Phil's stand-alone production company, Windy Isle Productions, has also produced a number of web series. Including the much-lauded 'According to Kids' for CBC and 'How Much is Too Much' for YTV.
Zerby Derby A preschool show about little cars and trucks. What makes it different? It's completely live action. The toy cars and trucks live in the forest and have adventures. It's funny and cute and perfectly replicates the play-pattern recognition of a kid building in the sandbox. It plays on TVO, TFO and Knowledge in Canada and has been versioned in numerous countries around the world.
Science Max Mythbusters meets Bill Nye Take a science experiment kids do every day and do it again as big as possible. Phil has 'Maxxed Out' experiments over two full seasons of the show. It airs on TVO and is wildly popular among it's viewers. What makes it special? It's a funny science show. The experiments almost never work out right the first time, usually with hilarious results. This coupled with funny characters and Phil's natural enthusiasm make it a very different kind of science show.
