My two boys were big fans of The Koala Brothers when they were younger and used to regularly watch CBeebies, even I was quite partial to an episode or two snuggled up with them. Remarkably it has been on our screens for 10 years now and shows no signs of stopping, it’s as popular as ever for our inquisitive pre-schoolers and has been translated into 31 languages so children all around the world can enjoy it. Another sure sign of success is the fact that The Koala Brothers has been nominated for four children’s BAFTA awards.
It’s an entertaining animation following the adventures of Frank and Buster, two very lucky koalas living in the Australian outback. I can hear the cold wind whistling through my front door at this very moment I am writing this so the thought of some sun right now would be lovely! But these koala’s do not have time to laze around they are usually far too busy trying to help others. They have an important role in the rural community, flying out on a daily patrol in their charming yellow aeroplane, honing in on anyone in need of help and rushing to their assistance. The series is great for young children as it teaches them the value of friendship and being a good citizen.
The Koala Brothers facebook page has been re-launched; you can see lots of lovely pictures of The Koala brothers and all their friends and keep up to date with the latest news and episode schedules. There is also a YouTube channel if you fancy listening to the catchy theme tune or watching an episode together. My eldest who is seven just enjoyed listening to it again and it reminded him of how much he used to like the show.
