Status: Partially Found

Handy Manny is a CGI-animated children's series that was created by Roger Bollen, Marilyn Sadler, and Rick Gitelson, and produced by Buena Vista Television and Nelvana Enterprises. It ran from September 16th, 2006 to February 14th, 2011 on Playhouse Disney, then ran on Disney Junior (Playhouse Disney's replacement) until February 14th, 2013.


In 2005, an 11-minute pilot was created for the series. Unlike the main series, which was animated by Two Presidents Productions,[1] the pilot was animated by DKP Studios (now known as Jam Filled Toronto). The pilot also used standard 3-D animation instead of cel-shading, and had more simplistic sets, the plot was mostly different from the final show, and it was eventually scrapped when another company (Nelvana) took over the show.

Plot Details

Marilyn Sadler confirmed some plot details in the pilot. In the pilot Manny worked outside of his house instead of having a workshop and Mr. Lopart was Manny's nextdoor neighbor. No more information is known about the pilot.


The only video footage of this pilot can be seen in a demo reel from DKP Studios' official website. Aside from a resume of CG artist Kyran Kelly, who directed the pilot, little information can be found.
