Experiencing Interruptions?

Vlady & Mirò

Vlady & Miró is a fun and entertaining series for kids and grown-ups alike.

Vlady the raccoon and his best friend Miró the bear, are getting ready to go into hibernation.
Everything is going just fine, until Miró starts….. SNORING!
So, if Vlady wants to sleep too, he’s got a single, most important, indispensable and necessary mission: make the snoring stop immediately!

Each episode is a series of ideas and strategies where Vlady attempts to stop Miró’s snoring: some are crazy and brilliant, some stupid and dangerous, and some unpredictable and impossible – but all nevertheless hysterically funny!

After exactly four minutes, Vlady succeeds in his objective and is finally able to fall asleep. That is when he begins to have such a beautiful dream, along with the hopes that this dream will last all Winter.
Vlady dreams (for a minute) of becoming a superhero, a secret agent, a race car driver, an outstanding athlete, a famous actor, and so much more… Until he wakes up with a start.
OH NO! Mirò is snoring louder and louder!
