Toopy and Binoo is a Canadian children's television series broadcast by Treehouse TV, Télé Québec, and produced by Spectra Animation which has since become Echo Media.[citation needed] The television series has currently changed to a live action television show titled Toopy and Binoo: Vroom Vroom Zoom.[1]

Format[edit]

Toopy and Binoo is an animated series for preschoolers based on the popular books created by Dominique Jolin.[2]

Creation[edit]

Toupie et Binou was the original title of the children books collection written by Dominique Jolin; the books also appeared in English translation as Washington and Deecee. Binoo then appeared in a small series of his own. Echo Media then brought them to television, both in English and French version, dubbing their English names to "Toopy and Binoo".[citation needed]

Characters[edit]

Toopy is a rat that is big and Binoo is a little cat.[3]
