The fun characters, sparkling wit and humour, vibrant design and utterly brilliant animation are a breath of fresh air amid the formulaic blandness of modern kids' TV.
Buy a copy for yourself, another for your kids, another for any other kids you know and one more to keep wrapped up for when it becomes a collector's item. If this doesn't become a cult classic there's no justice.
The Monkey, Bird and Armadillo will take you on a rollercoaster of laughs and amazement as its very funny humour and its stunning visuals will entertain you time and again.
The fact that these animals do not speak in any language, but use their own invented words and each others names to communicate makes it perfect for any child and any adult of any nationality and any age. It's classic entertaiment with content suitable for any age group. Its humour is both adult and child friendly and you will find yourself laughing along with your todler, teen or student child!
Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto! proves that modern animation can not just keep us glued to the screen, it keeps us in touch with our inner child and puts a big smile on our face.
The african 'thick black outlined' style animation and just how much raw emotion is shared far surpasses anything I have ever seen, for instance when a mad chase goes on between the trio (a cute little bird called 'Yoko', a wise and friendly armadillo called 'Jakamoko' and a miscevious chimp called 'Toto') as they squabble over who gets a seashell they find, until eventually they find that the shell has it's own occupant! Its so funny that one episode can revolve around one seashell, but each and every episode is just as great! I can't really express it in words. Just Watch it! Although I think it's supposed to be for children. Anyone WILL love it. Absolutely flawless.
Best of all, the humour isn't just for kids. The motherly bird (Yoko), droll armadillo (Jakamoko) and wacky, loose-cannon monkey (Toto) compliment each other fantastically. Without the use of dialogue the three communicate clearly with noises, gestures and music, making for some terrific visual comedy.
Whether it’s working together to find a funny and innovative solution to a problem (as in “The Waterhole”) or teaching a non-preachy lesson about the value of friendship (“The New King ”), the trio’s adventures are enjoyable from start to finish.
Especially fun for adults are sly references to pop culture, as in “The Shell”, with its hilarious homage to the famous eye-narrowing showdown in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
I highly recommend it!
