Series / Tots TV

Tots TV is a puppet show for children by Ragdoll Productions (creators of Teletubbies, Brum and Rosie and Jim) for Central Independent Television, which was broadcast between 1992 and 1997.

The show is about three elf-like creatures called Tots, who live in a big secret house in the middle of nowhere. The protagonists are:
  • Tilly speaks Gratuitous French (Gratuitous Spanish in America), but understands English very well. She has a magic bag with her, which she likes to call a sac magique / bolsa mágica. She is good at playing the piccolo.
  • Tom is the cleverest of the tots, and the oldest. He wears glasses and has blue hair... similiar to Truman from Dino Babies.
  • Tiny is the youngest and has a Mickey Mouse-style voice, but with a heavy Essex accent.

Furryboo the rat lives with the tots, too, but that's a secret! The trio have a pet donkey which they nuture, who is named, well, Donkey.

The show was first broadcast on CITV, but was also shown on PBS Kids.
