Maisy is a brightly-colored show about a female mouse. The character and her pre-school aged adventures are based on the books by the British author, Lucy Cousins. Maisy has a new, simplistic adventure with her friends each episode and in the process, learns to better grasp and deal with the world around her.
Each episode of Maisy features four stories which finds the main character Maisy exploring everything from taking a bath to going on a deep-sea dive. Maisy is often joined by her four friends, Tallulah (a chick), Eddy (an elephant), Charley (an alligator) and Cyril (a squirrel.) Her adventures are narrated by a male narrator and while Maisy and her friends do not speak in sentences, they do make babbling noises and say occasional words, provided by The Umbilical Brothers.
In the United States, Maisy is seen twice daily on Noggin, which states the series "enhances preschoolers' problem solving, interpersonal and early literacy skills."
