German Globo is a German-language BBC schools TV series from the 1990s, covering German Language for secondary school pupils.

A series of short animated episodes telling the adventures of an extra-terrestrial called Globo, who lands his spaceship in 31st Century Germany, meets some local teenagers and has to learn German to be able to communicate with them.

There is very only limited, simple dialogue with the appeal to join in learning the language coming from the humour of the animation and the everyday activities that Globo learns about.

The Globo series was originally produced in French and set in Paris, as part of the TV series Le Club. It was then translated into Spanish and German to support those additional languages, with some monuments and words seen on screen altered to reflect the different languages. This German version was generally screened as a stand-alone 5 minute programme, and on one occasion as an omnibus of all the episodes one after another overnight in the 'Learning Zone' strand.
