"Pocoyo's Balloon" is the 8th episode of the second season of Pocoyo.

Why It Doesn't Deserve a Balloon

Pocoyo, being the bully he is, a malicious jerk to his friends.
  1. The episode tries way too hard to make you sympathize with Pocoyo because of him losing his balloon. But instead, it will make you very annoyed and irritated after a while because of Pocoyo's whininess and will instead make you feel sorry for his friends for having to deal with it.
  2. Pocoyo is very unlikeable in this episode. as he throws a huge temper tantrum over losing his balloon, which in fact, contradicts his character in the main series since he’s supposed to be a nice person.
    • Even if it's common for a 4-year-old to get upset over a possession they lost, it still doesn't excuse Pocoyo's actions in the episode.
    • Speaking of Pocoyo's behavior, he acts incredibly ungrateful towards his friends who try their hardest to cheer him up, but Pocoyo just acts rudely towards them:
      • Caterpillar, Baby Bird, and Elly try to make him dance with them as a way of cheering him up, but he just makes them stop and tells them to go away.
      • What makes him incredibly ungrateful here is that Pato offers Pocoyo a balloon for free, but Pocoyo just walks up to it and pops Pato's balloon just because he claimed that it was "not his".
  3. Much like the Caillou episode "Caillou Joins the Circus", the episode is mostly a bad influence on children, because a child could watch this episode could make them mimic Pocoyo's actions and therefore cause them to throw tantrums much like Pocoyo did in this episode.
  4. Plot hole: It is never shown what happened to Caterpillar and Baby Bird at the end of the episode when Pocoyo came back to his friends.
  5. Aside from getting told off by the narrator, Pocoyo doesn't receive that much of a punishment for what he did to his friends and gets off scot-free for his actions.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The first few minutes of the episode were decent.
  2. The ending is good, as Pocoyo learns his lesson by overthrowing a tantrum after losing his balloon and making up with his friends.
  3. Albeit poorly executed, the episode at least teaches a good moral that you shouldn't throw tantrums.
  4. Pocoyo's friends and The Narrator are likable characters.

Reception

The episode received negative reception from fans and reviewers of the show, due to Pocoyo's behavior.
