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.
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.
Love this and I watched this since I started school (5) and I loved it ever since.Please please please please please please please please with 3 scoops of raspberry riple ice-cream and 2 calories of wipped cream and a cherry with sprinkles on top bring this show back oh please god i'm begging you or else just cancel Mickey Mouse clubhouse.
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.
I am 19 and this show is my guilty pleasure. This is such a cute cartoon! Lola is really sweet, really cute, and Charlie is very helpful and doesnt seem to get very annoyed by Lola's antics. The animation is very different from what I used to, but I think its cool how they use real objects. I think this show should be a full 30 minutes long. And the theme song is very catchy too. Anyways, I love this show. I love how Charlie helps Lola to do the right things, such as, going to bed on time or learning to accept her part in the school play. And their friends, Marv and Lotta are cool too. I rate this show a 10/10.
I have found this show to be an invaluable tool for discussing behavour with my four year old grandaughter. I have found she can totally relate to Lola. My grandaughter does not relate to her brother as well as Lola does with Charlie however it does encourage her to endeavour to do better. I so remember the hunt for a birthday present and the agony of having to give it up for the best friend's birthday. I also have trouble getting the grandaughter to eat proper meals. To redefine what the food is can often activate her imagination as Charlie did. We also enjoy the Charlie and Lola web site.
I find the british voices to enchanting and fascinating to listen to. Lola is especial lovely. It very much reminds me of my relationship with my little sister. When magic was real and everything was new and amazing to her. When she hung on my every word and to her I was the most intelligent,exciting person in the world.
The show is intended for a much younger set. preschoolers and preteens. However I thing any parent will find this show a joy to watch with their child. The animation has the childlike look to it. An Lola's flights of fancy are fun and very sweet. Her imagination and delight in her everyday goings-on are adorable.
Okay the show may not be for everybody. But if you every had a younger sibling that you were responsible for when you were younger. This show will bring about a flood of memories. And I think any preschooler will find the show entertaining.
"Charlie & Lola" has an engaging "collage" style of animation; a wonderfully adept voice cast; writing that works on more than just a child's level; and a total ambience that draws me back again and again to watch the same episodes. It is a wonderful show and I highly recommend it, to both adults and children.
I absolutely adore this show. I love watching it with my 2 year old. It shows you just how your kids imagination works. It is amazing how parents can use Charlie's tactics to improve their parenting skills. You, the parent,can actually learn something while watching this show that will benefit your child. It is cute, funny and very insightful.
"Charlie and Lola" is a great show for anyone. The animation is not like any other show and they did a great job on the voice work. This show has a great amount of creativity, too. My friends and I all watch (and enjoy) "Charlie and Lola." Outstanding job, everyone!
It's like a mix of Madeline and Rolie POlie Olie, added in with a pinch of accents. Even though it's a kiddie show, I actually try to watch it whenever it's on and I don't have school. It reminds me of some of the older children's shows which were charming and informative at the same time without getting too cheesy when it comes to morals. I also like how the drawing style is like something you would find in a children's book in the library; it not only makes you think, but it looks cool to begin with.
Its original content and great illustrations make for one great cartoon. It is hard to find a cartoon that I approve of, maybe my standards are too high. I try to expose my child to as little televsion as possible so when he does get to watch I want the program to be of exceptional quality. I stumbled across Charlie and Lola by accident and was very impressed and admit I enjoy just as much as my son. My 2 year old was immediately hooked. I tivo Charlie and Lola so he can watch it when ever he wants. Compared to the rest of the cartoons out there this one stands out above them all.
This is one of those pre-schooler shows which you will sit down with your child and watch and at first think is kind of stupid while your child is sitting there with a smile on her/his face.
' Charlie and Lola ' is an import from the United Kingdom and is one of the better shows I have found on ' Playhouse Disney' lately. It is imformative, educational, and at times can leave you with a warm feeling in your heart.
If you have not sat down and watched this show yet with your child, it may be a good time to do so but as I say you may need to give it a couple of episodes.
OMG! My husband and I both adorrrrrrrrrrrrre this show! It's too cute and clever! The characters, their accents, the collage background--we can't get enough! LOVE the show and tune in every a.m. since we discovered it a few weeks ago! The expressions that Lola uses stay on our minds all day. We repeat what she says daily. It's too much fun!
Two british kids discover everything to what a leaf does to a picnic. They are so cute because Charlie, being an older brother, tries to help Lola through life and it ends up being really cool. I know you say, "You watch Charlie and Lola? That's a kids show!" I say so what. Even though I'm not 4 and do not have any kids (still waiting for first girlfriend) I find it interesting to watch a six year old and three year old siblings share more than just the same parents.
This show is soo funny!, its mostly the way they move and talk, plus Lola is very picky which is kinda annoying, but I love the episode about Lola not eating any healthy foods, it makes me hungry to watch all those foods and she doesnt even want to try them. Still I dont know why I watch this, it means NOTHING to me cuz I dont need to learn all those manners and stuff, but I cant stop watching it.
We spent the summer away in a cottage that did not have satelite or cable so I missed Charlie and Lola's introduction to Playhouse Disney. I heard the cute little British accents and decided to see what show they were coming from. I was surprised to see this Brit version of my 6 year old son and 3 year old daughter. Charlie's wise attempts to try to get his sister to cooperate with him are amusing. It's great to see someone recognize how an older boy, not quite a young man, thinks. He gets the tricks but not quite the nuances of them- he needs to play the opposite game but he doesn't appreciate the need for the game itself. Lola, his mischevious, wants everything her way sister, comes up with some lines that will make you giggle at her innocence.
Even when my daughter goes to school, I will be channel surfing to Playhouse Disney for this gem!
