Pocoyo (Pocoyó in Spanish and stylised as POCOYO) is an animated interactive preschool comedy television series created by David Cantolla, Luis Gallego, and Guillermo García Carsí, and is produced by the Spanish animation company Zinkia Entertainment, with the first two series were co-productions with Granada Kids, and the first series was a co-production of Cosgrove Hall Films, both in the United Kingdom.

Four series have been produced, each consisting of 52 seven-minute episodes.[1] English actor and comedian Stephen Fry narrates the English-language version[2][3] of the first two series of the show, while Stephen Hughes narrates the third series, called Let's Go Pocoyo, and the fourth series. José María del Río narrates the Castilian Spanish version of the show. In 2009, a new spin-off show called Pocoyo World was created.

On July 2022, the fifth series has been greenlit to commemorate the show's 20th anniversary which was supposed to release in mid-2023, but was delayed for a 2024 release. It will feature significant changes for the characters designs and will feature more new characters such as Pocoyo's little sister, Pocoyina.[4] Similar to the series 4 episode "Dragon Island", five of the episodes will be mixed into live action.[5]

In 2023, the franchise was acquired by Animaj.[6] As then, the series was renewed for a sixth series around 2025 or 2026. A third feature film was announced and would be releasing around 2027 or 2028.

Overview

Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a four-year-old kid who is dressed all in blue, interacting with his friends Elly, Pato, Nina, Fred the Octopus, Loula, Roberto, Baby Bird, Caterpillar and Sleepy Bird. Viewers are encouraged to recognize situations that Pocoyo is in, and things that are going on with or around him. The Narrator usually speaks explicitly to the viewers and to the characters as well. Each character has its own distinctive dance and also a specific sound (usually from a musical instrument), and most episodes end with the characters dancing.

Development and production

Pocoyo's name was provided by David Cantolla, one of the creators, after his then two-year-old daughter used it in her nightly "Dear Child Jesus (Jesusito de mi vida [es])" prayers saying "Eres niño poco yo" ("You're a child little me"), but not "Eres niño como yo" ("You're a child like me"). "Pocoyo" could roughly be translated to English as "little me", though it is a made-up construction.[7] The show is animated with Softimage XSI software.[8]

The show was first announced to be in development in March 2003.[9] In October, it was announced that Carlton International would co-produce and distribute the series, and that production delivery on the first half of the first series would begin in September 2004.

In March 2004, Novel Entertainment joined in production as co-producer with Carlton and Zinkia. However, nothing else was known about this initial announcement otherwise.[10][11]

The show was showcased by Granada International at MIP TV in April 2005, with a broadcast window for CITV announced for the autumn. It was also announced that Stephen Fry would narrate the series in the United Kingdom.[12]

The series was renewed for a second series on May 12, 2006.[13] The makers also wish to embark upon other projects, one of which may be a Pocoyo movie.[14] In June 2006, Pocoyo was awarded the Cristal Award for the "Best TV Production" at the 30th Annecy International Animated Film Festival.[15]

In April 2011, Zinkia and ITV Global Entertainment announced they would end their co-distribution partnership on the series and that Zinkia would now hold worldwide distribution of the series.[16]

In May 2023, Zinkia announced the sale of the franchise to French children's investment firm Animaj for an indisclosed amount. The sale would include all IP rights, distribution, and licensing to the franchise but would exclude the educational portions, which Zinkia would retain. In exchange for the deal, Zinkia would acquire a 7.99% in Animaj.[17] The deal was closed on September 20, 2023.[18]

Four series have been produced with 52 episodes. There is also an unreleased episode entitled "The See-Saw".[19] This episode was only released in a special version of "El Show de Pocoyo" on DVD during 2009.

Series 3 is known as Let's Go Pocoyo, with episodes which have different segments. The 1st segment contains one relating to the story and the 2nd part involves stuff like counting, exercising, and learning about shapes. In the end, there is a music video recapping the story.

Series 4 consists of episodes similar in the first two series, but now with less audience engagements from the narrator and introduces another human character Nina and her Robot friend, Roberto as the main characters. Originally in YouTube, he first half produced 26 episodes and it became successful.[20][21] Because of its success, the second half with 26 episodes was produced exclusively on the Spanish children's channel Clan TVE, ABC Kids in Australia, and exclusively in the Pocoyo Party game for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch.[22]

Since 2016, there are Specials in relation with the holidays each year with few relating to sports. Following the success of Series 4, there are episodes produced as a web series, and both series are exclusively online in YouTube. In "A Very Special Guest", a Christmas Special for 2019, Yanko, a giant snow yeti is introduced as a main character.

Series 5 will air in 2024.
