The first installment of this series features "Pororo, The Little Penguin". Pororo is a hip, little penguin wearing an aviator hat and aviator goggles. Filled with curiosity, Pororo lives in a snow-covered, pearl-white forest with his friends: Crong, the cute baby dinosaur who often causes trouble; Eddy, the smart, little fox who wants to become a great scientist and loves inventing gadgets; Rody, the strong robot made by Eddy; Poby, the polar bear with a heart as big as his mass; TongTong, the little dragon who is a magician and turns, with a magic wand, himself larger when flying in the sky; Loopy, the shy feminine beaver who loves to cook; Petty, the bright penguin girl who is athletic; Pipi and Popo, alien friends filled with curiosity; and Harry, the cheerful hummingbird who loves to sing. Amid the rackets, big and small, that arise every day, these little friends solve problems without any help from grown-ups, help and love each other, all while learning the wisdoms of life.
