Big Cook, Little Cook is a television series for nursery school aged children, broadcast on BBC television channels (particularly the CBeebies digital television channel). The programme is set in the kitchen of a café, with two chef characters, Big Cook Ben and Little Cook Small.
Ben is a full sized adult, but Small is only a few inches tall (somewhat ironic, as his actor is the taller of the two) and flies around on a wooden spoon. Ben and Small are played by Steve Marsh and Dan Wright, respectively.
In 2005, the duo featured in commercials for Betfair, the Channel 4's official sponsor, during The Ashes cricket series, being shown as two part advertisements at the beginning and end of each break. Trailers for the programme on the BBC spoofed the food adverts of Marks & Spencer, which featured the voice of Dervla Kirwan. Until February 2012, CBeebies aired repeats on the channel.
An official magazine was launched in August 2005.
