This live-action British series creatively explores the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren. Grandpa Mason is able to share his exploits with his grandchildren, who are more than willing to assist him during his exploits. His willingness to wreak a little havoc on occasion also creates some fun moments.

The stories are lighthearted, and the overall series, albeit full of British humor, will appeal to a universal preschool audience. But Grandpa In My Pocket is also a celebration of the important role grandparents (or other family elders) can play in children's lives that can be understood across countries and cultures.
