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

Educational Value

This show models the use of creative problem-solving as Boj finds solutions to the community’s problems in the most unexpected ways.

Positive Messages

Viewers will see the characters play and have fun together, and ultimately Boj will do something to help a member of his community. There are no major disagreements, and, in the end, everyone is happy and working together.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The characters all have positive dispositions, but Boj stands out for his calm, clearheaded thinking. While their problems are nothing major (selling things to buy a fountain or drying wet laundry quickly), Boj always comes through in the end to help others, not just himself.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this preschool show is about Boj, a young bilby (a mouse-like marsupial, also known as a rabbit-bandicoot, for those who don't know) who's friends with all types of animals in his community. Boj is a typical kid who likes to be with his parents and play with his friends, but in a crisis he always comes to the rescue by coming up with a fantastic and creative idea that saves the day.

Definitley something that kids should watch. It's about frendship and fun. It also promotes creativity and individuality.

What's the story?

BOJ AND BUDDIES is a show about a group of diverse animal friends who live, work, and play together. Whether it's making a smoothie or having fun at summer camp, Boj's friends help one another with whatever life brings them, and Boj often comes through as the hero when he creatively solves the group’s problems and predicaments.

Is it any good?

This sweet, simple series shows little ones how to creatively solve problems. Boj's world is very cute, with basic 2D (cutout-style) animation, and he's a great role model for young kids who are just learning to think critically. He's resourceful and triumphant, and without going into too much detail on how he comes up with his ideas, he shows the audience how to make something out of virtually nothing.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about creative problem-solving. How do people put their minds together to find solutions? Have you ever come up with a great idea?

  • Kids: Who's your favorite character? Why? How do the animals get along with each other on this series?
