Me Too! is a British live-action educational television programme for preschool children broadcast on BBC Two and CBeebies from September 2006 to March 2007. It is set in the fictional city of Riverseafingal in Scotland, though in reality the programme is filmed in North Berwick, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Newcastle upon Tyne and Manchester. The round school in the programme is a real school situated in Gourock, called Gourock Primary School.
Me Too! was produced by Glasgow-based production company Tattiemoon. One of the directors is Andrew Agnew, who played PC Plum from Balamory which had the same similarities in concept as Me Too!.
The series follows six parents and their children, including Rebecca, Jack, Kai and Lisa, and a dog called Sampson who are apart during the day (except for Kai, who would go at night due to his mother Bobby's night time job) as the children go to Granny Murray's and the parents go to work. At various points in the programme, the parent will think of their child and a 'think puff' travels across the city to Granny Murray's, then the child will think of their parent and the 'think puff' will travel back to the parents' work.
The programme then alternates between what the parents are doing at work and what the children are doing with Granny Murray. One of the aims behind the series is to reassure children of working parents who go to childminders that their parents are always thinking of them. In addition, children get a view into an adult's working day (simplified and more entertaining than a real work day for children's benefit).
Each episode's plot hinges on a problem that develops at work and the main character's "race against time" to sort it out. Granny Murray has always provided a kernel of wisdom during the programme's opening that helps in solving the problem. The programme features much usage of clocks and time, and hence also aims to teach young children to tell the time.
