I Want to Be Tall

When Nanou measures Bali and his friends height, they discover that Bali hasn't grown as much as the others. This upsets Bali, as he doesn't like being the shortest. In his dream he awakens in bed, having grown over night. Thrilled, he gets up and continues to grow. But things begin to get out of hand as he becomes as tall as the city. In 'reality', Bali discovers that growing at one's own speed is ok.

series description

Bali, a resolutely modern preschooler, lives a resolutely modern life in the big city. With a most un-stereotypical family, Bali faces the world inquisitively, sometimes shyly, never recklessly, and always enthusiastically. Both of Bali's parents work, and Bali's dad takes a very active role in handling the family's daily grind. The triumphs and concerns of Bali deal with many of today's social issues for children: nannies, divorce and little everyday traumas such as going back to school and first sleepovers. Targeted to pre-schoolers, the animated series BALI features a painterly graphic style with bold colors, along with a strong musical score and original songs designed to encourage movement. Each half-hour episode focuses on a theme, including helping those in need, dealing with new experiences, asking for help, facing a challenge and following instructions.
