Pocoyo (2005-2009) is a Spanish children's AnimatedSeries, narrated by José María del Río. (Stephen Fry or Adal Ramones, depending on the version you watch). Tells the adventures of a young boy named Pocoyo, the duck Pato, the elephant Elly, and more. Notable for its minimalist style- the characters lack any textures and all of the action takes place on a white background, and there is no backstory.

Also notable for being absolutely, unbearably adorable.

!! This show contains examples of:
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Pato wears a hat.
* AerithAndBob: We have Pocoyo and Pato (as long as you didn't know that his name is duck in Spanish) then names like Elly and Fred.
* AnimatedSeries
* BigNo: Pocoyo gives one after breaking Ellie's favorite doll. Dramatic bird's eye zoom out and all.
* BilingualBonus: Pato means [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "duck"]] in Spanish.
** [[ADogNamedDog A Duck Named Duck]]
** Also, Pocoyo's Helicopter-Spaceship-Submarine thingy is called the "Vamoosh" which is a portmanteau of the onomatopaeia "Woosh" and "Vamos" ("Let's go" in Spanish)
** Pocoyo's own name is a combination of the words "poco" (little) and "yo" (me). Or in other words, "Little me".
* {{Catchphrase}}: Unsurprisingly (As he's the most intelligible character and the one who speaks the most) the narrator. "Hooray for X! And hooray for Pocoyo!"
* CloudCuckooLander: Fred the octopus, oh ''God'', Fred the octopus.
* EdutainmentShow: You'd be surprised, but beyond the cute dancing and the adorableness of the show, there are actually morals throughout the show.
* GentleGiant: Elly, who sometimes scares new characters with her boisterous size and finicky personality, yet is actually extremely kind.
* HairTriggerTemper: On the other hand, Pato gets angry somewhat easily - he's also the most serious and business-like character.
* HeavySleeper: Sleepy Bird.
* HeyItsThatVoice: It appears that Pocoyo's French voice actress is Leela from {{Futurama}}.
** StephenFry is the narrator for the English version, while Mexican comedian Adal Ramones does that role in the Latin American version.
* {{Keet}}: Baby Bird. Just look at that happy face. Also Octopus.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Pay attention! It's subtle, but most characters have one. The most obvious is Pato's.
* LimitedWardrobe: Except with Elly. When she dances, she puts on a leotard and tutu.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: By virtue of there not being [[CharacterOfTheDay Characters Of The Day]]. If a character makes an appearance in one episode, he ''will'' reappear again, no exceptions.
* MeaningfulName: See BilingualBonus above.
* NiceGuy: The narrator. He's always ready to intervene in all conflicts than arise, he is usually the one that administers the moral of the day, and the characters seem to like him quite a lot - for a disembodied voice he sure has a lot of personality.
* NoAntagonist
* NoFourthWall: The narrator, Stephen Fry, José María del Río, or Adal Ramones, depending on the version (English, Castilian Spanish, and Latin American Spanish, respectively) asks the viewer to various things from pepping up Pocoyo when he's feeling sad, to waking up Sleepy Bird.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Pocoyo's birthday is on October 14th, but when his "birthday" rolls around, he's still four!
* NiceHat: Pocoyo and Pato both have one.
* NonHumanSidekick: The ''entire cast''. Pocoyo is the only human.
** TokenHuman
* ParentalBonus: Pocoyo is surprisingly watchable by parents - and the creators probably know, as there are lots of small easter eggs that won't be noticed by kids. For example, in the episode "Boo", when Pocoyo scares Pato in the shower, it's very reminiscent of the famous shower scene in "Psycho". And, in the episode "Dance off!" Pato and Pocoyo hold a dance competition - and at one point Pocoyo starts playing air-guitar. The song that plays is very reminiscent of Metallica, and Pocoyo has Octopus on his head, looking a bit like Kirk Hammett.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Ellie and Pocoyo respectively. Thanks to simplistic character design and a lack of TertiarySexualCharacteristics its really the only way to determine their genders first glance.
** Subverted by the parents of the "little alien friend". The narrator assumes this about his mother and father, causing the pink dad to correct him with a grumpy look.
* RunningGag: Pocoyo and his friends dance at the every end of practically every episode.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Pocoyo wears blue, Elly's pink...
* TheUnintelligible: Ellie speaks in trumpet noises, Pato speaks with quacks, and Octopus speaks in random gibberish. Thankfully, the narrator knows what they're saying.
** Although it must be said that as ducks go, Pato's got just about the most expressive face since [[DaffyDuck Daffy]].
* ThirdPersonPerson: Pocoyo, though it's understandable since he's a toddler. "Pocoyo plays!" "Pocoyo dances!" or even "Pocoyo NO!" when he's angry.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Pato is able to do this due to his detachable limbs.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield / WhiteVoidRoom: All we know is that Pocoyo's World consists of a blank white space with random trees, houses, and other stuff. In some episodes, you go underwater and in space!
