Little Bill is a Nick Jr. animated series based on the popular book series of the same name, which was written by Bill Cosby with illustrations by Varnette P. Honeywood. It was adapted for TV by Fracaswell Hyman, who was also the head writer. The show premiered on November 28, 1999.
Set in Philadelphia, the show centers on Little Bill Glover as he explores everyday life through his imagination. Little Bill lives with his parents, his great-grandmother, his older sister April and brother Bobby. At the end of every show, he "breaks the fourth wall" by summarizing his day to the audience before going to bed.
Sometimes, he even talks to his pet hamster, Elephant. Then, one of his family members says, "Little Bill, who are you talking to?" and he giggles. This was an ongoing catchphrase that closed every show.
