Show Summary

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

  • A complete boredom and waste of your time.

    1.0
    Why this show was made is beyond me. This show is about two siblings named Charlie and Lola, and that's all there is to the concept, and when a show hss no plot to it then you pretty much tell it will be a complete waste of time. Everything about C&L is utterly bland and uninteresting from the beginning to the end. The characters are completely boring and uninteresting at best. Charlie is boring and lifeless and has no personality whatsoever and I must say for an older brother he doesn't know how to take care of his younger sister. Lola is very annoying and whiny, she always whines and cries over the most minor things and invades Charlie's privacy all the time. But of all questions that could be asked, it would be where the heck their parents are? Seriously, they never appear in this series or are never even referred to. There is very little to no background music at all in this show aside from the opening theme, and when a kids cartoon lacks background music (unless it's not relevant to the situation) then you know you're in for a bad show. The animation is awful, the characters move very pukish and stiffly and it's so effortless, the lip syncs aren't on for the most part, and the editing is dreadful. The artwork is bland and uninspired at the very best, the characters look bland and uninteresting to look at, the lines are sloppy, and everything looks so incomplete and poorly thought out. The plots are repeated in every episode, it's usually Charlie introducing himself to the audience and talking about his sister, Lola doing something and messing up, Lola crying about it, Charlie punishing Lola in the least strict way imaginable, and I'm pretty sure there's more to the episode storylines but I can't remember since I haven't seen this show in years. There is also no education value AT ALL in this show, and when a show is intended to be educational but fails to bring any educational value to the table, then there's something terribly wrong with your show. Throughout all the times I have seen this show, I failed to find any educational values in this show whatsoever. Charlie and Lola was doomed to fail the moment it aired on TV, with annoying and bland characters, really bad artwork and animation, no plot, a completely uninteresting idea, and no educational value makes Charlie and Lola a waste of time. Never see this show at all unless you want to be bored out of your wits.moreless

    Why does everyone like Charlie and Lola it is boring and yet it's a program for preschoolers but i can't seem to know why they'd enjoy that piece of rubbish and they are yet british like me but i don't talk like many british people i talk a bit american as well oh god this show is dead boring the voices are boring and many more this show aired in CBeebies in the UK over here and Playhouse Disney in the USA i can't believe Americans would even try to put this piece of rubbish on Playhouse Disney it is boring and not too bright but they dubbed it so the american version might actually be good but they kept the stupid boring voices if you want to see a good show for kids either watch SpongeBob or Rocko's Modern Life this is'nt really a good show this show is evil and must be cancelled and whoever created this probably loves like being bored or something this is more boring than the soap operas like Coranation Street and Eastenders.moreless
  • Lola is very annoying.

    4.0
    Yes. It's true.



    Plot: Charlie and Lola, always goes on to adventures to whine about and anything, they go there to and Lola is always there to WHINE at them.



    Characters: Charlie is good, but Lola must go if she doesn't stop that whining around. Voice acting is okay, nice accents.



    Value: The accents and common sense in here are essential, but Lola is ruining this show, influencing kids to give out nonsense whines.



    Art: Could use a little improvement on their appearance, but animation is fine.



    Overall: 4. Lola needs to control herself. Whining almost everytime, that is a problem.moreless

  • Crap!

    1.0
    I think little kids can be a pain in the a** but they deserve better tv shows than this pice of crap. I mean you can replace this with a better show. The person who thought of this was either mentally challended,just stupid or drunk. This dosen\'t teach kids anything in the real world. The animation is awful. I can draw better than that. The only reason I give it a 1 is beacuase I feel sorry for it.moreless
