Doki (also known as Doki Adventures[1]) is a Canadian animated children's television series produced by Portfolio Entertainment for Discovery Kids. The series debuted on Discovery Kids in Latin America on April 15, 2013.

Plot

Doki is about a seven-year-old[5] dog named Doki and his five friends, who are members of the Worldwide Expedition Club, a travel group. 

Characters

  • Doki (voiced by Griffin Hook) is a curious seven-year-old dog, whose love of adventure makes crazy situations no problem for him. Doki is always open to suggestions and tips from his friends. He learns from his mistakes and applies his knowledge to his adventures. He wears a green cap.
  • Mundi (voiced by Tara Emo) is a ladybug, who is also an expert mechanic. She is very honest and always helps others when needed.
  • Oto (voiced by Caden Hughes in 1–59 episodes, Collin Dean in 39 episodes–present) is an anteater, and the captain, conductor, or driver of any vehicle or transport method that the group of explorers use in their adventures. His confidence doesn't always fit with their skills and perfect landings. Oto loves to change clothes, costume or hat and almost always travels with his friend Mundi. Mundi can fix what he breaks.
  • Anabella (voiced by Katie Grant) is a hot pink flamingo, and the innocent, loving little sister of the group. Always happy and loving, she tends to daydream and can easily get distracted by anything beautiful or unusual. She is deeply sensitive, and she often expresses how she feels by dancing. Anabella has a free spirit, and is open and adventurous. Doki admires her and often accompanies her on all her adventures.
  • Gabi (voiced by Sarah Sheppard) is a bright, energetic, and precocious goat who is the most grown-up of the group and often uses complex words that the team doesn't always understand. She has a great sense of humor and is brave, loyal, stubborn when necessary, and very competitive. Despite her obvious maturity, Gabi hides a weakness; a tendency to believe that she is the smartest of the group, appearing insensitive to the feelings of others and her great heart the salvation of all complicated situations. She has a pet worm named Lancelot.
  • Fico (voiced by Lucas Kalechstein) is a blue otter, and the silly one of the group who is always happy and known for being funny, affectionate, and impulsive. He's like a whirlwind, impetuous and energetic, to the point of almost being hyperactive. However, he gets confused and easily distracted sometimes, and this situation usually leads to awkward and difficult situations that put him in trouble. He loves risky activities, water sports, and speed.
