Soda Pop is an anarchic story full of playful nonsense in which the usual rules and prejudices do not exist.

 Soda Pop loves bright orange clothes and wears a tea cozy on his head. He has brought up his son Mazarin on sweet buns and love. Grandfather Dartanyong emerges from his woodshed every morning with a new identity, and Great-grandfather has moved into a tree, eats birdseed, and thinks he is a cuckoo.

Theirs is a carefree life, untroubled by social norms. In this tolerant world anything can happenis the garage suddenly full of tigers? We are not surprised.

Soda Pop is a glorious mix of the absurdity of Spike Milligan with the boldness of Pippi Longstocking.
