In 1991, a French-American Television Series aired on Fox & La Cinq (a defunct French Television Network), called Little Shop, said show being based on the Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors, which was based on the 1960 movie The Little Shop of Horrors. While the credit for the concept for this adaptation is given to Ellen Levy & Mark Edward Edens, the show was created by Jean Chalopin (best known as the founder of DIC Entertainment & the co-creator of Inspector Gadget), and was produced by animator Tom Tataranowicz (who first animated for He-Man and the Masters of the Universe).

The show was about Seymour Krelborn, an adolescent, self-proclaimed nerd who works in a little flower shop owned by Mr. Mushnik. His daughter, Audrey, is the love of Seymour's life, yet she doesn't seem to notice, or even understand his affections. Also there's a bully named Paine Driller who constantly targets Seymour in his bullying. Seymour also has a pet flytrap named Junior. Junior was once a 200 million year old seed until he was found by Seymour in a junk yard. Once he was cared for by Seymour, he sprouted into a Venus Flytrap that raps and talks in hip-hop dialect. Unlike the musical, he's on Seymour's side and also has eyeballs.

The horror elements that were in the musical & 1960 movie were cut, as Little Shop was a children's show. Little Shop ran for only 13 half-hour episodes until it ended only two months after its premiere in September of 1991. As of January 3, 2016, only four (one of them is incomplete) episodes and a promo of the show (the pilot episode, titled "Bad Seed", the 4th Episode "Unfair Science", the 6th Episode "I Loathe a Parade", and the 7th Episode "Air Junior" (Incomplete)) are known to be publicly available, due to VHS recordings that were subsequently uploaded to YouTube.
