The series consisted of 52 ten-minute episodes, which were broadcast on Children's ITV from 7 January 1987 to 20 March 1989. All episodes were written by Peter Reeves and directed by Franc Vose and Brian Little; narration and character voices were provided by Paul Nicholas.

The series was based upon the daily goings-on of a group of common invertebrate creatures that lived at the bottom of a garden around an old sundial.
