Funny Fanto

Fanto and Pivi are best friends living together. One day their lives are turned upside down when they find an egg on their doorstep.

This series tells the charming and funny story of how they deal with suddenly having a baby in the house.

Practical issues like how to get a stubborn baby to brush its first tooth. Where does the unpleasant smell come from – the friends launch an investigation. But also more emotional things like having to share a friend or family member.

It is exhausting, and at some point Fanto wants to return Fantus at the library, like a rented book. But in the end they realise their lives are richer and funnier with the baby around.
