Meet Superworm… a hero with a difference!! Super-long and super-strong, you can always count on him to be on hand to help out all the other animals and insects. Whether he’s saving Baby Toad from an accident, rescuing Beetle from falling down a well or even good-naturedly offering himself up as skipping rope for some bored bees, Superworm is a reliable hero who we should aspire to be like! 

However, Superworm is part of a great team with his best friend Butterfly, even though he too often takes all the credit. When the horrible  Wizard Lizard hears about Superworm’s special skills, he sends his evil servant Crow to kidnap Superworm. Despite her lack of credit, with her friend in deep trouble, Butterfly comes to the rescue, convincing the other creatures to help her with a daring plan… Will the plan be enough?

Available to stream on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, Superworm is a Magic Light Pictures TV animated adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s picture book.
