On first look I wasn’t impressed with the character designs on Pocoyo, but after checking out their website I have to say that it was very well done and entertaining (and thus very visit worthy for any animation fanboy). It’s also very cool that they’re giving away their movie free online and then making money by selling books and DVDs:

Animated film a hit in Spain
‘Pocoyo’ mints 3 million downloads

“Animated “Pocoyo” is a big hit in Spain, boasting 3 million content downloads, mobisodes and a TV series. The cuddly, dot-eyed toddler who experiments with a trumpet and cymbals is targeted at the under 4-year-old crowd, with hip moms in Madrid using “Pocoyo” as a baby pacifier.

Co-produced by Blighty’s Granada for ITV’s kids service CITV, it airs Stateside on Discovery Hispanics. Pocoyo and friends bow their YouTube channel next month; a contest will drive user-generated content. Its console game, for Nintendo DS, enters production in November. “Pocoyo” is an Internet success, boasting 3 million content downloads from Pocoyo’s website and 500,000 unique users on creator David Cantolla’s blog.”

Here’s a sample of the animation:
