Four and a half Friends

Target: 6 to 10, boys&girls
Charly and his friends love solving mysteries while facing the challenges of growing up. This unlikely group of junior detectives - and their small, mangy street dog - will stop at nothing to find and solve cases they uncover in and around their home town. And between the excitement, action and laughs, they’ll find out a bit about themselves and each other along the way.
This show puts a modern, fast-moving spin on the traditional detective genre. Told through the eyes of one of the characters – including Dandy – these stories are funny and touching. This ‘kid’s-eye view’ means viewers will be able to identify with the character’s thoughts and feelings, his insecurities and worries. And to share their sense of humour too, so we will enjoy their adventures even more.
They don’t have superpowers, they aren’t geniuses and they don’t even look like TV stars, but these normal, unexceptional kids and their funny-looking dog achieve amazing things when they get together as the Charly & Co Detective Agency.
The TV series is based on the internationally successful series of books written by Joachim Friedrich. The books have been translated into more than 20 languages, and millions of copies have been sold in countries such as Germany, Spain, Eastern Europe, China, Japan and the US.

Length: 52 eps x 2.5 min
Takat is a street dog living in the big city. Takat doesn't have a pedigree, but he has plenty of class: he's a little guy with a big character. He's a scamp, a rascal who's always on the look-out for the main chance - but he has a big heart and a noble spirit.
Takat shows us the day-to-day life of an independent-minded pooch, who doesn't want to take orders, or be anyone's pet. He knows exactly how to get what he wants: a bite to eat, freedom to live the present, without worrying about the future.
With a mainstream rock soundtrack and the image of such a beautiful city as Barcelona in the background, Takat's adventures will take all family to laugh by looking at this small guy trying to survive in his own, not always luckily.

‘Edebits’ is a 'green' series with ecological values and set in a scientific base in Antarctica where 10-years old Bet lives with her parents.

Thanks to the incredible adventures of Bet and the edebits, the audience is going to explore the frozen continent and learn to respect the environment, covering highly topical subjects such as climate change, oil pollution, hunting seals, etc.
