Zoe and Charlie (original French title: Léa et Gaspard) is a French-Canadian animated series, consisting of 26 episodes that are each 5 minutes long. It originally aired on channel Canal + in France in 1993.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The protagonists are Zoe, a thin sporty girl who is a health nut, and Charlie, a younger boy who is pudgy and enjoys fatty foods. Each episode was a parody of a fairy tale or famous mythical story that would center around eating well.

Recurring characters apart from the leading duo were several talking animals, including chickens, a horse, a cat and wolves (who would often be the villains).

Availability[edit | edit source]

The episodes never came out on VHS or DVD, but currently this show aired in Canada on Unis TV.

It was dubbed in English and at least shown on TVOntario (a Canadian channel) on the kid's block TVOKids: The Crawlspace.
