A Canadian television program airing since 1998, aimed at children that was created by Creator/WilliamJoyce. It once aired on the Playhouse Disney block of DisneyChannel on the United States and is currently seen in repeats on the 24/7 Disney Junior network, the successor of Playhouse Disney.

''Rolie Polie Olie'' centers on the title character, who by all appearances is a robot made out of spheres, and his family. His best friend is his next door neighbor, made out of cubes. He has a robot dog, and several inanimate objects have faces.

A {{Nelvana}} program.
