The Color Computer had a number of clones and relatives. All have some differences from the TRS-80/Tandy Color Computer, they also bear some significant resemblance and some degree of compatibility, whether because of a similar hardware design, a similar Microsoft BASIC, or the commonality of the OS-9 operating system.
When it comes to clones, Brazil is a special case meriting its own category. From 1984 to 1992, Brazil had a strict policy of trade protectionism for computer hardware and software. As a result, many globally important computer platforms of the era had Brazilian clones, and the CoCo was no exception, with several clones.
