What's the story?

THE MONCHHICHI TRIBE is a spin-off of of the French reboot of the 1983 American series titled The Monchhichis. It features Willow, Hanae, and Kauri, aka the Shock Trio, who live among the other Monchhichi in the mountains near the majestic Dream Tree. The happy monkey-like creatures spend their time playing, visiting gardener Pollinia, and unintentionally creating a little chaos. But with the help of their magical leader, Wizzar, they always find ways to rectify their mistakes. 

Is it any good?

This colorful series offers lots of entertaining adventures that highlight the importance of creativity, problem solving, and teamwork. Each episode is only 11 minutes in length, but still offers a well-developed story that introduces a problem that needs to be solved. The cute characters, which are based on a popular ensemble of Japanese plush toys, are also appealing. Overall, The Monchhichi Tribe offers lots of fun, while teaching a few quick lessons along the way.
