Lippy and Messy is a television series for children (3–6 years of age) produced by the team of Bell Krakow and TVP (Polish Public TV). It combines entertainment with English language teaching. The heroes, a mischievous boy-clown Messy and a talkative girl-clown Lippy, go through amusing adventures and each time they learn new words, new language structures and at least one original song. They interact with a third character Wizzy (The Wizard of Words), who conjures up objects and situations to explain new language. The actors are British native speakers of English.
SAMPLE EPISODE FROM SERIES 1 Where is Messy?
The 180 episodes (each about 4 minutes long) are divided into five series: Lippy & Messy - in which they learn basic words and phrases and have a lot of fun with Wizzy Lippy & Messy ABC - in which they also learn the letters of the alphabet Lippy & Messy: Do-Be-Do - in which they do lots of tasks and play at being in various jobs Lippy & Messy: Go! Go! Go! - in which they visit different magic lands Lippy and Messy Play and Learn - in which we watch examples of good classroom practice with The Lippy and Messy Teaching Packs.
USERS COMMENTS My daughter is two. When Lippy & Messy is on, she watches it open-mouthed and in absolute silence. My husband and I wish it were on all day long. My four and a half year old daughter loves it. She catches some of the words and is really happy that she understands. My little boy loves watching Lippy & Messy. For him its not English lessons but simply bright colours, catchy songs and simple situations. My little Alex loves Lippy & Messy. Shes simply nuts about it. If she is not in the room and hears the theme tune she arrives like a rocket. The only thing our little girl watches is Lippy & Messy. Its a huge hit. Amanda just sits there hypnotised. Maybe she will be in the one in the family who is good at languages because her parents arent.
