Pikku Kakkonen

Pikku Kakkonen

"Pikku Kakkonen" (Finnish for "the little two") is an ongoing Finnish magazine-type children's TV show shown on YLE TV2. The first episode aired on January 11 1977. It finished with a bedtime story read by Lasse Pöysti and an East German Sandman animation, like hundreds of episodes after that.

The "Pikku Kakkonen" hosts speak in an unforgettable Tampere dialect, and its signature melodies (The "Pikku Kakkonen" mail tune and the main title tune) have been made into mobile phone ringing tones. The intro animation by Camilla Mickwitz was made in 1983.
