In a world where people spend a lot of time watching TV shows and movies, it’s refreshing to see a show that doesn’t focus on the latest technological advances or complicated plot lines.
Instead focuses on the simple joys of childhood, like the adventures of an adorable little boy who lives in a tree and his best friend, a stuffed animal named Blanket. Or amazing musical shows with lots of colourful puppets voiced by your favourite artists.
