Sissejuhatav osa seriaalile JEHOBU JKSU LOOD

...something always happens with young hippos in Estonia...

Jippos Happy the Hippo is a hefty hippopotamus weighing 350 kg. He is more energetic than most hippos and he is curious about everything new and interesting. Jippos is most friendly and polite but sometimes slightly absent-minded and thus tends to get into trouble.

His brother Pippos Happy the Hippo is a bit smaller than Jippos and weighs 150 kg. He is clever and more moderate in character. When Jippos is in trouble he is there to help him out.

Aimed at children and the child-like the animated series Jippos the Hippo comprising 30 three-minute parts is based on the story about a family of hippopotamuses written by a boy of nine, Christopher-Johannes Staak.
The Stories of Jippos Happy the Hippo is a tale about a young independent hippopotamus, who lives in Finland but comes to Estonia to visit his brother Pippos. Jippos wants to be clever and independent in everything he does.
However, not everything does come out as expected which is why Jippos gets involved in surprising situations and astonishing adventures with funny solutions.
