Help me settle a debate with my 5 year old daughter.

In the children's show Toopy and Binoo, is Binoo a boy or a girl?

Toopy's a girl and Binoo's a boy.For sure.I've researched it before. – user6305 Sep 30 '13 at 23:47
If you could add some context to your answer, it may not be deleted. Without the context (such as links to your research), it is just opinion and conjecture. Please flesh this out some if you would :D – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 1 '13 at 0:32
In some of the books Toopy is referred to as a HE. – user27604 Nov 9 '15 at 0:01

Treehouse TV refers to both characters as 'he'.

Toopy is a mouse with a vivid imagination. He transforms reality into a series of fantastic stories brimming with amazing creatures.

Binoo, the tiny cat, is Toopy’s ideal companion. He shares in the adventures with absolute wonder and untainted innocence, often outdoing Toopy in imagination.

Yah...He is definitely male. – Mistu4u Nov 28 '12 at 15:41
lol, thanks now I can end a long standing argument with a 5 year old. – ThinkingMedia Nov 28 '12 at 16:05

There is no clear answer to that. Ive researched it myself and even the original french characters are never defined as male or female. Toopy most often comes across as a male, but in more than one episode has dressed up as a girl and talked about kissing princes or being beautiful in dresses etc. The voice is a male for sure, but as far as I can tell, the actual orientation of the character is undefined.

Toopy and Binoo are both male but are not subject to gender specific roles.

Welcome to the site! If you could flesh this answer out with some sources, indicating why you believe you're correct, this could be a good answer. Until then, it's just conjecture. – Andrew Martin Feb 15 '15 at 21:26
