From a media release:
Acclaimed Canadian comedy series, Tiny Plastic Men, returns to Super Channel for third season
Tiny Plastic Men, the acclaimed, original comedy series from Edmonton based Mosaic Entertainment, returns to Super Channel, Canadaâ€™s only national English pay television network, for the season three premiere on Monday, March 2 at 9:30 p.m. ET (SC2).
Tiny Plastic Men follows a trio of nerdy misfit toy testers and their absurd antics at the fictional Gottfried Brothers Toy and Train Company. Testing these weird and often dangerous toys is the easy part. Itâ€™s the eccentric bosses, hostile co-workers, and oddball guests that make the jobâ€¦interesting.
Created by, and starring, comedy veterans Chris Craddock, Matt Alden and Mark Meer, the episodes are filled with rapid-fire jokes, delightfully twisted situations and hilarious sketches, all coloured by the creatorsâ€™ oddball sense of nerdy humour. The success of the second season saw the series nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards including Best Comedy Series, Best Writing in a Comedy Program or Series (Chris Craddock) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role (Mark Meer).
In the season three premiere episode entitled, â€œCrad Van Winkle,â€ Crad awakens to discover that heâ€™s lost a year of his life and nothing at Gottfried Bros Toys is the same as it was. Can he go back to the beginning and return Gottfried Bros to the beloved status quo?
Special guest stars for the upcoming season include Alan Thicke (Growing Pains) as Judge Andy Jury in an episode entitled â€œThe Ex-Factorâ€, Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall) as a whacky Willy Wonka type character, and hockey hero Georges Laraque reprises his role as Gaston LeBoeuf, an openly gay Canadian linebacker.
