Watch Pinky Dinky Doo
- 2 Seasons
Pinky Dinky Doo is a hand-drawn animated program that aired in various countries during the first few years of the 21st century. The show's main character is Pinky Dinky Doo, voiced by India Ennenga - a seven-year-old with a knack for elaborate storytelling. She lives in Great Big City along with her mother, father, four-year-old brother Tyler, and talking family pet Mr. Guinea Pig. The show normally starts with a problem for Pinky, Tyler, or Mr. Guinea Pig and leads to a storytelling session in the large cardboard box known as the Story Box. After sketching the start of the story on the box's wall its action is displayed for the viewer. In many cases the tale involves Pinky, members of her family, and friends like Nicholas Biscuit, Bobby Boom, and Daphne Toilette. It's up to Pinky to come up with a wacky solution to the dilemma in her story. This is displayed through the inflation of Pinky's head until the proper idea appears. Through each episode of Pinky Dinky Doo there are two interactive segments to get the show's audience involved. One is the introduction of The Great Big Fancy Word. Whenever the word is about to be used Mr. Guinea Pig will blows a trumpet to signify its introduction. This word is used several times per installment. The other interactive element comes at the end of each story when audience members are invited to recall important parts of the story through games on a video game toy resembling a cheese sandwich. These games are guided by Pinky in order to obtain the correct answer. Pinky Dinky Doo was created by Jim Jinkins, who voices Pinky's father, and is a co-production of Sesame Workshop, Noggin (now Nick Jr.), Cbeebies, and Cartoon Pizza. It originally ran from 2005-2008 on the American kids network Noggin, Spanish Univision, the UK's CBeebies, and Canada's Treehouse TV.
