Summary

Hi Opie! is a live-action preschool series that follows the social, emotional and intellectual escapades of 5-year-old Opie, a new kid in kindergarten and your new puppet friend. Opie and his real kid classmates are in their first year of kindergarten – uncertain just what to expect. With each new day, Opie learns more about himself, his friends and his teachers. Each story marks a new chapter in Opie’s personal growth as he participates in, struggles with and inevitably succeeds in kindergarten activities. Every episode has a clear and attainable goal, that is achieved through the process of learning through play - having fun, asking questions, experimenting with the consequences of one’s actions, persevering through adversity and imagining.
