Maisy is a British-American children's animated television series based on the book series by Lucy Cousins. It is narrated by Neil Morrissey and Brian Greene in the US version. In the United Kingdom, it was broadcast on CITV (also broadcast on Nick Jr. in 2002.) In the United States, it aired on the Nick Jr. block of the Nickelodeon cable television network and on Noggin (now Nick Jr.) The series was produced by King Rollo Films and PolyGram Television and later as Universal Television when PolyGram folded into Universal, when the company itself was bought by beverage brand, Seagram.

It uses a reggae-influenced theme song and voice characterizations and sound effects by The Umbilical Brothers.


The show focuses on the lives of Maisy Mouse and her friends. A mellow-voiced narrator narrates the action and communicates with the characters while the animals go through their paces without speaking; they instead make various odd sounds and noises that sound like speaking. The narrator, however, can understand them easily because he's the only one that actually speaks. The animated series keeps the two-dimensional visual style of the books.



The series lasted for one season, consisting of 27 episodes. Each episode was made up of four segments.

Video releases

Maisy was released on VHS in the UK from 1999 until 2003, at which point it was replaced with DVD releases. Universal Studios Home Video released several Maisy VHSs in the US, most of them with the Macrovision copying protection system.
