A short but wonderful programme for the little ones. Made using various techniques, these films feature, in order of appearance: affectionate teddy bears, a tyrannosaurus who’s not very good at basketball, two worm friends, a careful bird, a little witch and an alien who is preparing a delicious pink soup with a secret ingredient...

In these eight stories, our plasticine mushroom from Spain meets people, makes blunders and invents a thousand and one things. He builds a crazy roundabout, goes off exploring and disguises himself as a mouse to attend a party at which mushrooms are not welcome. Although almost twenty years have passed, Capelito is still as fresh and lively as ever.

The Fishing Lesson • The Fly • The Ball of Wool • The Roundabout • The Explorer • The Dog’s Hat • The Mouse Party • The Mother
