Joss Peach. The Tee and Mo Mini Musical was produced entirely through remote-working, due to the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. Plug-in’s team of exceptionally talented production staff and animators rose to the challenge of developing new workflows for efficient collaboration under unique circumstances. 

Big Boots Birthday: A Tee and Mo Mini Musical was released on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer on Saturday 21st November 2020, alongside an EP of the songs on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon Music.
