The Three Friends and Jerry (Swedish: De tre vännerna och Jerry) is a Swedish animated television series. A Swedish/German/United Kingdom co-production, the series was created by Magnus Carlsson[1] and produced by Fontana Pictures, Happy Life and TV Loonland.


Jerry is the new kid in town who does not fit with any of his schoolmates. This series shows his best attempts to try to be liked by the 'Three Friends' who do not want him to be part of their group but still let him hang out with them as long as he helps them with their problems. They also fall for a group of the girls in town, who refuse to date them and refer to them as Ponks. Apart from school, the group have to contend with parents, bullies and their own conflicts.


The setting location of the series is left unclear. But the houses and architecture depicted in the series are European or European-like, suggesting a location in Europe. The creators of the series likely took inspiration from the architecture of Sweden and the United Kingdom, since the series was a Swedish/British co-production.
