Madeline

Show Summary

In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines... the smallest one was Madeline. First aired in the early 90's, Madeline is a 30-minute animated feature based on the books by Ludwig Bemelmans. The show basically features the adventures of Madeline, her friends, Miss Clavel and Pepito. Each episode spots them going on adventure, and an original song. The original "Madeline" was a production from 1952 that was shown as an animated opener in movie theaters. The next 6 were television specials that were the work of Cinar animation. "Madeline" was picked up as a regular series in 1993 on The Family Channel. Production of episodes was moved to DiC studios. The series ran for 2 seasons during that time. In 2000, the show came back, now running as "The New Adventures Of Madeline". Many of the episodes are available on video and DVDs, and music from selected episodes of the show is available on the CDs "Madeline's Favorite Songs", "Hats off to Madeline" and "Sing-A-Long With Madeline". ©1988 DIC Entertainment, L.P.; © 1989 Cinar VIII And Company, L.P. © 1993, 1995 DIC Entertainment, L.P.

  • Cheeky show

    9.5
    I watched this show for the first time when I was 13 through the Jaroo website and I fell in love with it. The story is about the adventure a cheeky, mischievous, and spunky yet sweet and heartwarming girl with a red hair named Madeline. Madeline lives in an old house in Paris with her 11 friends and Ms. Clavel, everyday she with her 11 friends and Ms. Clavel spend time together on going for adventure to many other places.



    The storyline is maybe kind of childish, but I actually like it because the story can give me a good message on my daily life and quite well written. There are maybe some aspects of the story that I find to be rather weird or uncanny, but I am fine with that. I also really like the idea on how Madeline always goes to many other places while she learned a lot things from her adventure.



    Madeline herself is a really likeable heroine, I really like her character since I watched it for the first time and still like it until now. She has many things that I like about her character such as strong, witty, clever, resourceful, and spunky instead of being weak, helpless, useless, or bratty.

    But just because she is spunky, witty, clever, and that doesn't mean that she is perfect because she has her few of her flaws such as being devious, rebellious, careless, and she also gets angry quite easily at times (especially when someone has offended her).



    I also really like her friends, Chloe and Nicole are my most favorite friends of Madeline because Madeline seem to have a bit closer relationship with Nicole and Chloe. Yvette is my least favorite among Madeline's friend, because she can be somewhat snobby or irritating on quite a few episodes. Ms. Clavel is really nice teacher I must say, she always being so caring to the kids and always teaches them an important lesson. Pepito grews me a lot, at first I didn't like him at because on how the way he treats Madeline and her friends but I grew to like him when he spends more time with Madeline and her friends. The main focus maybe about Madeline with her friends and Ms. Clavel but the series also introduced many other new characters on each episodes.



    The songs are mostly catchy and quite remarkable, I can remember quite many of the songs from the series. My most favorite one is "Hats off to Madeline" because it makes me always remember the show.



    The animation of the earlier series of the Madeline maybe looked old with less bright colors, but the later series looks better with brighter colors, newer, and more fluid looking.

    I really really love Madeline and her school friends. The girls are so cute;-) Miss Clavel is Madeline's teacher and usually tries to get the girls out of trouble. Pepito is a friend which was naughty but got taught on how to be a good friend. Madeline makes it fun for kids to learn lessons like about Good Manners and that company is what counts most. I also love how there is only one song per episode so it focuses young ones on the story of the show more. Madeline is a classic that i will always love.moreless
  • One of the best Y rated shows I ever watched while growing up.

    One time when I was little, I started watching Disney every morning and this was one of the first shows I ever saw on it and it became my favorite show until I got older and started watching Cartoon Network again and the Powerpuff Girls became my new favorite (but I still really liked this show). Each episode has a very enjoyable and exciting plot that kids will really enjoy. The season 3 episodes have more moralty to them and I think it's very good that they added some moralty since it helps kids learn stuff. The books are very good too and they where the very first books I ever read to myself as a little kid since I loved the show alot. To this day, this show is still my favorite show meant for little kids and I kind of wish that it would have had 3 more seasons or more since 6 or more is how many seasons I think each good show should have. I defenitly recommand this show for any little kid. I'm glad that DIC decided to adapt the books as an animation and create more stories. They did a perfect job and I think this is one of DIC's best shows ever.moreless
