Abstract: Recently Koornwinder found an addition formula for the little $ q$-Legendre polynomials by using Masuda et al.'s result that they are related to the matrix elements of the irreducible unitary representation of the twisted $ {\text{SU(2)}}$ quantum group. Here we give an alternate derivation of the addition formula by using some summation and transformation formulas of basic hypergeometric series.
