Charlie and Lola
Charlie and Lola
Coming to CBeebies on Monday 7 November
"I have a little sister called Lola and she is small and very funny. Sometimes I have to keep an eye on her. This can be a hard job because Lola
is extremely busy doing lots of things all at once."
Based on the award-winning books by Lauren Child, Charlie and Lola is a charming and
imaginative new animation series which will captivate pre-school children and their parents
Charlie is seven – he likes rockets, making racing cars and playing football with his friend Marv,
who lives downstairs.
Lola is four, but very nearly five. She likes pink milk, chimpanzees and
her best friend Lotta. She is fascinated by everything and very independent!
As they come up against life's daily problems (be it a spider or learning how to share), they use
their own method of problem solving: imagination and fantasy.
And when Lola is unsure or
worried, Charlie is there to support her with humour and logic.
Aimed at three to seven-year-olds, the series is voiced by children and revels in their language, but
the key to the series lies in the special relationship shared between two siblings.
animated in the UK and reflecting the style of the books which have won acclaim the world
over, Charlie and Lola is characterized by distinctive and imaginative production techniques,
using two-dimensional animation combined with a 'cut-out' style, film archive and photographs.
