I have NO IDEA what this show is about, but my kids love it. Honestly? The randomness of the adventures of Toopy the Rat and his cat, Binoo, border on the same ridiculousness of In The Night Garden.

BUT – the kids love it. The show is always a random collection of events that inspires my kids’ imagination and has them acting out bizarre stories along with the characters on the screen.

I’m not a fan of people bringing kids to concerts, but I do love taking my boys to fun theatre events. They’ve seen Busytown, Yo Gabba Gabba and The Backyardigans in live theatre settings. Each time they come filled with stories of their big night out and enthusiasm for live music and dancing.

Taking your kids to these shows is a great way to build appreciation of live theatre with your children. Patti Caplette, the choreographer and creator of Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon, says “If they see characters on stage when they’re 4, it’s probably not such a big leap to take them to see the ballet perform Alice In Wonderland. I have to think we’re definitely perpetuating the love of theatre.”

Toopy and Binoo and The Marshmallow Moon will be in Calgary on September 22 for 3 shows at The Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.

There are a few tickets left for the 1p and 4p performances, a better selection for the 7p evening show. I’ve got a family 4 pack of tickets to that evening show for you and the kidlets to take in.

Simply leave a comment with an explanation of what *you* think Toopy and Binoo is all about and you’re entered to win!

The prize is 4 tickets to the 7p show of Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon on September 22. The winner will also receive a Toopy and Binoo DVD and game.

**UPDATE** Thanks to everyone who entered. Neena was selected the winner.

    Toopy and Binoo are about the power of imagination and creativity–an essential part of childhood!

    I think Toopy and Binoo is about a cat and a mouse who have made my child have the craziest biggest imagination. He now constantly sees dragons, wolves and foxes in our house and runs away from them mid play screaming. I have never watched a full episode (he watches it at dayhome) but he asks me for it at least 3 times every day! I honestly don’t get it. Maybe if we won the tickets I would be able to see why it I such a huge hit with the kids!

    This show is so annoying but my 3 year old loves it. Just a show about how Toopy’s imagination runs wild.

    Toopy and Binoo is all about your child exploring the wonders of his/her imagination, being optimistic, and about true friendships!

    Toopy and Binoo is about finding fun and adventure anywhere, anytime and with anyone. It’s about true friendship, no matter how diverse and diffrent. It teaches kids to enjoy everything around them and follow their dreams!

    For us, Toopy and Binoo is about laughter. Never have we heard our 4 year old laugh so loud, and so long over snow falling from the sky and then turning to ice cream. Oh the silliness! But we love it!

    Imagination. Playing out the dreams of a 2 year old through the mind of a cat and mouse.

    This must be the trippiest show on tv! I am always laughing at how strange it seems, but my 2 year old thinks this show is the best thing ever. Great contest!

    That’s a tough question! I think Toopy and Binoo is about the power of imagination. They rarely play with toys that stay toys – they always turn into something else. All of my girls loved Toopy and Binoo as their first real tv show.

    I believe, to me, that “Toopy & Binoo” are really 2 guys in college on the greatest acid trip ever! That being said, Toopy and Binoo is all about letting your mind go, venturing out and bringing a friend along for the journey!

    My daughter drops her toys (from the other room) and starts dancing the minute she hears the theme song! She absolutley LOVES this show!
    Its a brilliantly weird & funny show for kids!
