The value box of "Nice Butterfly" - a valid reason not to close the corporation Israel today


The mythological children's program is back for the second season • The parents of the current generation of toddlers are aware of the potential of the butterfly effect, and will surely be happy to know that the remake is faithful to the original • Also: Natasha Lyonne steals the show in a new series

For the children of the eighties and nineties the series "Nice Butterfly" is a cornerstone in the structure of their personality.

They grew up on it, as we say the zatots these days grow up on the confused brook and the small container.

In fact, this comparison is exaggerated, because unlike most of the content broadcast in our time, the mythological educational program was an ingenious and generational pedagogical work in all its layers.

From the iconic holiday episode with Ofra Haza, through the episode on the box that won international awards, to the songs written for the shows (Hello, that's how the color was born and more), almost everything they did back then - not only survives the test of time, but also circulates in kindergartens to this day.

The secret of the success of the program as a whole is the fact that educationally they knew how to create a character for the dolls and turned them into the stars of the series.

Uza was the initiative and opinionated, a kind of Girl Power who was ahead of her time;

Noli was innocent and gentle, my character was a nerdy and anxious snail, while Betz was a chubby, heavy and lazy turtle.

Four dolls that entered the pantheon of culture because they were an inspiration among the preschoolers.

All of them except the annoying Pingy, who joined at a late stage and was a controversial figure of an arrogant, provocateur, disturbing and strange penguin with a shrill voice and a crooked walk.

He startled generations of children, and it's a great luck that he was removed from the updated version of "Nice Butterfly", the second season of which aired yesterday on "Kan".

The children of the eighties and nineties are the parents of the current generation of toddlers.

They know the box of values ​​that "Nice Butterfly" can provide for their children, are aware of the potential of the butterfly effect, and will surely be happy to know that the remake is faithful to the original.

The spirit is the same spirit of "Nice Butterfly" - stories, songs, educational dilemmas, a simple and accepting discourse, not wrapped in sponsored content or trying to sell merchandise on the parents' backs.

And above all, the dolls that remain exactly the same.

The opening episode presented a situation where the plan goes wrong and does not come to fruition, and instead of fruit for the salad the messenger brought a box of lemons.

"We can make lemonade out of the lemon, make the sour sweet," Oza was excited.

Because as "nice butterfly" taught us - sometimes I'm sad and sometimes happy, but I always remain me.

Moral of the story: If Shlomo Karai, the Minister of Communications, wants to close down the corporation and cancel a program like "Nice Butterfly" because of a delusion of grandeur and a desire to control the media, then it basically means that he is worse than Pingi.

Natasha's friends

If fate had taken a different turn, Natasha Lyonne could have been an Israeli prodigy, fighting with Tiltil over rice in "VIP Survival" or playing alongside Amos Tamm and Yehuda Levy in a generic drama.

As a child she lived with her parents in Israel and at the age of 9 she acted in the movie "April Fool's Day" with Tzipi Shavit and Sefi Rivlin.

But then the family returned to America, and Lyon grew up to be the kind of actress who steals the focus in every movie or series in which she participates (for example, "American Pie", "Orange is the New Black", "Russian Doll").

Now she leads a new and fun series, "Poker Face", the first four episodes of which went up on yes's VOD this weekend. Lyon plays a character who lives in danger and therefore travels from city to city in the USA.

Everywhere she gets caught up in a bizarre murder mystery and manages to crack it by the end of the episode.

Be friends with Natasha, it's worth it.
