Toopy and Binoo is a 2005 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. Another television series was produced as a live action spin-off show titled Toopy and Binoo Vroom Vroom Zoom.[2]

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


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]
