Chibi Tiny Tales

Chibiverse is an American animated television series developed by Gino Guzzardo, produced by Disney Television Animation and premiered on Disney Channel on July 30, 2022. The series is based on the studio's Chibi Tiny Tales short series.


The series centers on the adventures of "chibi" versions of Disney Channel characters as they live in their own universe. The episodes feature several Chibi Tiny Tales shorts, hosted by specific characters who, unlike the shorts, actually speak. As the hosts introduce themselves and announce the next short, a plot is intertwined throughout these snippets until the episode's conclusion.

In the second season, the series switches to a faux game show format.


Other franchises represented, albeit with no voice acting, include: American Dragon: Jake Long, Camp Rock, Fish Hooks, Gargoyles, Gravity Falls, Kim Possible, Halloweentown, and High School Musical.


In July 2022, Disney Television Animation announced that the series, based on the Chibi Tiny Tales shorts, would premiere on July 30.[2] The show consists of shorts centered on "chibi" versions of characters from various Disney Channel programs such as Amphibia and Phineas and Ferb, as well as Disney Channel films such as Zombies and High School Musical, compiled into a half-hour series.[3] Some shorts are sometimes repeated.


Rob Cantor and Dan Siegel wrote the theme song, with Cantor performing alongside Baraka May.[4]

After asking Molly McGee for advice, Anne, Sprig, Cricket, and Tilly summon the ghost of the Chibi Theater: Scratch. After Scratch denies causing the bad luck, Sprig discovers that Polly was causing the bad luck as she was not asked to host the show.
