The Koala Brothers Turn 10!



If you don't already know, ‘The Koala Brothers’ is an animation series for pre-schoolers which is broadcast by CBeebies within the UK. Your little ones can follow the adventures of Frank and Buster, two cute and friendly koalas living in the Australian outback, whose mission in life is to help others. From their isolated homestead, they fly out on daily patrol in their yellow aeroplane, looking for anyone in need of help. The series shows the true value of friendship and caring for others and has sold to 150 territories worldwide, been translated into 31 languages and it has even been nominated for four children’s BAFTA awards.

That's rather impressive!



I remember sitting with Jamster watching this, what feels like only yesterday, and I always thought it was a great programme for teaching the importance of kindness; so I'm really not surprised that it has become such a success. Helping others in times of need is a valuable lesson for children to learn and as parents I'm sure you will agree.

They have now released their own YouTube channel and Facebook page and episodes will soon be available to download from iTunes. The Koala Brothers can travel with you and your child wherever you may be.

It's a firm favourite for many toddlers and with this being their 10th year on TV we have a giveaway to celebrate!

  7. The Koala Brothers! We only discovered it last year on CBeebies for the first time! My brother Peter absolutely *adores* the show & his nickname is "Frank" and he calls me "Mitzi" because I like carousels and pretty things! This Koala Brothers Birthday competition finishes just a few days before my brother Peter's birthday too :D

  38. As soon as we got a TV , I used to love watching the American children's programme Gigantor. His good deeds - and the theme tune - stay with me to this day.

    Today's children are spoilt for choice - so many wonderful shows. Current faves in our house are Horrid Henry and Thomas.
