Bite Size is a british television programme produced by Walt Disney Television International that originally aired as a stand-alone programme on Disney Channel UK's unbranded "Under-Fives" block in 1998, before becoming a Playhouse Disney UK presentation strand during the "Big Dave and Little Alex" era from 1999-2006.

The strand, alongside PJ's Bedtime were the only strands to remain after Dave and Alex left in August 2006 and aired until April 2008.

The strand was also replicated on most Playhouse Disney blocks and channels outside North America.


The show was a children's cookery program where Dave Benson Phillips (referred to as 'Deep Fried Dave'), Karl Woolley (referred to as "Krispy Karl") or Sophie Aldred (referred to as "Stir Fry Sophie"), showed kids how to make Disney-themed dishes, with a puppet oven glove called Mitzi (puppeteered by Helena Smee). For example, in one episode, the recipe was a 'Simba Salad' (themed after Simba from The Lion King).

They would also be assisted by numerous objects in the Bite Size Kitchen such as Ping the Microwave, Pong the Bin, Freeda the Fridge, Mabel the Table, and a trio of singing frying pans, who would order Dave to wash his hands should he forget.

After Dave left the channel in August 2006, Bite Size became a standalone show presented by Karl and Sophie, until the strand was finally dropped in May 2008, being the last of the original strands to be removed.
