Pocoyo – teamwork trumps personal ego

Overview of the show: Pocoyo is a Spanish-made 3D animated series made for pre-schoolers. The show has no real setting – all of the characters exist in a largely empty white void. This has the effect of emphasising all of the people and their activities as well as setting it apart aesthetically from all other kids’ shows.

Pocoyo is a flawed though curious boy and is the only human character. He is joined in most episodes by Pato, Elly, Loula and Sleepy Bird; a duck, elephant, puppy and bird respectively. Pocoyo learns simple lessons with the aid of his friends – to overcome his (relatively minor) selfishness in order to cooperate and solve their problems as a team.
