Ozie Boo! is a Chilean All-CGI Cartoon Preschool Show that premiered on September 2, 2006, airing on TiJi, France 5, and Playhouse Disney France. The first season is comprised of 52 2-minute episodes, while the second and third seasons (52 and 26 episodes respectively) aired on Canal J, and was expanded to a length of 7 minutes. In the United States, the series was released on DVDs, three volumes overall.

The series starts the Ozie Boos, five adorable penguins named Fred, Ed, Ned, Ted, and Nelly, that live somewhere in Antarctica. Like most preschool shows, its mostly a Slice of Life, though there are few recurring baddies that appear in certain episodes.

In 2014, a Spin-Off series entitled Ozie Boo! Save the Planet started airing, with 78 4-minute episodes. Currently, the series can be streamed on Prime Video in English. Episodes of the original were uploaded by the official YouTube channel here.

Ozie Boo! contains examples of:

  • Cute Kitten: Rajah, a baby Siberian tiger who's a loyal friend of the Ozieboos.
  • Large Ham: Leo.
  • Leave Me Alone!: This happens with Ed in "The Photos" and "Ed Crusoe".
  • Misplaced Wildlife: We can assume it's Antarctica because of penguins and killer whales, but we also get Beluga and Polar bear cubs (which are in the North Pole), leopards (which these types are founded in Asia), pelicans, starfish and seahorses (which can't survive in cold conditions).
  • Odd Name Out: All of the boys usually have "ed" at the end of their names (Including, of course, Ed), while the one girl is named "Nelly".

  • Replaced the Theme Tune: Since the second season was essentially a retooling of the first, a different Theme Tune was used. In season three, the overall melody is the same but with a different sounding instrumental.
  • Retool: Originally, the first season was just a 2 minute short series (well, if you consider 52 episodes short) with a narrator interacting with the Ozie Boos, all of whom were The Speechless, save for some squeaking. Come season two, and the series gained a different theme song and a new episode length of 7 minutes. All of the Ozie Boos could also now talk. The same format remained for the final season of the series.
  • Theme Twin Naming:
    • The two polar bear cubs are named Mikky and Nikky.
    • The two baby belugas are named Wally and Polly.
  • Title Theme Tune:
    • "Hello, hello, little Ozie Boo / Come play with us and just have fun, too!"
    • "Yoo hoo, yoo hoo, the Ozie Boos, we're here for you!"
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Everyone seems to like cookies.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Whenever Ed's the focus of the episode, he doesn't like it if anyone bothers him.
  • The Voiceless: Orca.
  • You Are Fat: This happened with Ted in "Ted Eats Too Much".
