Giggle and Hoot is a show is produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for ABC2 and premiered in early 2010 for 2 – 6 years.

 The show is aimed at 2-6 year old and depicts of the adventures of Jimmy Giggle (James Rees), and his best friend Hoot the owl (played by Nicholas Richard) which act for as a TV wrapper for ABC2 kids programs.
Jimmy Giggle and Hoot the Owl are two best mates, living together in their wonky, recycled house, where their neighbours are the best anymore could wish for! They never know who is going to drop in and say hello. The Wiggles, dirtgirl, and the Play School gang all like to visit for a chat, song or a bit of silliness.
It’s a world where curiosity and imagination rule! Where the ordinary is extraordinary and nothing is what it seem.. shower heads are telephones. Bath tubs are beds and fruit and vegetables sing. In between their fun, you’ll see such shows such as Timmy Time, Sesame Street, In the Night Garden, The WotWots, and a whole host of others. Each day promises to be a giggle and a hoot. Every evening we join Giggle and Hoot for the Goodnight hour. As Jimmy Giggle and all his friends prepare for bed. Hoot the Owl stands by for the very important job of night watch. But before he takes off, we are treated to even more songs, stories and fun.
