What's the story?

Noggin's delightful animated series CONNIE THE COW follows the daily adventures of a sweet little cow who lives on a farm with her nurturing parents, Mollie and Bill. Connie is ever so curious about the world around her and spends much of her time exploring nature and talking to the other animals she encounters about her questions and discoveries. Connie's always eager to help others, and she always learns something valuable during each adventure -- either about nature (such as the purpose of an animal's tail) or proper behavior (such as the importance of telling the truth).

Is it any good?

Connie herself is infinitely likable, with her insatiable curiosity and cheerful disposition. She and her friends show a zest for life that's contagious -- they make something as simple as jumping into a cool pond on a hot day seem like a full-body treatment at a luxurious spa. And their way of expressing joy is irresistibly cute -- Patch the puppy, for example, turns upside down and wiggles his toes when he's happy, while Connie jumps straight up in the air as her feet fly in all directions. As she goes through her day, Connie is usually presented with a challenge or dilemma that she must solve -- whether it's learning how to count so she can play hide-and-seek, or helping two butterflies learn how to tell a rainstorm is coming.

If viewers aren't immediately drawn in by Connie and her friends' charming accents, they'll surely be captivated by the cartoon's pastiche of vibrant colors and dazzling, imaginative designs that adorn the animals and insects. There's so much to look at in every scene, whether it's a wonderfully weird, patterned bug crawling up a tree or the gorgeously artistic scenery. The tasks at the end of each segment involve colorful depictions of animals, plants, and insects, which gets kids excited to learn about nature. Overall, the show gets straight A's for visual entertainment and educational value and for inspiring preschoolers to be curious about all the wonderful things that surround them.
