Tromba Trem (lit. Trunk Train) is a Brazilian animated series created by Zé Brandão. The program is a coproduction between animation studio Copa Studio and private/public network stations TV Brasil and TV Cultura.

Summary

One day, in the Brazilian Cerrado, an indian elephant named Gajah, falls from the sky, soon meeting with a vegetarian red anteater named Duda, and a colony of green termites, who believe they are aliens from outer space. All of them embark on a journey through South America in a train, looking after a mysterious blimp, the termites believing it's their spaceship who will take them to home.

Why It Rocks

  1. The series is successful in all of Latin America, being shown on Tooncast and Boomerang, and in the UK, which is distributed by Cake Entertainment.
  2. Great soundtrack, especially the show's intro, with lyrics by Felipe Barros.
  3. In every episode, a new character and a new location is introduced, which is interesting.
  4. Nice, relatable characters like Gajah, Duda, and Júnior.
  5. Mestre Urubu gives good advices to Gajah, despite his bad habits.
  6. The voice acting is good.
  7. There's a lot of funny moments.
  8. The flash animation in the first season is cute and nicely done, though the ToonBoom animation from seasons 2-3 is more fluid, and more colorful.

Bad Qualities

  1. Gajah sometimes gets treated like a butt-monkey.
  2. The Queen and the Captain termites can be unlikable.
    • A few of the one-shot characters can be unlikable too, like Tânia Taturana from the episode Taturana Show.
  3. The concept of the show can seem very stupid and random, especially for the termite colony who believes they are from another planet.
  4. Duda can sometimes be very annoying for her childish behavior.

Trivia

  • This was one of the only two pilots of the "Anima TV" contest to officially be greenlit to an animated series, the other is Carrapatos e Catapultas.
