Toopy and Binoo is a 2006 Canadian children's animation television series broadcast by Treehouse TV, Télé Québec and Radio-Canada produced by Spectra Animation which has since become Echo Media.[1] It was based upon the children's book Toupie et Binou. One season of the television series was produced as a live action television show titled Toopy and Binoo Vroom Vroom Zoom.[2]

The brand has had a solid growth path since its launch and has evolved from a publishing/television series to a fully integrated preschool property with remarkable success in all key categories including publishing, television, home entertainment, licensing & merchandising, toys, apparel, live events, vacation hotel resort programs and the digital space.

Seasons 1 & 2 have been licensed to broadcasters around the world, airing in over 175 countries and dubbed into 30 languages. Over 1 million DVDs have been sold and the YouTube videos have reached nearly 200 million views.

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".[3]
