Great idea, I think. A fun and accessible way to educate newcomers about their new country, expectations, culture etc.

These are in English, but similar videos exist in Dari, Arabic,..

There's a whole channel here in Italy called Babel, i don't think they have come up with cartoons yet but it's a channel which keeps immigrants informed about what's happening back home and in their host country (their news air in six different languages), its journalist are mostly second generation immigrants, it's a shame that its channel is too far back and hard to access for most Italians who look at the first ten channels at most. It's won European channel of the year in 2011

They're OK, but it should include a section about respecting gay people, which is totally alien concept to almost all immigrants.

They should do it for themselves at first before they could teach others...


Refugees really are in troubles in finland, I read red cross workers cannot help 50 year old men who are crying... Because in finland.. men does not cry.. at public..

I think there should be a cartoon to finnish people what to do when 50 years old man is crying.. I believe it would more fruitfull to teach free crying to finnish men than try to teach refugees to not cry..

Today's "Totally Incomprehensible Ramble" award.

Congratulations.

This reluctance for grown men to cry in public may explain why Finns do so badly at the Oscars.
