The infamous trio of nerdy toy testers is back for season three. Tiny Plastic Men, an original comedy series from Edmonton-based Mosaic Entertainment, is set to air Monday, March 2 on Super Channel. The episodes take place at the fictional Gottfried Brothers Toy and Train Company starring comedy creators Chris Craddock, Mark Meers and St. Albert’s Matt Alden.
Not only do the testers deal with weird and dangerous toys, but they also put up with eccentric bosses, hostile co-workers and oddball guests.
Season two was successful enough to be nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards: Best Comedy Series, Best Writing in a Comedy Series (Chris Craddock) and Best Performance by An Actor (Mark Meers).
In season three’s premiere episode titled Crad Van Winkle, Crad wakes up to discover he’s lost a year of his life and nothing at the toy factory is the same as it was. Special guests also make the occasional appearances. Alan Thicke (Growing Pains) shows up as a judge, Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall) drops by as a wacky Willy Wonka type and hockey hero Georges Laraque reprises his role as Gaston LeBoeuf, an openly gay linebacker.
