Little Lord Fauntleroy, also known as Little Prince Cedie (小公子セディ, Shōkōshi Sedi), is a Japanese anime series produced by Nippon Animation in 1988 and was broadcast on the World Masterpiece Theater.

It is an animation staple that showcased each year an animated version of a different classical book or story. The series is based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1886 book, Little Lord Fauntleroy.

In the Philippines, this work was aired by ABS-CBN in the early 1990s (with some rebroadcasts at the 21st century) under the title of Cedie, Ang Munting Prinsipe, with the spin-offs live-action film of the same title by Star Cinema. The film adaptation of Little Lord Fauntleroy starred former child actor Tom Taus Jr. as the eponymous character.

In the United Kingdom, the series premiered as an English dub which aired on ITV between 1995 and 1998.


This work is a home drama which depicts the process of a grumpy grandfather and surroundings of a noble family moved by his grandson and becoming mild. It is also a feature that many animal characters have appeared.

The story is divided into two stages : the first stage is episodes in New York, and the second stage is episodes in the United Kingdom.

In "the World Masterpiece Theater" series, a boy became the main character for the first time in eight years since "the Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Since this work, a work with a boy as the main character appeared in a relatively short span.


The story concerns an American boy named Cedric Errol (more fondly known as "Cedie"[1]), who at an early age finds that he is the sole heir to a British earldom and leaves New York City to take up residence in his ancestral castle. After some initial resistance, he is joined by his middle-class mother (whom Cedie calls "Dearest"), widow of heir James Errol.

His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, intends to teach the boy to become an aristocrat, but Cedie inadvertently teaches his grandfather compassion and social justice, and the artless simplicity and motherly love of Dearest warms the old man's heart.

Hikaru Nishida who sang theme songs of this work, did not appear as a cast (dubbing voice) in the main story, but acted Cedie in the musical of this work.[2]

Until this work, singers of theme songs appeared in the main story in some way, such as casts and musicals. However, since the successor "the Adventures of Peter Pan", singers of theme songs do not always appear in the main story. (e.g. Yukiko Iwai in "the Adventures of Peter Pan" did not act any casts.)


Discourse of casts

Ai Orikasa who made her debut with this work, said as follows. (the original text in Japanese)

緒方賢一さんと子供ミュージカルの舞台で出会ってなければ、声優のお仕事をしていなかった‥『小公子セディ』主役デビューなんてラッキーなことも‥振り返ると人々の作って下さった流れに乗っかっての今である。 その是非は問わずに前に進もう!若人のエネルギーで今また一つ支流が生まれそう^.^
(In Ai Orikawa's twitter, 9 September 2016)[3]

In other words, she thanks the debut with "Little Lord Fauntleroy".
