El Jardín de Clarilú (English: Clarilú's Garden) is a pre-school targeted series on the Latin American Disney Junior Channel, being one of the first shows created regionally for Latin America. The show features a little girl named Clarilú who solves several mysteries taking place on her garden along with her best friend Lapiz, a pencil-dog. The show follows a Strictly Formula where Clarilú gets a letter from one of her friends at the beginning of the episode, which encourages her to find a lost object and figure out who sent the letter. The series attempts to blend in animation techniques with live-action segments, immersing the actors and puppets into an animated world.

El Jardín de Clarilú features examples of:

  • Alphabet Soup Cans: Most of times, Griselda, Pipo and Loli act as if they are unable or unwilling to help Clarilú unless she solves a spelling puzzle. They're the same characters that give out hints that lead one to believe they already know who sent the card.
  • Edutainment Show: The aim of the show is to teach little children about words and pronunciation, which is emphasized on the letters Clarilú receives.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: One of the episodes focused on Lapiz losing his "funny hole". It turned out to be a hole that's fun to play with.
    • The ABCs are an A, a B and a C.
  • Fake Interactivity: Clarilú often finds herself talking to the audience, especially when trying to figure out the clues.
  • Four-Legged Insect: Irina and Loli are two interesting examples, since they are a butterfly and a dragonfly, respectively, yet both are bipedal. Griselda the spider, though, is represented with her respective eight legs.
  • Informed Species: Cuac and Duvet. They're supposed to be ducks, but they look much more like pelicans. Their deformed beaks might be the cause of it, though.

  • Improbable Hair Style: Clarilú's hair is as much as you would like to go with a girl her age.
  • No Indoor Voice: Irina screams every other word at the top of her lungs. She also uses a megaphone.
  • Portable Hole: Lapiz's "funny hole".
  • Rock Trio: The ABCs, naturally.
  • Talking Animal: Roco, Loli, Irina and Griselda are a talking snail, dragonfly, butterfly and spider.
  • Theme Tune: AEIOU, which gets a reprise at the end of each episode, courtesy of the ABCs.
