Introduction is the first level in LittleBigPlanet. It introduces basic movements and gameplay through animated credits and photos of the development team.
Upon starting LittleBigPlanet for the first time with no save data, this level will automatically start after the intro. It contains no Prize Bubbles, and is the only story level with Stephen Fry's commentary in it. After completing this level, the player gains access to your Pod and The Gardens.
These are the names of the Media Molecule development team shown in the level, ordered as you move through the level from left to right:
- Men Lu
- During the customization tutorial, it is shown that one of the options for the Popit color is black. Having a black Popit in LittleBigPlanet is only possible through a glitch.
- The Introduction level is a reference to children's TV programs Vision On, Take Hart, and Hartbeat. These BBC art programs, hosted by Tony Hart, showcased a gallery of art made and submitted by kids while the theme song Left Bank Two played in the background. The gallery of MM employees is a nod towards the art programs. Kenneth Young, sound designer of LBP, said he was glad they could use Left Bank Two to "introduce a whole new generation of kids to being creative and making stuff."
