Norton and Tupu.

Tupu (a.k.a. Toupou, 2004-2005) is a French/Canadian animated series by Xilam about a girl who lives in Central Park. She is friends with the Mayor's son, Norton Gordon, and has a pet squirrel, Whatsup. She is constantly chased by the park caretaker, Shoobz, who lives with his mom.

Tupu provides examples of the following tropes:

  • All Crimes Are Equal: Shoobz seems to treat any infraction in his park as a severe offense, and has no problems yelling at children when they commit it.
  • Cone of Shame: Dandruff the bulldog wears one permanently.
  • Earthy Barefoot Character: Due to the fact of her being a Squirrel Girl, Tupu virtually never wears shoes, except when it's really cold outside.
  • Feral Child: Tupu. Although, she's a lot more civil than other examples.
  • My Beloved Smother: Shoobz still lives with his mom, and she has him wrapped around her thumb.
