About[edit]

Toopy loves life. Every little thing - from talking socks to magic carpets. But most of all Toopy loves his best friend Binoo, who's not just sweet and adorable but smart too.

For Toopy and Binoo, life is delightful and simple. Everything swings between surprises, pleasures and zany situations. Binoo loves to follow Toopy on incredible imaginary adventures. For them, the sky has no limit.

Co-produced by Spectra Animation (Echo Media), in association with Tele-Quebec, Nickelodeon (Canada), Treehouse TV, Radio-Canada, PBS Kids, YTV and Discovery Kids; with the support of the Canadian Television Fund, Quebec Film and Television Tax Credit, Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, the Shaw Rocket Fund, Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund and Fonds Quebecor.

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 (formerly Spectra Animation) then brought them to television, both in English and French versions, dubbing their English names to "Toopy and Binoo."[3]
