  • show Description
  • Welcome to the Charlie and Lola guide at TV.com. Charlie and Lola is now airing its third season on Playhouse Disney in the U.S. and on CBeebies in the U.K. Each story begins with Charlie saying, "I have this little sister, Lola. She is small and very funny." This fun series is targeted at preschool audiences about a boy named Charlie and his sister, Lola. Featuring a unique "collage" animation style and catchy background themes, the show follows the pair as Charlie helps out his often rather independent-minded sister, Lola. Lola can be rather firm-minded when it comes to things like not wanting to go to bed, or doing things on her own, but Charlie doesn't mind too much --- he knows how to come up with a creative solution to help Lola see a different point of view. Viewers can accompany the two as they travel to fantastic worlds using their amazing imaginations. The two siblings are joined by their friends Marv Lowe and his dog sizzles, Lola's best friend, Lotta, Marv's younger brother, Morten, and their various school friends and neighbors, including Arnold Wolf, Mini Reader, and Evie. Lola also has her own imaginary friend, Soren Lorensen. Charlie and Lola is based on a series of books by Lauren Child, who works on the show as an associate producer. The series, beginning with I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato is a hit with both parents and children, both for the imaginative stories and the eye-catching cut-out / collage design. As the show continues, so do the books. A number of book releases based on stories from the TV Series are now available and more are coming. You can also find the series on DVD. A total of six have been released, with more scheduled. Charlie and Lola originally premiered as a series of 11 minutes stories aired individually. Beginning with the second season, each episode now features two stories. The third season kicked off with "Everything Is Different and Not the Same" and is now airing, with exciting new stories and new voice actors for both Charlie and Lola. This guide is customized to the airings of Charlie and Lola aired in the United States on Playhouse Disney. Although the show is produced by the BBC and the British company Tiger Aspect, guide airdates reflect the U.S. airings. For those in the U.S., you can now catch the program weekdays at 10 A.M. and on Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 A.M. on Playhouse Disney. If you live in England, you can catch the program on CBeebies or on BBC2 and in Australia, the series airs on ABCKids.moreless

    • When Charlie and Lola are right outside the library, look at the library wall to the right of the door. You can see a poster advertising Clarice Bean, That's Me, which is another book series written by Lauren Child, the creator of Charlie and Lola.

    • When Lola is using the computer, you can see Charlie in the corner of the screen reading a book called That Pesky Rat, which is another book written by the creator of Charlie and Lola, Lauren Child.

    • Lola: So Princess Lola dangled her hair over the top, just like a climbing rope.
      Lola's story is a takeoff on the Grimm Fairy Tale Rapunzel about a beautiful maiden who is locked in a tall tower and lets down her hair for a handsome prince to climb up.

    • The board game that Charlie and Lola played was based on "Chutes and Ladders" but used snakes instead of slides.

    • When Lola is talking to Charlie in their bedroom, the purple book that Charlie is reading is "Clarice Bean, That's Me", which is another book by Lauren Child, the creator of "Charlie and Lola".

    • Viewers were introduced to Lola's interest in insects and other bugs in the very first episode --- But That is My Book.

    • The movie in the story "Lucky, Lucky Me," Batcat, is an obvious reference to the popular character and series of movies, Batman.

    • Charlie: In Space Family Hudson, they have super-duper gadgets to do all their boring jobs for them. Charlie's show that he wants to see, Space Family Hudsons, sounds similar in nature to The Jetsons. The Jetsons was a series spanning the 1960s-1980s, featuring a futuristic family by the same. This family had a robot to assist in their housework and the adults drove around in flying cars.
