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 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.
