Multiculturalism is an umbrella term that makes people from various cultures in a community share equal respect and acceptable for each other. Multiculturalism should be introduced earlier for children since they are living in globalization era where one cultural identity may disappear easily and this can be learned in many ways. However, if it is related to children, it should be taught in fun ways in order to have more meaningful significance for them. One way that can be used by parents or any educators to encourage multicultural education is by using film animations that are closely related to children's environment, such as Adit and Sopo Jarwo animation series produced by Indonesian's talented people. This animated series represents culture of Indonesia and brings multicultural messages shown by the characters through the language spoken, the setting, and the narration. This article explains how Adit and Sopo Jarwo animation series give examples of multiculturalism as people from different ethnic backgrounds are at one place and live harmoniously together as one community. It is expected that children can appreciate differences or similarities that are shared by the people around them and make them becoming persons who are able to function effectively in the multicultural society of Indonesia.
