From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maisy Mouse is a fictional mouse from the picture book series created by British illustrator Lucy Cousins. These books come highly recommended in Eden Ross Lipson's The New York Times Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children (ISBN 0-8129-3018-5).

Maisy is also an animated series developed by Nickelodeon from 1999-2001 and aired on Noggin from April 1, 2002 to November 2007. As of November 3, 2008, the series will air daily on Qubo Channel at 6:30 AM and 10 AM (ET). It uses a reggae-influenced theme song and voice characterizations by the Umbilical Brothers. The British version of the show features Neil Morrissey as narrator, and he also sings on the theme tune. Maisy has adventures and plays with her friends Charley the Crocodile, Tallulah the Baby Chicken, Cyril Squirrel, and Eddie Elephant. Maisy lives in a yellow house with a red roof. A mellow-voiced announcer narrates the action and communicates with the characters while the animals go through their paces without speaking; they instead grunt, yowl, mumble, moan, and make various odd sounds and noises. Only the narrator can understand their gibberish. The animated series keeps the charming two-dimensional look and feel of the books. It was produced by PolyGram Television and later as Universal Television when it got absorbed. The 2001 episodes were produced by 20th Century Fox Television, but the later episodes were produced by Universal.
