I've been watching a children's program from Canada called The Doodlebops - it's the most adorable thing I've seen on TV in my life.

The show features Deedee, Rooney, and Moe Doodle (Lisa J. Lennox, Chad McNamara, and Jonathan Wexler) - three very colorful musicians (pink, blue, and orange, respectively) who play keyboard, guitar, and drums in a rock band for kids. The show is funny, zany, sweet, energetic, and filled with delightful little details, and the actors are wonderfully talented at their craft. There are bright colors, catchy music, cute puppets, helpful friends, entertaining theater performances, and everyone and everything is just generally adorable. And everybody laughs and smiles so much! The whole thing's just a joy to watch. It's nice, too, that it teaches kids little social lessons along the way (like 'share', 'don't give up', 'be considerate of your friends', that sort of thing), along with encouraging them to dance along during the performances. There are also several cute scenes that recur in each show but with clever little variations, like 'Don't pull the rope!' and 'Where's Moe?'

According to wiki, today is the birthday of one of the actors, so I'm wishing a very Happy Birthday to Jonathan Wexler!
