The three main characters from Chirp



Watch our CBC Parents exclusive interview with show creator JJ Johnson!


Based on the best-selling and well-loved children's magazine Chirp, this series celebrates play, imagination and the power of invention. Chirp, Tweet and Squawk are three best friends who use their imaginations and everyday objects to get them into—and out of—fantastically fun adventures and hilariously sticky predicaments. In each 11-minute episode, Chirp, Tweet and Squawk imagine themselves on grand quests through jungles or on pirate adventures... but often their imaginations can get them into trouble.

That's where the Mail Squirrel comes in handy. Every day, at just the right time, the Mail Squirrel drops off a package for Chirp. Seemingly innocuous items like a hand-held fan, elastic band or paper clip become a play-saver when Chirp and his friends engineer them into something more helpful.

By using characters kids relate to and laugh with, coupled with situations they're engaged and entertained by, Chirp opens up the world to preschoolers, one awesome adventure at a time.

Episode length: 11 minutes (approx.)
