About the Site

- Site (program) Summary -

Toopy and Binoo invite preschoolers to delve into their fantastic world through short compelling stories. Each story begins in the real world, where Toopy seizes an opportunity to slip into an imaginary universe. Humor and the absurd combine in a series of twists and turns before children are brought back into the real world in an ending that is often unexpected and delightful. Deliberately free of moralizing, these stories rather encourage young viewers to use their imagination and look at things with a fresh perspective.

Imagination

For Toopy and Binoo, the imagination is a source of infinite pleasure. Just by using their imaginations, they have fun becoming different characters, transforming familiar objects into unusual devices, imagining crazy games and coming up with such funny and original solutions to the problems they encounter that they actually become fun! With Toopy and Binoo, there's no need for toys, ten fingers and a big imagination are all you need!

Humor

Toopy and Binoo are naturally happy and approach life with gusto. Everything is a source of fun for them. Their open natures provide an endless source of humor, especially Toopy's naiveté, because young viewers identify with him (when they were small, they didn't know either, but now that they're bigger, they love to laugh at Toopy!).

Friendship and Mutual Support

Toopy and Binoo share everything. They are a joyful pair who never get discouraged. Binoo wants a banana? Nothing can stop Toopy from finding one in the jungle. As soon as Binoo is confronted with a problem, Toopy dashes to his rescue with all the power of his imagination. And every time Toopy embarks on a new adventure, Binoo is at his side. Their support extends to their friends. As they help the insomniac monsters fall asleep or the dragons find their true love, each outdoes the other in imagination!
