Blue Marco

by Larry Tremblay



Marco’s life has been turned upside down with the arrival of his baby sister. His mom is so tired, and his father is overwhelmed... His friend Gina takes him on a strange adventure, filled with extraterrestrial creatures made of candy that swallow pills instead of going to school and know everything and anything anyone needs to know. Marco has to draw a picture for a school project, but since he doesn’t have much artistic talent, Gina gives him a “drawing pill”. That’s when a Marco bleu alter ego appears and introduces our young hero to his colourful world and somewhat eccentric family. When the boy returns from this fantastical adventure, he understands that life on earth can be extraordinary... even with a baby sister!

Blue Marco gets children to think philosophically about their lives, imagining a different way of living,” says Larry Tremblay. “On Marco bleu’s planet, there are only two days in a week: Saturday and Sunday. The show will allow children to reflect on time and their relation to it: why are there seven days in a week? Can being aware of other perspectives and learning about people who live differently help us be more tolerant?”

Marco is a seven-and-a-half-and-a-bit year old with a playful and sensitive outlook on the world around him.


Gina is Marco’s best friend. She often tells stories, and sometimes lies a little.


Marco bleu
He is an alien. He looks just like Marco, except he’s blue. He lives on another planet where there are only two days: Saturday and Sunday.


He is Marco’s dad, always very busy with Maria-Helena because mom is very tired.



She is Marco’s mom, who also gave birth to Maria-Helena, his baby sister. She is very tired, but also quite kind. 


Baby Maria-Helena
She is a newborn baby girl. Actually, she’s barely born because she’s so very new. Marco thinks that her face looks like a wrinkled cabbage.



Lili rouge

She is very tall, all red, and lives in Marco Bleu’s closet. She loves reading books but hates when someone disturbs her.
