Little Prairie Dogs was originally broadcast on BBC2 in February 2010 as part of CBeebies.
Using existing footage from the BBC's Natural World 'Prairie Dogs' programme - accompanied by a fun, child-friendly narrative voiceover - Little Prairie Dogs brings the day-to-day lives of one of America's most charismatic animals to the CBeebies audience.
The programme follows the daily adventures of two sets of prairie dog pups - brothers Snow and Ashki, and Sage and her younger brother Tate - as they learn the 'Prairie Dog Code', meet their animals neighbours, learn about the weather and other fun discoveries.
The little prairie dogs of Prairie Dog Town are chatty, cheeky and very cute.
