Cute children's TV with good messages
25 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Barbapapas are a family of blobby beings that can transform their shape into anything they wish. The episodes are only 6 or so minutes long, but almost every one packs into it a complete self-contained story. The stories are humorous and probably enjoyable for kids aged 2 to 10. Most of them convey an environmental or social message, such as caring for the environment, the animals, without being patronizing or obsessive about it.

The quality of the animations is excellent given the series is over 30 years old! The family of Barbapapas holds traditional values and their 7 children have varying interests, for example in the case of Barbakuss a love of animals.

Good-hearted, simple, traditional children's series which remains a timeless classic.
