A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

While the episodes might touch on things like dinosaur bones, this series does not seem to have a specific curriculum that it follows and supports through episodes.

Positive Messages

The characters get into difficult situations which usually require teamwork to resolve them. Bullies are outwitted, problems are solved with some creativity, and the gang always ends out on top, despite how impossible it seems.  

Positive Role Models & Representations

The characters on the show are good natured and very personable. The main character, Teo, is the one in charge. He is a short red-headed character with glasses who seems to figure things out, despite the difficulties of being turned into various creatures. The additional characters, Peter and Flo, support Teo in his quests and help him deal with his animal changes. This diverse cast of characters show amazing teamwork and have a lot of fun along the way.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Atchoo is a comedy designed for pre-tweens. It's about a kid named Teo who turns into an animal every time he sneezes.Told in 11-minute episodes, it deals with older scenarios than preschool shows and characters will occasionally encounter a group of tough male characters who are up to no good, and Teo seemingly has a crush on a cute blond-haired girl who is stereotypically self-centered. Teo, however, has a diverse group of friends who help each other out of bizarre and hilarious situations.

What's the story?

Teo is a cheerful and smart 9-year-old boy with a very special characteristic in ATCHOO. When he is faced with an emotional situation, he sneezes. This wouldn’t normally be a big deal, but when Teo sneezes he turns into an animal! It is never the same animal, so he might  be a bear one minute, and a parrot the next. While Teo remains himself within the animal, he does take on some animalistic traits. So if is a skunk, he would smell, and if he is a chicken he would cluck while he speaks. But, with the help of his friends, he manages to get out of trouble and always turns back into plain old Teo in the end.

Is it any good?

The animated show is both entertaining and visually appealing, with Teo and his friends being relatable and interesting. Each episode features some wackiness with Teo turning into different animals, which can be a lot of fun to watch. The teamwork between the 3 main characters always solves the day, despite seemingly impossible with Teo’s constant metamorphically bizarre changes. Atchoo works well as a bridging show for kids who are too old for preschool shows, yet not yet ready for the tween stuff. It's light and funny, yet written with a realness towards early elementary school issues.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the different animals that Teo turn into and how that might affect his ability to solve the many problems he gets into. How would being a different animal help or hinder the situation at hand in Atchoo?

  • Kids: Would you ever want to turn into a different animal? When would you want to a be a different animal? What animal would you want to turn into and why? What animal would you not want to turn into and why?
