Pocoyo (Pocoyó in Spanish) is a children's comedy animated television series created by Guillermo García Carsí, Colman López, Luis Gallego and David Cantolla, and is produced by Zinkia Entertainment. Four series have been produced, with 5 series each consisting of 52 seven-minute episodes, while the fourth series consisted of 26.[4] English actor and comedian Stephen Fry narrates the English-language version[5][6] of the first two seasons of the show, while Stephen Hughes narrates the third season, called Let's Go Pocoyo, and the fourth season. José María del Río narrates the Castilian Spanish version of the show. In 2016, a new spin-off show called Pocoyo Planet was created.

Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a 4-year-old boy, interacting with his friends Pato (a duck), Elly (an elephant), and Loula (a dog). 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.

In the United Kingdom, it was originally broadcast on CITV, a children's strand on the ITV network. In September 2005, Channel 5 acquired terrestrial rights in the United Kingdom to the first and second series, making it part of the Milkshake! strand. The show, however, will continue to air on the CITV Channel. Other broadcasters in the English speaking countries include RTÉ in the Republic of Ireland, Syndication and on Univision in LATAM Spanish, Treehouse TV in Canada,[6] CBeebies in Australia, Playhouse Disney in Asia and TVNZ in New Zealand.

In 2010, the show premiered on Nick Jr. in the United States, it was originally shown as 7-minute segments between shows before being expanded to a half-hour show from July 23, 2011 to January 2, 2015. Currently, episodes of the show were made available on the Noggin app. Episodes of "Pocoyo Planet" are also currently on the app as well. It also airs as reruns on PBS Kids, packaged at the end of Peep and the Big Wide World.

In Spain, TVE2 started broadcasting the second series in April 2008. The third season began airing in 2010 under the title Let's Go Pocoyo and was designed to teach English to Spanish preschoolers. The makers also wish to embark upon other projects, one of which may be a Pocoyo movie.[8] In June 2006, Pocoyo was awarded the Cristal Award for the "Best TV Production" at the 30th Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

About

Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a 4-year-old boy, interacting with his animals Baby Bird, Elly the elephant, Fred the octopus, Loula the dog and Pato the duck. 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

Pocoyo's name was provided by David Cantolla, one of the creators, after his then two-year-old daughter used it in her nightly prayers saying "Eres niño poco yo" ("You're a child little me"). "Pocoyo" could roughly be translated to English as "little me", though it is a made-up construction.[7] The show is created with XSI software.[8]
