Pocoyo translates from Spanish as 'little me'. Pocoyo is a curious, fun-loving, friendly little boy who's always into something new. Whether he's on a quest with his friends in outer space or just cleaning up his building blocks, every day is an adventure.
A graceful, playful, pink elephant, Elly is as gentle and loving as she is big. She can be a bit of a know-it-all once in a while; she's a lot like the big sister who claims to have all the answers (even when she doesn't, which makes for humorous results).
Pocoyo's good friend Pato is the kind of duck who likes things 'just so'. He's very cautious - in fact, you might say he was a little too uptight for his own good. But, for all his caution and planning, things never seem to turn our the way he wants them to.
Pocoyo's pet puppy is always ready to play, even when other people aren't. She is Pocoyo's companion, whenever he wants one. She makes Pocoyo giggle. Unlike the other animal characters, Loula is strictly a dog. She adores Pocoyo without question, and the feeling is mutual.
The name says it all. This bird is very, very sleepy. Thought it sometimes appears that gumpy Sleepy Bird only wakes up to turn off her alarm clock, Pocoyo can usually get her up and moving, as well as laughing and playing.
