Little Roy follows the everyday adventures of five-year-old Roy O'Brien, an enthusiastic, inquisitive and playful little boy. In fact, he's just like any other boy his age, except for one thing - he's a cartoon!

This series is a live action/animation hybrid with Little Roy as the central character. Each episode follows a day in the life of Little Roy, as his cartoon abilities and enthusiasm cause some form of mayhem or misunderstanding.

To solve his real life quandary, Little Roy escapes into his imagination. In a full cartoon sequence, he takes on the persona of 'Wonder Roy', and with his sidekick Finn, he plays out his particular predicament of the day and finds a solution!
