Elliot Moose is a Canadian children's live-action and animated television series produced by Nelvana for PBS in the United States; the series premiered on September 30, 1998.[1][2] The series is based on Andrea Beck's children's book series, Elliot Moose.[3] 104 episodes were produced.

The show concerns a young moose named Elliot who lives in a place called "the Big House". He goes on adventures with his friends Beaverton, Lionel, Socks, and Paisley.[4]

The series was developed by Jed MacKay and produced by Marianne Culbert. The series was unique in that half of the stories were animated, and half were live action, reflecting children's real world of play and their imaginary world. The music was composed by Bruce Ley and Jed MacKay.
