Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother), other characters

I know many will like one of the favorite characters of this show:   sihirli_annem_logosu Little orphan Strawberry!!   Ok, her name is actually Çilek, which means strawberry, in Turkish -one look at her hair and you’ll know why!


Another important character is Firuze :  She is the housekeeper for the family, but much more than that, she is a stabilizing force for the kids, and also a connection to a world that they would otherwise have little direct connection with -the working class world.

Then, there is the Turkish equivalent of Bewitched subplot, with magical (usually bumblingly) mother-in-law Dudu Dudu interfering in everyone’s lives, mostly not for the best, until forced to do so.

Main chars were mentioned last week, along with an explanation of this wonderful family show.

Next week, we look at the opening credits: Turkish Tuesdays: Sihirli Annem (My Magical Mother): Cute Theme Song! ;

And then, the following week I hope to start reviewing this series, at last!

    1. Hi, Juliette, thank you for replying here.

      This reply, once I approve it, shows as a comment on my blog, on the post you’ve responded to.

      I can reply privately via email if you prefer. Or, since I moderate all comments before release, any comment to any post or page sits in my Pending Comments box until I reply to it, so you can treat comments as private, if you just tell me not to approve/publicly post that particular comment when you post the reply.

      Great to see you here, and I hope that you find my work interesting enough to judge me well! 🙂
