Go To

Simsala Grimm is a 1999 German cartoon, following the adventures of two creatures: Yoyo and Doc Croc, who transport themselves to fairy tales on a magic book, speak with fairy tale characters, and give them advice.

This cartoon provides examples of:

  • Adorkable: Both Yoyo and Doc Croc qualify in their own ways: Yoyo because of his cheerful and childlike attitude and Doc Croc because of his stutter and social awkwardness
  • Artifact Title: The third season let go of doing only Grimm fairy tales.
  • Badass Adorable: Yoyo is more than happy to stare down wild pigs and wolves. He can also be a case of Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass.
  • Break the Cutie: Yoyo when he breaks down in tears in the "Singing Soaring Lark" episode.
  • Cartoon Creature: It's unclear just what kind of animal Yoyo is. He looks like a tailless fox mixed with a weasel. In the first two seasons, he doesn't have ears, yet he has weasel-like ears in the third season.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Yoyo. Doc Croc has his moments, but Yoyo is probably the most prominent snarker in the show.
  • Happy Harlequin Hat: Yoyo, though his hat is pure red and combined with a poncho-like garment.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yoyo. As cocky and sarcastic and as hot-blooded as he is, he's a very caring and kind-hearted character.
  • Nice Hat: Both Yoyo and Doc Croc are known for their hats.
