The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Yo Yo is a playful animated cartoon about a set of fraternal twins named (surprise, surprise!) Yo and Yo. The stories are short and sweet, and aimed at kids from 3 to 7 years old. Since the twins have very different personalities, learning to cooperate with others is an ongoing focus of the series.

What's the story?
YO YO is an animated series that follows a pair of imaginative twins who may look similar, but who couldn't be more different. Yo (the brother) is timid and thoughtful, while his twin sister, Yo, is more outgoing and spontaneous. They don't always agree on the best way to handle the various wacky situations they get into -- such as helping an outcast toad covered in pink polka dots learn to get along with his smaller, unspotted brethren -- but when they learn to listen to each other, connect, and cooperate, things usually have a way of working themselves out.
Is it any good?
With a lively animation style filled with pops of wild color, and an impish set of kids to follow on all sorts of comical adventures, this series does a great job of presenting situations preschoolers can relate to in a magical setting that will draw them in. Yo Yo may not be groundbreaking entertainment, but the artwork is easy on the eyes and the characters are charming enough, making this a pretty universally appealing choice for younger kiddos.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the ways family members -- and people in general -- can all be so different from one another. What would life be like if we were all the same? How do you think Yo and Yo's differences might actually make them stronger?
