Trust Me, I'm a Genie is a French cartoon from 2011. It follows the adventures of Diego, a camel, who is the master of Ziggy, a raccoon genie, and all their desert friends. Ziggy granted Diego's first wish, a cafe, and his second wish was a swimming pool for all his friends to enjoy. But then, Ziggy got sand in his magic can, so in turn, his third wish became defective.

A character sheet can be found here.


Tropes you'll find the the series:

  • Freeing the Genie: Ziggy's main goal is pretty much wanting Diego to set him free. Too bad the final wish always messes up.
  • Security Cling: Diego and Joe do this to each other in The Eradicator when the titular creature is brought to life.
  • True Companions: The final episode drives this point straight home. Diego, Ziggy, Zazie, Joe, Tony, Larry and Sonia are so close as friends, they could be considered a family.
  • World of Snark: Pretty much everyone who isn't Larry or Scoop has snarked at some point in the show. Ziggy, Joe and Sonia are by far the most prominent snarkers, though.


How well does it match the trope?
