I think I have already written some about how much I love the kids show Toopy and Binoo. It is all kinds of weird, and full of gender non-specific fun. Neither Toopy nor Binoo are gendered, and Toopy's voice is not immediately recognizable as male or female. Toopy is known to rock the princess gear as easily as s/he rocks the knight in shining armour gear. It's pretty cool. But yesterday, while hanging with the smalls, we saw a particularly funny/interesting episode.
Toopy and Binoo, dressed as knights, go on a hunt for a scary wolf and fire breathing dragon, with a bunch of villagers (sheep) in tow.
They eventually find said wolf (dressed in a gown) and said fire-breathing dragon (also dressed to the nines and rocking' heels). Everyone is initially scared of the wolf and the dragon, moreover, the wolf and dragon are scared of each other.
Realizing people are scared, the wolf protests: "I'm not a scary wolf! I'm a PRINCESS!". To which the dragon says, "YOU'RE a princess? I'M a princess, too!"
Toopy, bless his/her chameleon heart, takes this all in stride.
But the villager/sheep can be seen in behind, whispering to each other: "So - is that a wolf or what?!"
Queerest kids show ever...
