Tumtum the dinosaur makes a lot of noise stomping around, though he becomes so quiet when grownups are around that they don't believe he exists. Tib is teased in his stone-age tribe for his clumsiness and for the birthmark on his face. When he meets Tumtum, Tib finds a friend who has a birthmark too—and who accepts Tib just the way he is. Episodes 1 and 2 will be screened together and the original French versions of “Tib and Tumtum” are also available online, offering an opportunity to compare the French and English for language development. While fantasy elements are included (dinosaurs and humans co-existing), the introduction of natural science vocabulary is also a benefit for young patrons.
