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 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 July 2022, Disney Television Animation announced that the series, based on the Chibi Tiny Tales shorts, would premiere on July 30.[1] 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.[2] Some shorts are sometimes repeated.


Rob Cantor and Dan Siegel wrote the theme song, with Cantor performing alongside Baraka May.[3]

Molly McGee and Tilly Green start the first "Chibiverse" show, which they plan to end with a big spectacle. However, Cricket Green and Scratch have a heated argument on whether the spectacle should be a fireworks show or a pizza party, respectively. After voting ends in a tie and Scratch and Cricket attempted to sabotage each other, Scratch ends up winning by convincing Tilly to vote for him. Cricket, however, ultimately finds a compromise by using Dr. Doofenshmirtz' fireworks launcher to shoot fireworks made of pizza.

At the start of the show, Hop Pop breaks theatrical superstitions by wishing Anne and Sprig good luck and saying Macbeth. The Chibi Theater begins to experience bad luck, which only worsens after Hop Pop finds a 13-leaf clover. 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. The chibis then end the show with a human pyramid, which topples after Cricket gloats.
