Western Animation / Chloe's Closet

Go To

Dress-up is a game we play, each and every single day. We can be most anything, fairy, doctor, dancer, king.

Chloe's Closet is a preschool edutainment series produced by MoonScoop. It airs on PBS Kids Sprout in the United States and Toon Disney in Canada. The show focuses on 4-year-old Chloe, who has an amazing imagination. Along with her friends and her security blanket, Lovely Carrot, Chloe regularly plays dress-up, using various costumes to go into Chloe's world and have all kinds of adventures, while solving problems or issues they have along the way.


The main cast are:

  • Chloe: A young girl with a big imagination. She's created her own imaginary world that she and her friends regularly use when playing dress-up and having adventures. Chloe has a kind heart and is always up for adventure.
  • Lovely Carrot: Chloe's security blanket/Imaginary Friend. He's a small yellow blanket, with a toy duck head attached. In Chloe's imaginary world, Lovely Carrot comes to life. He's always trying to help Chloe out and look after her, but he can be a bit of a klutz.
  • Tara: Tara is Chloe's best friend. Being half a year older than her friends, she considers herself to be older and wiser. Tara can be a bit bossy and usually tries to take charge on adventures. She never quite seems to get that that's Chloe's job, though.
  • Jet: A boy who often plays with Chloe. He usually tries to turn play time towards more boyish games, but is always there to help her out.

  • Riley: Another boy who plays with Chloe. Riley tends to have his own way of doing things and it usually works for him. Occasionally Riley can dive into things before getting the full picture and it can lead him into trouble.
  • Danni: Another of Chloe's friends. Danni is a tomboy who prefers puddle jumping to playing with dolls. She's always up for an adventure, but can be a bit too competitive for her own good at times.
  • Lily: Lily is a gentle girl, who loves more girly activities. She tends to criticize herself and sometimes needs to be convinced to give new things a try.
  • Mac: Lily's younger brother. He's still learning to talk, but usually manages to get the point across. Mac looks up to his sister and the two tend to get along fairly well.


Chloe's Closet contains examples of:

  • Anachronism Stew: Chloe was taught that cave people and dinosaurs didn't live at the same time, but they do in her world.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Jet, but he pales in comparison to Danni, who has brown skin and hair, black eyes and, supposedly, Scottish heritage.
  • Bamboo Technology: Vehicles in Chloe's imaginary world tend to be made out of arts and crafts supplies, such as buttons, cardboard boxes, paper towel tubes and paper plates.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Chloe (blonde), Danni and Lily (brunettes), and Tara (redhead).
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In one episode, the kids dressed up as pop stars and sang a rock version of the theme song!
  • Catchphrase: Chloe is quick to remind people that anything can happen in her world. The kids often say, "Pickle!" when something goes wrong, though Tara and Chloe prefer "Oh, Crumbs!" and "Lollipops!", respectively.
  • Conspicuous CG: A lot of the backgrounds shown while Chloe and her friends are imagining are very obvious CGI. For example, in one episode, Chloe and her friends become firefighters, and basically the whole background is CGI, including their fire truck!
  • Flying Brick: Chloe becomes one when the kids dress up as super heroes.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Everyone (other than the nonhumans) have four fingers on each hand, but this is averted in the end of one episode, where Chloe counts five fingers on each hand when she tells her mom that she learned to count to ten.
  • Four-Girl Ensemble: Chloe is the sweet one, Tara is the wise one, Danni is the tomboyish one, and Lily is the girly one.
    • Alternately, Chloe is the girly one and Lily is the sweet one.
  • Imaginary Friend: Lovely Carrot, of course. Though Chloe also has Soggy the Frog, Hootey-hoo the owl, and Whiz the toy Robot Dog.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Chloe has blond hair and is very kind to everyone.
  • Literal Genie: The kids run into one in one episode. Though he's really just a kid, who's still learning.
  • Living Toys: Chloe, Lily and Mac once became doctors and nurses in a doll hospital where the toys were alive. Including a doll receptionist with only one eye.
    • Also Lovely Carrot, but you knew that already.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: There have been at least two different kinds. Normally the girls dress up as standard fairies living in a forest, but at least once they were tooth fairies instead.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: The girls dress up as fairly standard mermaids, though they're not petty or jealous.
  • Papa Wolf: Lovely Carrot tends to be this toward Chloe. He doesn't quite get that nothing is actually dangerous in her world.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Chloe.
  • Pun-Based Title: The episode titles tend to be this.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Chloe is often calm and patient, compared to Tara's aggressiveness.
  • Redhead In Green: Tara.
  • Shout-Out: Once Chloe and her superhero friends had to deal with a giant gorilla rampaging through a city. Several of the titles are shout-outs as well.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Tara.
  • Third-Person Person: Mac tends to talk like this.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Danni and Tara lean more toward the Tomboy end, whereas Chloe and Lily tend to be more Girly.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Chloe's world is littered with these, though none quite stands up to the full-sized T. rex on in-line skates.
