The Broco show was a daily morning variety show for children, co-hosted by Annie Brocoli and her loyal companion, Germaine, the squirming vegetarian frog.
Every week, two young participants were invited into the Grand Ballroom of the mansion to take up three challenges with Annie Brocoli and the broco-singers: to sing, to disguise their friends and to dance a choreography with Annie.
For each program, a new amusing theme provided a tone and inspire the set design, costumes and choice of songs. Thanks to the applause of the little Brocolis in the kingdom and at home, the young participants went back home carrying their well-earned trophy, a gold Brocoli!
Annie Brocoli’s career was launched in 1999 with a first recording, which didn’t take long to enthral an army of pint-sized fans. In quick succession there was Annie Brocoli dans l’espace, Noël dans l’espace, Annie Brocoli dans les fonds marins, La danse des vitamines and Broco show.
