Meet our Shooz!
Mentor, playmate, teacher, entertainer – Mango explains the world to the Shooz and the viewer by means of visions that float up from his bowl in a bubble. Once the subject has been discussed, the bubble pops and the show goes on. But sometimes, even Mango needs a bit of peace and quiet. Then he retreats to his magic clamshell which also serves as a suitcase of many wonders. He likes to pull the lid down and have a snore as little bubbles drift up. A benign sage and mentor, Mango is also the arbitrator and has the final word.
